I Will Buy My Own Motorcade When Voted As President In 2024 – Kennedy Agyapong



Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Hon Kennedy Agyapong has said that buying a motorcade will be his headache and not that of the nation if he becomes the president of the Republic of Ghana.

He said he is the right man to lead the party and eventually become the president the country needs at these difficult times.

In a radio interview on some of the things he will do should he become president, the maverick lawmaker said he will introduce several measures that will cut costs at the Presidency.

He, for instance, said he will use his money to buy the motorcade he will use as the leader of the country.

“In 2024 I’m contesting and I tell you two things. I will never receive a salary. I will buy my motorcade. I don’t want anything from the government. If my tenure ends too, I will leave all the cars I bought as a motorcade to the state”, he said.

If I did not come to embezzle money as a President and you as a Minister you engage in corruption I will fire you’, he added.

Kennedy Agyapong, also in a recent engagement expressed worry over the hikes in interest rates in Ghana.

He said a reduction in the interest rates would allow small businesses to borrow and to start up or expand their businesses, thereby creating jobs and putting money in the pockets of Ghanaians.

“Interest rates in Ghana are very ridiculous and make it virtually impossible for local businesses to compete favorably with foreign companies,” Kennedy Agyapong said.

He attributed the high rates to the high cost of operations and operational inefficiencies, bad debts, inadequate collateral, and generally high lending risks in the country.

He indicated that most commercial banks added their profit margins to the loans they gave out, which ended up raising the interest rates.

“Many businesses have been complaining about this,” he noted, adding that the high-interest rates were the reason most Ghanaian companies would rather import finished goods, instead of producing them locally.”
