‘I’ve resolved to set up a church’ – Ken Agyapong

Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong

Member of Parliament for Assin Central in the Central Region, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong says he has decided to probably set up a church which he thinks will have lot of members.

According to him, whatever he says that is taken in bad faith by most Ghanaians comes to pass, making him ‘feel like a prophet.’

Referring to the recent issues surrounding the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST), Mr Agyapong said: “I’ve talked talked talked and talked. Now I’ve resolved to probably set up a church and I’m sure I’ll get a lot of members. Because, whatever I’ll say that Ghanaians will take it in bad faith comes to pass.”

Speaking on Hello FM’s Akoko Abon morning show on Saturday, he said during the election season in 2016, he talked about issues at BOST and the level of corruption there, which he has since not stopped to mention whenever he gets the opportunity.

Mr Agyapong says, previously, most of the ‘nasty’ things he spoke about concerning BOST and Ghana Cocoa Board [COCOBOD] were covered up by the then government. And they ignored him because he was not a member of the government.

According to him, when the New Patriotic Party [NPP] came to power, they realised that the problem at BOST and COCOBOD is bigger than what he thought.

The Assin Central MP raised the issue of contaminated oil, and asked why BOST as a government agency, only experiences contaminated oil but not any other private company.

He said referring to particular quantity of oil as contaminated is a ploy to sell it cheaper to some particular companies that are owned by some National Democratic Congress [NDC] members ‘at the expense of the country.’

According to Mr Agyapong, ‘they should arrest 50% of some individuals at BOST, especially those at the production and distribution section. Most of them should be arrested.’

Those workforce at BOST are those who engage in these corrupt practices, however, also being paid millions of dollars, he said.

He further indicated that his discussions with some private oil company owners have shown that there is nothing like contaminated oil, ‘so why does it happen at BOST alone?’

“They do that to tag the product as bad, and set it aside to sell it at a cheaper price to NDC companies,” he stated.
