Asiedu Nketia, the Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has expressed concerns that if Kennedy Agyapong were to lead, Ghana could become a state where law and order are not upheld. He argues that Kennedy Agyapong, as a person, does not have faith in the country’s legal system.
He claims that the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, prefers to respond to those who oppose him with physical aggression rather than relying on the legal system. As an example, when Agyapong had a dispute with Wontumi and Wontumi threatened to report him to the police, Agyapong’s response implied that he considered Wontumi weak for resorting to law enforcement, suggesting that he would confront him directly.
If someone aspires to become a president, their focus should ideally be on upholding the rule of law. However, this doesn’t seem to align with Kennedy Agyapong’s statements. He expressed a willingness to confront his opponents directly and prepare for such confrontations, instead of resorting to legal or military authorities.
This, according to Mr. Asiedu Nketiah implies that if this approach is endorsed within their political party and some of their members engage in similar actions, it could result in a culture of confrontational behavior. ‘General Mosquito’ is worried that if Agyapong were to become president, he might be seen openly engaging in physical altercations with his adversaries, which is not conducive to good governance.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia also pointed out that even under the current administration of the New Patriotic Party, there is a lack of fairness in how people are treated because he claims the law does not apply equally to everyone.
