A day after misunderstandings erupted in Ghana’s Parliament, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong has broken his silence.
During the fracas on Thursday, January 7, 2021, when Parliamentarians were voting for the next Speaker of Parliament, Mr Agyapong was captured sitting quietly.
He won the admiration of many Ghanaians when a photo of his composure went viral.
On the heels of this, the Assin Central MP has disclosed why he was quiet on the day.
“I didn’t want to destroy Akufo-Addo’s swearing-in that is why I sat down quietly and observed the NDC members.
“We [NPP] could have fought,” but it would have dragged and affected the swearing-in of MPs-Elect and eventually the President and his Vice-President’s swearing-in, that is why we from the NPP side decided to be quiet to let the NDC members have their way,” he said on Oman FM.
