Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has said the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has no legitimacy to protest against what they perceive to be insecurity in the country.
Agyapong who is also Chairman of Parliament’s Defence and Interior Committee stressed that given the NDC’s past record in managing Ghana’s security, any other group or individual can complain about the state of security or lack of it except the NDC.
GhanaWeb monitored comments Agyapong made when he appeared on the July 6 edition of the Good Evening Ghana talk show.
“I’m surprised NDC ‘gat’ nerves to go on demonstration talking about security, they gat nerves; but you know, we have to tolerate them because it is about politics.
“Have they forgotten about themselves? NDC? I want every Ghanaian without political tag to say there is insecurity in our society but not NDC. The atrocities committed by these people in this country, they gat nerves,” a bewildered Agyapong added.
Asked whether he was not confusing the NDC with the Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC) regime from which the NDC was born, he said both regimes were equally bad in handling security.
