Renowned political scientist at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Dr Kwasi Amakye Boateng has swiped at the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer hopeful Kennedy Ohene Agyapong over his presidential ambition.
The political scientist is of the view that Kennedy Agyapong lacks basic presidential skills and qualifications per Ghana’s cultural and moral standards, and hence, can never become the first gentleman of the land.
Dr Amakye Boateng was speaking on Akoma FM’s evening political show GhanAkoma Tuesday, March 14, 2023.
Whilst discussing the basic characteristics of personalities whom Ghanaians are to vote for, to transform Ghana into economic stability, he told host of the show, Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin that: “Kennedy Agyapong must forget about his presidential ambitions because he doesn’t qualify to be president. He has sent all his children to school and live outside and he is here campaigning to be president.
“Aside that he doesn’t have the moral responsibility to even lead this country because he is on record to have insulted women and expressed unprintable statements about some people including persons within his own government so that man is just not serious he should forget about his presidential ambitions.”
Dr Amakye Boateng further advised Ghanaians to bestow their trust in a candidate who has political will and a good working plan to turn the economic woes of the country finds itself around.
