Controversial lawmaker for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has stated categorically that he has never taken bribe and will never take bribe from anyone either within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) or the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“I am not holy but I can tell you on authority that no NDC member can claim he has given me bribe before. No Ghanaian can also tell me he or she has given me a bribe”, he stated in an interview he granted an online radio station in Amsterdam monitored by WestAfrica24.com
According to him, he is able to stand the risk and criticize elements within both the NDC and the NPP because he has not taken money from any of them unlike some members within his own party who have benefited from them.
“A lot of our people cannot criticize because I can show you pictures of some of them who go to Seidu Agongo and Ali Seidu to take money. I am not saying these monies given to them are bribes but it could be the case they are faced with hardship and have decided to go for some relief. If today you are in power and they have problems, these people cannot criticize them”, he stated.
The NPP firebrand revealed how he criticized Ali Seidu in the presence of his mother reiterating that he is prepared to die for the truth irrespective of who will be affected by what he says in respect of the truth.
