Controversial New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyepong claims to have enough corruption evidence more than state security agencies.
“I have information even more than the BNI and other state security agencies because of my affability to the people, he boasted.
“I know all the NDC people with properties in Dubai. Although I’m against corruption, I don’t find a problem with a Ghanaian who has stolen and invest here in Ghana than those who steal and go and keep it in US, Europe and Dubai or wherever,” the maverick politician alleged.
According to the outspoken lawmaker who is not enthused about the slow pace in prosecuting corrupt officials in the erstwhile Mahama administration, the evidence available to him will stand a test of time to put them into jail.
“A lot of the politicians who steal don’t use the money for anything, but save them at the bank”, the lawmaker in an interview disclosed to host Nana Aba Anamoah on the GHOne TV’s State of Affairs.
The NPP firebrand who has been at the forefront of exposing corruption averred he is not totally against the act but will prefer to have corrupt persons investing within the country to those stashing the loot in foreign bank accounts.
“And given the opportunity to this government, some of them if they make the money they’ll go and put it there. So I’m not blaming only NDC. It’s our mindset,” the NPP lawmaker believes.
