Kennedy Agyepong’s constituents fight for him
Constituents in the Assin Central have promised a showdown with detractors of the lawmaker for the area.
They alleged that some elements within the party in collusion with National Democratic Congress (NDC) faithful are planning a demonstration against New Patriotic Party (NPP) firebrand Kennedy Agyepong, who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for the constituency.
But in response to their threats, the youth wing of the NPP observed that Kennedy Agyepong should rather be hailed for his contributions to the development of the area.
“Hon Kennedy Agyepong has done a lot and no one can compare to what he has achieved. He facilitated the creation of the Assin South District. Every Community in Assin has a legacy of Kennedy Agyepong.
If you look at the Common Fund that comes to him and what he has done it is obvious he has done more than the amount. He pays fees, construct various projects, pays hospital bills among others”, Francis Anning, leader of the youth stated.
According to him, residents of Assin know the good works of their God given MP and therefore cautioned anyone who plans of engaging in any propaganda demonstration in the district to be mindful of such an action.
