Some NPP members want my imprisonment - Kennedy Agyapong
Kennedy Agyapong said some persons in the NPP are trying to sabotage his contempt of court case.
Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong says some members of his own New Patriotic Party (NPP) are wishing that he gets jailed.
Speaking on the Wednesday edition of the Seat Show on Net2 TV, the MP alleged that some members of the NPP have made calls to his lawyer, Kwame Gyan, impressing on him to leave him (Kennedy Agyapong) to his fate, in his ongoing contempt of court case.
He said he believes the people clamouring for his incarceration think he is nursing presidential ambitions.
“They are saying I want to become president, me Kennedy Agyapong. Just give me work so I can make some cash and open industries. If you know the industries I am putting up, I want to be president of Tema (industrial area) instead.
"Those who want to be president are there, just give me contracts, case closed. Stop the envy and asking that I be jailed, for contempt how long will I even be jailed for?” he questioned as quoted by pulse.com.gh.
“All those calling my lawyer that I should be left alone to be jailed, the case is not over so I am not going to say anything about it. If you are not brave you won’t support the NPP because I have NPP members calling my lawyer to ask him why he won’t leave me so I get jailed,” he stated
Mr Agyapong then made reference to a quotation in the Bible and said, the attitude displayed by some party faithful is something that was expected.
“The bible says that any leader who is not criticized by some of his people means that he is not doing something right. So obviously you will get people who don’t like you,” he said.
