The Association of Widows and Widowers in the Bantama constituency is demanding an unqualified apology from Mr. Kennedy Agyapong, the New Patriotic Party’s Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central in the central region for using derogatory words against them without any provocation.
Mr. Florence Awuah, leader of the Association at a press conference last Sunday 14, January 2024 explained that, the Assin Central MP’s meeting with NPP delegates recently towards his brother Ralphael Agyapong intention to contest Mr Asenso Boakye,the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Bantama constituency stated that, the MP’s late mother was a common Tuozafi (TZ) seller or chop Bar operator, the business most of the Widows do to take care of their children in schools until the MP always come into their aid since he became the legislature for the constituency.
According to her, Mr Agyapong comment against the MP’s mother is an insult to the windows in the country, adding that if Kennedy Agyapong and his brother have anything for the constituency, they should channel it to the development of the electorates especially widows and widowers who are struggling to take care of their immediate families but not to use a derogatory words against them because of politics.
Madam Awuah stressed that, the incumbent MP has been helping them in a diverse ways to improve their daily lives yet they don’t know Mr Agyapong’s brother who wants to represent them in Parliament.
She stressed that, Mr. Agyapong should come out and apologize to the Association else he should forget their votes even if the unfortunate happens and the brother wins the NPP primaries.
Madam Florence Awuah lamented that, operating a chop or selling of TZ is not a useless work as Mr Kennedy Agyapong wants them to believe but a work that holds them on their feet to educate their wards and cater for the family.
