The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has expressed disappointment in the President, Nana Akufo-Addo for not being the disciplinarian he has always known to be.
The vociferous lawmaker believes the radical nature of the President before assuming power led many to vote for him due to the belief that he could use that to defeated corruption with that attitude.
The controversial legislator who was speaking on Asaase FM on Sunday bemoaned the level of corruption under the watch of Akufo-Addo who was described as a ‘saint’ prior to the 2016 elections.
He said he was unhappy with the calm nature of the President in fighting the canker in spite of the pressure from watchdogs and Civil Society Organisations.
The Akufo-Addo government under 4 years have been hit by huge corruption allegations with appointees of the President mostly accused as the perpetrators.
Kennedy Agyapong who is worried about his party’s failure to tackle corruption and punish indicted government appointees believes this can cost them the 2020 elections.
“He [President Akufo-Addo] has become so quiet and gentle since he became President, surprisingly he [Akufo-Addo] is so gentle,” Agyapong bemoaned.
Mr. Agyapong lamented that he thought Akufo-Addo would have fought corruption like Rwandan President, Paul Kagame but he believes the President has been tamed.
He believes some people around Akufo-Addo are corrupt and have succeeded in making him quiet over certain corrupt acts, adding that the development is because the president maybe afraid to lose elections.
