The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central in the Central Region, Kennedy Agyapong, has bemoaned the neglect of unemployed New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters by the party and its leadership.

“Our unemployed supporters are angry with the party and its leadership because they feel neglected and the party is alleged to be giving jobs to elements of the National Democratic Congress (NDC),” he said.
Mr Agyapong indicated that the party grassroots who laboured to get victory feel used and dumped and flayed the government for creating opportunities for NDC members to ‘enjoy’ while the rank and file of the NPP who toiled to bring the party to government suffer.

He lamented that the policies of the government is the reason why the party grassroots are angry, what are you telling me today, NPP members who have suffered eight years under NDC,” alleging that “we ‘used’ some military personnel for key operations in the 2016 elections but the said personnel have been dumped and are being victimized.

“Our policies are the reason members of the party are angry with us, we are not taking care of the party supporters but engaging in ‘eye service’, we are all Ghanaians, people have enjoyed for 8 years because they belong to a particular party.

“Your people have sacrificed with the hope that because you are in power they will also get some work to do, you are still giving jobs to NDC against your own people, look at the military, they say I should not say it but I will say it, come and kill me, in order not to lose the 2020 elections the party and leadership should stop the ‘crimes’ of government against its grassroots which must be a wakeup call and addressed,” Mr Agyapong warned. –mynewsgh.com
