The donation which was made in Accra saw some party executives from across various constituencies receiving the donation on behalf of its constituents
The donation was made on Tuesday, December 20 when he donated 9000 bags of rice to be shared among NPP Party Faithfuls in the 275 Constituencies.
Honorable Kennedy Agyapong explained how the quantity of the rice must be given out as well as how the distribution would be done.
However, the NPP Chairman for Anloga Constituency in the Volta Region, Joseph Kujo Adranyi, expressed gratitude to the legislator and assured them of equal distribution
Following this, Kennedy Agyapong advised drivers to drive safely during the yuletide and the new year festive season.
He called on Ghanaians to celebrate in moderation by avoiding excessive drinking and other lifestyle which harm them later.
This is not the first time the Outspoken Member of Parliament for the Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Agyapong, has supported the NPP. In April this year, he budgeted an amount of GH¢10,000 budgeted for each 275 constituencies in Ghana to help them organise the internal elections.
According to him, the reigning NPP government has failed to learn from its previous mistakes during the 2020 general elections, losing the majority of its seats in their strongholds to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“I believe in one thing and that is anyone who claims to be a loyal member of the NPP party and has served the party well should be given the opportunity to contest for elections.
“I don’t see why we should be selective and discriminatory. What is happening looks as if we didn’t learn our lessons in the 2020 elections.
“Misunderstandings and open fights between our members cost us seats despite all the good works that President Akufo-Addo and we the NPP government put up in from 2017 to 2020. Currently what is happening tells me we have not learnt our lesson as a political party,” he said.
Also in an exclusive interview with Don Kwabena Prah on Happy98.9 FM’s ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ socio-political talk show recently, Ken Agyapong reiterated that he is open to work with any member of the NPP.
Hence he has made available a total of GH¢2,750,000 to be distributed to the various 275 NPP constituencies in support of the upcoming constituency elections.
“I’ve always said I would criticize others and I expect people to do same to me but that doesn’t mean we’re enemies. I can work with anybody so I’m not going to support one against the other. Therefore I’ve decided to give every NPP constituency GH¢10,000. My GH¢2,750,000 is ready and that is what I’m using to help my party,” he said.
Ken Agyapong further clarified that the money would not be in favour of any personal interest but rather to support the organization of the constituency elections later in April.
Kennedy Agyapong is believed to have hopes for the position of NPP flag bearer. He has declared his intention on several media platforms. He has organized series of hall meetings to speak to the youth and also spread his campaign message.
