Controversial lawmaker for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has reiterated his resolve to quit politics for good explaining that there is too much hypocrisy within his own party which he is tired of because some unseen hands are scheming to embarrass him more.
According to the loudmouth politician, he has not been treated fairly by his own party who allowed him to be subjected to public disgrace on the floor of parliament after going all out to defend the party to remain relevant.
“I have decided not to contest again because of NPP and their conduct. The way they are using me and making me face all sorts of embarrassment I do not think I can continue. You can record and go and play to them. Where I have lived my life up to and they are treating me, I am calling it quits”, he revealed in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
He revealed that in the wake the release of investigations by ace Investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas when the NPP realize the contents were embarrassing to the party, he was awoken in the middle of the night to go speak in defense of the party because there was no one to take up that responsibility.
“After mounting a spirited defense for the party against undercover investigations by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, I was disgraced in parliament like a child. I have had enough and I am quitting I am telling you in plain words. Anybody who is at the NPP headquarters lobbying to be a Minister if I am not an MP he cannot run me down. Nobody can also come and ask me to leave my house at 7am and go to defend the party on radio or television. Politics is not the only means through which one can make it. I am tired of NPP”, he revealed.
