Mr. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, a well-known candidate for the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer post, has expressed his displeasure with the way the government is handling the local currency.

On July 16, Mr. Agyapong expressed his displeasure with the devaluation of the Cedi during a campaign stop in Kintampo East. He disclosed that during the course of five months, from March to August 2022, the value of his $40 million in Cedi equivalent had fallen to $16 million.

Mr. Agyapong avoided naming specific individuals, but he made a reference to Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who is the head of Ghana’s economic management team and a potential NPP flagbearer. Kennedy

Mr. Agyapong observed that it was strange to see an economic manager ask the International Monetary Fund for financial assistance while continuing to identify as a “strategist.”

During his speech, Mr. Agyapong emphasized the need of running an ethical campaign. He promised to respond to any criticism leveled at him and highlighted the value of sensible leadership in leading the nation. Kennedy

Agyapong, a lawmaker from Assin Central, advised his rivals running for flagbearer to conduct a fair and open campaign. He advised people to be careful with their words and promised to respond to every accusation brought against him.

Mr. Agyapong claimed that in comparison to his rivals, he would be a more successful steward of the economy when showcasing his economic management skills to party delegates.

He emphasized his successful enterprises, which he claimed employed over 7,000 people each month, as proof of his capacity to help lower the nation’s unemployment rate.
