For the umpteenth time, Kennedy Agyapong (MP) for Assin Central has managed to hurt the people of Ghana in general and his constituents (the good people of Assin Central) in particular.
The worrying aspect of this unsavoury personal attack on the EC boss is not merely the misogyny and sexual bias it portrays but the unescapable reality that we have sent to Parliament, a person whose orientation and outlook is set in the 16th Century. By this personal attack on the EC Chairperson, the MP has rolled back the years of progress that has been made to ensure gender equity.
We are demanding an immediate apology from Hon. Kennedy Agyapong to the EC boss, the good people of Ghana and the Assin people who he has misrepresented in Parliament for sixteen years. It is instructive to point out that what Kennedy Agyepong said against the person of the Former Boss of the NCCE and now Chairperson of the EC-Mrs Charlotte Osei is not against womanhood ONLY but also men, fathers and husbands hence, our call on him to apologise immediately and most importantly for the Nation to distant those unfortunate comments from the people of Assin Central.
As it is now, we are once again urging members of the Clergy, Civil Society, pressure groups, Women groups and indeed all well-meaning Ghanaians, to show the strongest abhorrence to this unfortunate situation. We are assuring the good people of Ghana that Kennedy Agyapong’s days in Parliament are numbered so far as the Nov 7th elections are concerned, Assinman will not vote for him again to go to Parliament and disgrace us.
The alternative, Hon. Dr. Kofi Blankson of the NDC, is already out there helping to develop the Constituency and restore dignity to the seat in 2017. We are again reiterating our position that our political discourse should not have room for insults and insulting personalities like Kennedy Agyapong. All efforts should be mobilised to STOP any future situation of this nature.
Long live Ghana!
Long live the Assin people!!
Long live the humble and respectful!!!
