Maverick Ghanaian politician, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong has broken his silence on his calm composure in the midst of the drama in Parliament.
The Assin Central MP was captured sitting quietly when some of his colleagues created a chaotic scene during the election of the Speaker of the 8th Parliament on Thursday, January 7, 2021.
His action was commended by many Ghanaians.
Following this, the outspoken legislator has revealed why he took such a decision.
“I didn’t want to destroy Akufo-Addo’s swearing-in that is why I sat down quietly and observed the NDC members.
We [NPP] could have fought,” but it would have dragged and affected the swearing-in of MPs-Elect and eventually the President and his Vice-President’s swearing-in, that is why we from the NPP side decided to be quiet to let the NDC members have their way,” Mr Agyapong said on Oman FM.
