”I AM SORRY” – Kennedy Agyapong tells Parliament
Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has rendered an apology to parliament for describing it as cheap.
He told the privileges committee if the House feels slighted by his comments made on his television station, NET2 TV, he apologises for making them.
Speaking before the Privileges Committee of Parliament on Monday, Mr Agyapong explained that he could not control his anger because the Ashanti Regional Vice Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwabena Nsenkyire had insulted him [Agyapong], claiming that he was not fit to be an MP and that if he (Kennedy) cannot coexist with Anas in Ghana, he should pack bag and baggage and relocate to Togo, and that he was never going to refer to him as an ‘Honourable’ MP.
According to him, he was infuriated by the negative things people were saying about him including some of his own colleagues from parliament after his criticism of Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ number 12 documentary.
“I do not have a problem if Parliament feels offended. I apologize. I’m not a tin god..”- he said.
Aside that, he said his leader (Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu) also joined in the fray and that was why he said even though he respects Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, he was at a loss why he always wanted to disgrace him, which he said caused his outburst.
