The Member of Parliament for North Tongu and a ranking member on Foreign Affairs committee of Parliament, Samuel Okudjeto Ablakwa has launched a scathing attack on the Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyepong over claims he (Ablakwa) has solicited help from him and other Members of Parliament when he run for NUGS President in 2005.
In a post on Facebook the Member of Parliament and a former Deputy Minister of Education called out the Assin North Member of Parliament for shamelessly peddling blatant falsehood.
“My attention has been drawn to an archaic, preposterous and ad hominem tactic of Kennedy Agyapong seeking to malign the messenger as he cannot deal with the message.
“Kennedy Agyapong knows, if he has any modicum of conscience, that he shamelessly peddled blatant fals itehood because I have never received a farthing or pesewa from him neither did I ever go to the House of Parliament to solicit any form of assistance when I run for and won the Presidency of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) in 2005”.
Mr. Ablakwa stated that the concoctions and vicious attacks would not deter him from carrying out his constitutional mandate as a member of Parliament representing the people of North Tongu
“These devious concoctions and vicious attacks on my person would not deter me from carrying out my constitutional mandate of oversight as Member of Parliament duly elected by the beloved people of North Tongu”.
“I would only stop criticizing President Akufo-Addo’s unconscionable profligacy if he stops the US$14,000 an hour wasteful charters when Ghana’s Presidential Jet remains in pristine condition. After all, didn’t the president pledge to protect the public purse?” He stated further.
He added that as adults they should offer better example to the youth of the country.
“In any case, even though Kennedy Agyapong’s claims are outright fabrications, what kind of adult supports vulnerable students and uses that against them later in life? Like many Ghanaians, I do extend charity to the vulnerable including students and I cannot imagine that I would ever use that against them”.
“Adults, let’s offer a better example to the youth of our country”.
