Controversial Ghanaian politician and businessman Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has announced his decision not seek contest for a seat in parliament after his tenure elapses in 2024.
Mr Agyapong, who has served Member of Parliament (MP) for the Assin Central 24 years, said he was taking a bow out of Parliament to allow others to explore their political chances to bring more development to the area.
The maverick and outspoken millionaire lawmaker made his intention known while addressing a gathering of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) faithful at its annual Delegates Conference held in Assin-Fosu over the weekend.
The father of 22 expressed his appreciation to the founding fathers of the Party and the teeming grassroots supporters who had rendered years of unflinching support to the party.
“I’m doing a lot for my people but a whopping 42 per cent of the electorates in the 2020 polls think I’m not doing well, so I’m leaving but would wait patiently to see if any MP can do what I did.”
“Even if I’m given 1,000 cows, I will not go back because I want the people to know that I am fighting for their wellbeing and not myself as an MP,” he stated.
