The member of Parliament for Assin Central under the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Hon. Kennedy Agyapong has stated that he won’t campaign for the NPP in 2020 as he did for them in the build-up to the 2016 elections.
According to the politician, the NPP has disappointed the people they went to campaign to hence his decision not to go to such areas again to solicit for their votes when is getting to elections.
“We went to Magazine and campaigned and that day the crowd that came out was just unimaginable but this time if you ask me to go there today, I will not go because we have disappointed me. I am telling you the truth”, he disclosed.
“I am waiting for them to come and tell me to go outside the country to campaign. I can’t do it because anytime I travel outside the country they ask me about import duties. Look at Aboshie Okai and Kumasi Magazine, the Kayayei girl organized people to come and carry their pans. I cannot go to the Magazine again because they are angry. But as I speak, there are a lot of ‘booklong’ people in the party who say my economic is elementary”, he added.
Mr. Kennedy Agyapong last year observed that if the Akufo-Addo government is not aware of the implications of its tax imposition decisions on Ghanaian businesses, he himself visited some areas in Tema and reports that high taxes which “doesn’t make sense” is causing the collapse of many businesses and Ghanaians are losing their means of employment.
He ended by saying Ghanaian and expatriate businesses are all been affected as they cannot sustain their operations due to the high tax demands coupled with high import duties from the Akufo-Addo government.
