If the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) is banking its hopes on outspoken lawmaker, Kennedy Agyapong to campaign for it in 2020, then it better rethink because he has served notice he would not campaign for the party either in Ghana or elsewhere outside the country.
According to a radio interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com, the NPP firebrand has officially declared he would not venture into certain areas to campaign for the party where he actively did in the 2020 polls.
“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.
His justification is that the current NPP government has failed spare parts dealers at Magazine with a promise to slash import duties of spare parts adding he will not go outside the country to campaign either.
“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 bemoaned.
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.
According to Mr Agyapong, Ghanaian and expatriate businesses are all been affected as they cannot sustain their operations due to the high tax demands coupled with high import duities from the Akufo-Addo government.
