The New Patriotic Party (NPP) firebrand Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyapong, has urged the government and ruling party to publicly apologize for the unsavoury comments about the NPP Presidential candidate Nana Akufo Addo, otherwise he’ll be forced to say worst things about President Mills.

He said if the NDC does not seize the incessant character assassination of Nana Akufo Addo he has volumes of incriminating evidence that will show that President Mills is not as clean and morally upright as the NDC faithful have portrayed him to Ghanaians.

Hon. Kennedy Agyepong last week apologized to President John Evans Attah Mills on radio for calling him a thief while addressing supporters and sympathizers of the NPP at the party’s Greater Accra Region rally dubbed “gargantuan” rally, at James Town.

He made that statement when he was commenting on the controversial Woyome judgment debt and said the President was jail bound.

Speaking on Okay FM on Monday 27th February 2012, Hon. Kennedy Agyepong stated that he still stands by the apology rendered to President Mills, but was quick to add that he made the apology on radio only after he was told by the presenter of the programme that the ruling party was coming out with an apology to Nana Akufo Addo for all the unpleasant remarks about him.

He said days after he rendered that apology he’s yet to hear a single official of government or ruling party publicly apologizing to Nana Akufo Addo.

Hon. Kennedy Agyepong noted that though he is against the politics of insults he will not stop at giving the NDC an equal measure of ‘strong words’ if they do not desist from hurling insults at the NPP flag bearer.
