Member of Parliament(MP) for the Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has called out some of his colleague legislators for splashing their photos on relief items and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) they donated to their constituents in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.
He says it is cheap for any Member of Parliament to want to take political advantage of a serious national issue that requires all hands on deck like the fight against Coronavirus.
“What politicians are doing will not help this country; you see people slashing their pictures on Veronica buckets; you will see President Mahama walk around doing cheap politics; I was surprised when I heard the very decent Rawlings’ daughter also making cheap political allegations over the sharing of food”, he said in an interview on his Net 2 TV.
“but for future reference,bi wouldn’t have brought my donations to the limelight, but if I don’t, people will say in future that I make empty noise without doing anything to help the country”, he said.
“So the politicians are not helping; the are politicising the issue. I have also seen NPP MPs who have put their pictures on Veronica buckets and that is cheap; it’s below their standard, they should stop that; it is the country you are helping and God knows your heart”, he said.
Kennedy Agyapong has made arguably the singular largest contribution to the fight against coronavirus.
He had earlier donated some 100,000 nose makes, 3000 PPEs, 450 hospital beds, gallons of liquid soap and hand sanitizer and some monetary commitments, before topping it up with his latest donation to the Presidency.
