Is it not baffling that Hon. Kennedy Agyapong, with his record, was selected by his caucus leadership in Parliament in consultation with his party leadership, which includes President Akufo-Addo, to chair the committee on Defence and Interior of Parliament?
Do you mean to tell me they didn’t know he was most unsuitable yet went ahead to assign him such a position?
The man insults and threatens the police top hierarchy, he insults and threatens the national security Minister for speaking against party vigilantes, he insults and threatens Judges and the judiciary, he boasts about the number of vigilantes he has gotten into the police, army and security agencies, he threatens media personnel and citizens with violence, he boasts about having no fear of the judiciary and security.
Yet, he is put in charge of the committee of Parliament which oversees security agencies; Defence and Interior, by President Akufo-Addo and his NPP.
What was the thinking, what is the motivation in appointing a man who has no respect for the law, lawless, to lead a committee that oversees law enforcement, internal and external security, law and order, and the protection of citizen rights?
Under the Kufour NPP Kennedy Agyapong couldn’t have gotten away with what he has under Akufo-Addo, let alone be rewarded as the chairman of a committee his conduct and record make him the most unsuitable person to chair.
Remember President Akufo-Addo is a lawyer and is said to be a human rights advocate. Something is just not right!
I remain a Citizen!
