“..I said a lot of things on that day, even this one, I was joking, I immediately took my seat after making those comments…yes, I was joking.

“There is an element of hypocrisy in this country. Nana Oye Lithur was orgainising and paying persons GHC20 to go and demonstrate against me because I have made comments against Charlotte Osei.

“I have nothing against Charlotte if and only if she would be fair to Ghanaians.”

  • Mr. Agyepong was speaking on Accra-based Adom fm.


Controversial MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyepong, has warned his critics not to dare him to expose the moral side of the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Charlotte Osei, else the information he will churn out will not be palatable to consume.

According to the NPP firebrand, he has gathered so much information about the EC boss that he wouldn’t want to go public again with his findings.

He stressed that what he has already shared with the public when he mounted the political platform in Atonsu, Kumasi, on Sunday, is a summary of his findings.

The maverick foul mouthed legislator during the campaign launch of the Asokwa MP, Patricia Appiagyei, launched a scathing attack on the EC boss alleging that she did not secure her position based on competence and merit.

Agyapong said some highly placed officials in government told Charolotte Osei to “bring your buttocks in exchange of EC Chair position”.

He also said; ‘if indeed Nana Addo (the NPP’s flagbearer) wins according to the pink sheets and Charlotte Osei dares to rig the elections by twisting our arms in favour of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), we will not allow it to happen in Ghana.”

His comments have received widespread condemnation by a cross section of the public, especially, from women groups and individuals who believe that the Assin Central MP has debased womanhood with his unfortunate utterance.

Some have questioned his basis for making such claims and have demanded that he substantiates his allegation or retract and apologize unreservedly.

But the MP responding to his critics on ‘Boiling Point’ on Accra based Oman FM, Tuesday, said he does not comment on things he has no knowledge or information about.

“I am not the kind of person who will be pushed by what they (his critics). They should bring it on. I won’t apologize today and I won’t apologize tomorrow. If they dare me, what I will release to the public will shock everyone”, he noted.

He added “Parliament failed in scrutinizing the woman (Charlotte Osei) well. They should have done a thorough background checks not only about her academic qualification but also her moral life”.
