Mahama must be given 36 lashes to sit up – Ken Agyapong

President John Mahama


Outspoken NPP Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North in the Central Region, Kennedy Agyapong says President John Mahama has failed to meet all the targets set for him by Ghanaians, his employers.

According to him, the dwindling economy, the never-ending power and water crisis, labour agitations are all attestations that the President is a “failure”.

Kennedy Agyapong was speaking on Asempa FM's Ekosii Sen programme Friday.

He added that such "gargantuan failure" on the part of the Mahama-Amissah-Arthur administration, gives credence to suggestions that politicians are corrupt.

The NPP MP said it is now an established fact that politicians in the country only "fight" for power just to loot and share monies with their cronies to the detriment of Ghanaians.

"Politicians just like the police are killing this country. We are really corrupt," he stressed.

The Assin North MP noted that the only way to keep politicians on their toes is for God to give "all of us severe lashes".

"I wish God invites all politicians, first person President Mahama and give him 36 lashes, the next his vice [Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur] 30 lashes, Ministers 24 and MPs 18 lashes to keep us on our toes".

The NPP MP says he feels very guilty considering how politicians have contributed to Ghana’s under-development.

He stated that not everyone can become a good leader but “if you find yourself in a leadership position, you must ensure everyone is satisfied”.

Kennedy Agyapong said until Ghanaians put pressure on government to do the right things, they will continue to live in abject poverty.
