The late Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Emmanuel Kyeremateng Agyarko was bitter for being ignored by his own party, the national Organizer of the opposition NDC, Joshua Hamidu Akamba has said.
According to him, the late legislator told him he was very bitter and angry with President Akufo-Addo who sidelined him and later sacked his brother from his government.
Joshua Akamba claimed the late Agyarko believes the removal of his brother, then Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko from office was a setup; a situation he says has made Mr. Kyeremateng Agyarko bitter until his death.
“The man is bitter. You know I have spoken to him a couple of times and he told me one of his sisters is an ambassador and his brother have been given appointment but his case is different and because of that he [Agyarko] is bitter” he said.
Mr. Akamba disclosed this on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen Thursday.
Asked why he is now making such damming revelations, he said “ I believe that when a person dies, we prepare tributes for the deceased and so that is my tribute to him,” he said.
He also vowed that the NDC will take up the Ayawaso West Wuogon Seat in a by-election.
“We will go there and take our seat. Don’t forget that seat used to be an NDC seat and so we will go there and take the seat. If the president has taken Mr. Agyarko for granted, then we will go and take our seat back” he vowed.
