Maverick New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Agyapong has expressed regrets that politics has taken the better side of an otherwise beautiful relationship that exists between himself and former president Mahama and his family.
According to him, but for politics, the cordial and warm relationship with the former First family was superb and the envy of many including members of his own party, the NPP
He expressed worry that such beautiful and blossoming relationships with perceived opponents are truncated usually because of the entrenched positions that people expect them to take.
Speaking on an Accra based local radio station and monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Mr Agyapong noted that because of his closeness with former president Mahama and his family, he is usually measured when it comes to discussing matters involving the former first gentleman and his family
He is hoping for a time to come when maturity will take the place of mediocrity and when politicians will look beyond their own political parties but extend genuine hands of friendship to their opponents in the quest for peace and broader political tolerance in terms of expression of divergent views.
The former First Lady has sarcastically intimated that in the absence of her husband John Mahama, the next person she would ‘marry’ is the NPP politician and businessman.
Mrs. Mahama confessed to her husband that she admired Kennedy Agyapong to the extent that she sarcastically would want to marry him if he (John Mahama) was not around.
The NPP MP made this revelation on Accra based Okay Fm, monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
According to him, the former president approached him in parliament some time ago and asked whether he (Kennedy Agyapong) was aware that he was his (John Mahama)
