Politicians are the very persons who influence public discussion and the decision of voters in every election period.
In the midst of their presence in the political sphere, you dare not mess with some of them.
Check out this list of the 5 most “scary” politicians in Ghana today.
1. Kennedy Agyepong
Kennedy Agyepong is one of the most “no-nonsense” politicians in Ghana today. This was a man who made the allegation that the electoral commissioner, Charlotte Osei, got appointed in exchange for sexual favors.
In fact, he was also the politicians to get arrested after “declaring war” in Ghana on a local radio station.
In spite of all these controversies, Kennedy Agyapong somehow comes back stronger as ever.
2. Kojo Twum Baffuor
Former Chief Executive of the Ghana Free Zones Board remains one of the politicians in Ghana who is feared for saying it as it is.
Kojo Twum Baffuor has personally attacked various political opponents often through the clever use if insinuations and verbal attacks.
You dare not joke with him.
3. Ursula Owusu
She is a staunch feminist. A woman of stature who always uses her feminine wiles to influence public debates and discussions.
It will not be a surprise to see her appointed a minister in charge of children and gender affairs should her party, the New Patriotic Patriotic Party (NPP) wins the December polls.
4. Ama Benyiwa Doe
It was not for anything that Ghanaians starting asking where Ama Benyiwa Doe had gone to after disappearing from the public glare for years.
She is feared as the queen politician in Ghana today.
This is a firm personality who can even slap her colleague discussants to order in a heated political radio show. You dare not mess with her!
5. Dr. Tony Aidoo
He is one of the fearful politicians in Ghana today. Fearful to the extent that journalists even fear to poke a recorder to his lips.
This is an intellectual who criticised Archbishop Duncan Williams for praying for the Cedi and also termed Christians who speak in tongues as “mad”.
6. Sir John
Oh, yea! You can not mention politicians in Ghana without mentioning Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie.
Popularly known as “Sir John”, Mr. Afriyie has always been in the media for the wrong, funny and controversial reasons.
Most of his utterances are considered vile to the extent that he got summoned by the Supreme Court for unsavory comments made during the election petition.
