Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, a prospective flagbearer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said he is a millionaire and has enough money to take good care of himself till he dies.
The maverick Assin Central MP said he is very wealthy and will never be poor.
He made these remarks to delegates and party faithful in the Western Region.
He urged the delegates not to fear anyone in the NPP who is trying to whip them to support a particular candidate.
According to him, regional executives are being whipped, I have given 26 pickups to this region, and all the 10 contestants, which of them has donated even a car tyre to this region. Come on, you should wake up. Why are you afraid?
He asked why are you afraid, those whipping you into a certain line, which candidate can say they care for the Western Region than myself, Kennedy Agyapong?
“Today the land is ploughed, prepared, crop planted, it’s ripe and ready so everyone is enjoying. You play the fool and let’s land in opposition, you will see what will happen.
“At this stage in my life, I will never be poor till I die. I have home sense, I will never go hungry. I won’t let anyone scare you in this region, we are not afraid of anyone,” he stated.
11 members of the NPP have picked forms to contest in the party’s delegate congress scheduled for August 2023.
