"We Will Hand Over To NDC If We Go To IMF" - Ken Agyapong Fumes At Akufo-Addo

The Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency and an aspiring presidential candidate of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Hon Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has expressed disappointment in President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the government about their decision of going to the International Monetary Fund(IMF) for a bailout of the economy.

According to Ken Agyapong, the NPP overly criticized the erstwhile John Mahama-led NDC administration when it decided to go to the IMF in 2015 and therefore if this government also decides to thread the same path, the NDC will have better grounds and loopholes to criticise about the government and that will consequently lower their chances of breaking the eight come December 7, 2024.

"Going to the IMF will be just like handing over power to NDC without a contest, straight away because of the noise we made, and I chew my own words back when I said the NDC went to IMF because of mismanagement of the economy. So if NPP is going to IMF, what am I going to say? So breaking the eight is going to be tough," Ken Agyapong advised.

Speaking at an ongoing NPP National Constituency Officers Welfare workshop in the Eastern Regional capital, Koforidua on Friday, July 1, 2022, Mr. Agyapong said that he is not scared of anybody in the party and that he will speak nothing but the gospel truth. He also said that the NPP cannot break the eight because they made too much noise during the erstwhile John Mahama administration.

"My message to you is simple, you cannot read my lips and I don't look like someone who is scared of anybody in the party, I will tell you the gospel truth, those who take you to IMF cannot break the eight," he said at the on-going NPP National Constituency Officers Welfare workshop at Koforidua in the Eastern Region Friday.
