Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has expressed immense disappointment and pain about recent happenings in connection with the chaos that occurred at the University of Education, Winneba.
Mr. Agyapong, angered by the contents of a statement released by the police administration and what he terms as misconstruction of events by the media, bared his heart out during an interview on Asempa FM, detailing the issues as they happened and vowing to stay ‘mute’ on any and every issue that arises in this country henceforth.
News reports suggested that Mr. Agapong had been ‘warned’ in a statement written and signed by ACP David Eklu, Director General after he supposedly ‘aggressively’ told a serving police officer that he would ensure his dismissal during a student demonstration.
“The Police Administration, therefore, takes very strong exception to the behavior of Mr Kennedy Agyapong who is a Member of Parliament and advises him to be mindful of his actions towards Police Officers whilst performing their lawful duties”, parts of the statement read.
Reacting to this however, Ken Agyapong described the police administration as being rash for not following due process to ascertain the crux of the subject but rather emerging with a statement intended to ‘disgrace’ and mar his hard earned reputation.
He narrated the events that led to his actions Thursday as follows;
“We went to the University of Education, Winneba. We were invited by Education Minister to come and help solve the chaos that was in the school. Education Minister organized the meeting well enough, and we reached an understanding.
The council Chair said he had received a call about the protests and destruction taking place on campus. So we waited after there was a little calm and then we went.
There were three sects; the suspended lecturers, the protesting students and the police team. The lecturers explained to me that there hadn’t been any chaos up until the arrival of the police so I told them to be patient so I could talk to the police.
