Nana Kwabena Ofori II, the Chief of Assin Akroso has vowed to beat Hon. Kennedy Agyapong like his child.
The Chief was angered by an allegation leveled against him by the firebrand legislator.
Hon. Kennedy Agyapong accused the chief of taking gifts from former President Mahama to the detriment of development projects in the town.
The Assin Central MP made the accusation over the weekend during the campaign launch of NPP MP of the Asene Manso Akroso Constituency, Hon. Kwame Aboagye.
“We have chiefs, who are involved in politics and they have the right to decide which candidate they want and I don’t have a problem with that but if the chief here has a problem with the NPP campaigning here, ask yourselves: does he feed any of you?”
“Is he the one paying for the Free SHS for your children?” – Ken Agyapong asked.
He declared: “We are not afraid of anything”, adding: “If you’re a chief, bring development to your people…”
In his view, “anyone who tells you to vote for the NDC doesn’t wish you well…”
“In 2016, Mr Mahama was giving chiefs Land Cruisers and the chief here had one. They shared Land Cruisers but they didn’t win…”
Nana Kwabena Ofori II hasn’t taken the accusation lightly and has dared Hon. Kennedy Agyapong to a fight.
The chief says he will beat the firebrand MP like his own child.
“I’m a chief, so, I welcome every party and speak good about them. So, if any party has been here and I welcomed them, it doesn’t mean I’m a member of that party”, he said.
According to him, “since Nana Akufo-Addo won the presidency, have they brought him to visit me before? Since 2012, has Akufo-Addo visited me before?”
“So, if another party has visited me, shouldn’t I welcome them?” Kennedy Agyapong is shallow-minded”, the chief said, asserting: “All he does is to insult women”. I dare that they put us together on one platform and I’ll beat him like my child,” – the Chief stressed
