Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Ken Agyapong says he will not contest the 2020 parliamentary elections based on advice received from his wife.
According to Mr Agyapong, his wife, after watching the video tendered as evidence against him by MP for Asawase, Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka, got angry and advised him not to contest the seat again.
“My wife told me not to go again and I won’t go again; my constituents will try all they can to persuade me but I won’t go again. I have a life to live and I will entreat people to come see my lifestyle after parliament”.
Speaking on Adom TV’s Morning Show Badwam Tuesday, the MP said his decision was based on unfair treatment received from his colleague politicians.
Mr Agyapong is particularly not happy that when a member of his party described him as not fit to be parliamentarian, nobody came to his defense.
“When the guy said I wasn’t qualified to be an MP and that if I couldn’t stay in Ghana with Anas then I should leave Ghana, no parliamentarian or politician said a thing because it was against Kennedy Agyapong so everybody heard nothing”, he lamented.
Mr Agyapong appeared before the Privileges Committee yesterday and rendered an unqualified apology to parliament and its leadership, insisting that he said parliament was “cheap” and not “useless“.
