If we don't deal with Akuapem Poolo's saga appropriately, other Celebrities will continue to do same

Akuapem Poolo arrest saga involving her naked post with her 7 year old son seems not to die out anytime soon even as more influencial personalities keep jumping on the situation to air their opinions about it. 

Kennedy Ohene Agyapong is a Ghanaian politician and businessman who represents Assin Central in parliament for the New Patriotic Party. He was first elected a Member of Parliament in 2000 to the seat of Assin North. He retained his seat in the 2004 and 2008 parliamentary elections.

Honourable is also known because of how outspoken he is on national issues and concerning popular personalities in the country. In fact, his opinion on issues are of great concern to people and is respected by the masses. He hasn't been heard in the news as often as it used to be. And so for him to break his silence on the Akuapem Poolo's arrest saga simply means that it is of great concern to him.  

He shared his thoughts on the whole saga during The Seat show with Kwaku Annan on NET 2 TV. 

"I am disappointed in how people in this country are going about the whole situation surrounding Akuapem Poolo and son. We like sympathizing with people for the wrong reasons. I don't know why people expect the law to sympathize with people especially when they are women but if the person is a man, they will be ready to go all out for the law to deal with the person. This shouldn't be the case." Honourable claims.

"People must make use of social media in a positive way or to make impact, especially celebrities. What is the education in Akuapem Poolo posting the naked pictures of herself and son? What can our children learn from that? What can the youth learn from that? If we don't deal with Akuapem Poolo's saga appropriately, other celebrities will continue to do same," he sighed.

"Therefore her 90 days behind prison is too small to serve as a deterrent to others. I believe that she has to spend one year behind prison.

Let's forget that she is a woman and allow the laws to deal with her accordingly, if not other celebrities or youth will not learn any lessons from this and will even go on to do worse things than this." The lawmaker revealed.

"Instead of Celebrities using social media to affect lives positively, they rather slay with their new bags, shoes, phones and even go extremely nude on social media. And it's not helping we as Africans or Ghanaians because the white people are rather using social media to promote their businesses and to promote their inventions.

Therefore it's time for we as Ghanaians to learn from that if only we want to see development in this country on every side." He added.

"Another sad thing is that people in this country criticize politicians a lot, but they don't want politicians to criticize celebrities but it must be noted that as far as we are all Ghanaians, we all have the right to address or discuss anything pertaining to Ghana and that nobody is above the law." The lawmaker emphasized.
