A maverick politician and Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has expressed disappointment and is dismay over circumstances which has pushed the Akufo-Addo administration to head to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for financial assistance.
According to the successful businessman who is seeking to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as flag bearer for the 2024 polls, “going to IMF is just like handing over power to the NDC without a contest” adding that, there are dire consequences for the party ahead of the upcoming polls.
He explained further that, with all ‘bad things’ he specifically said about the Mahama administration about heading to the IMF for bailout, the Akufo-Addo government is a disappointment to him and many Ghanaians for following suit.
“It is just like handing over power to NDC without a contest, straight away because of the noise we made, and I chew my own words back when I said the NDC went to IMF because of mismanagement of the economy. So if NPP is going to IMF, what am I going to say?” Hon. Agyepong quizzed.
“So breaking the 8 is going to be tough. My message to you is simple, you cannot read my lips and I am not scared of anybody in the party, I will tell you the gospel truth, those who take you to IMF cannot break the 8” he added.
