Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has said he would draw salaries from the state when he becomes the President of Ghana.
In an exclusive interview announcing his intention to run for the flagbearership slot of his political party, NPP, the Law maker said he intends to donate his salary to the state as according to him, he has too much money to take good care of himself.
“When I become President, I won’t draw salaries from the state…no, I don’t need salary from the state because excuse me to say, I wouldn’t be able to pay ‘chop money’ or take good care of myself when I withdraw salaries from the state…,” he said.
Ken Agyapong who has been an MP since the year 2000 when he contested on the ticket of the NPP in Assin Central has been the favourite of the youth due to words of encouragement he offers them.
The firebrand said he would rather establish presidential scholarships for Ghanaian youth when he becomes the country’s leader in the near future.
“I will establish what we will call presidential scholarship with my salary. I mean my salary will be used to fund the scholarship for the poor but needy in society especially in the rural areas…,” he added.
