I'll not preach violence and I Dont want anyone to promote violence here, but I assure you he will not spend more than two months in Parliament if he wins. He will be hooted out because he is lying. He had a Canadian passport and I have all the documents. Everything suggests that he is a Canadian. How can a Canadian contest a Ghanaian elections? No one is scared of him," Kennedy Agyapong stated amid cheers from the crowd.
