Kennedy Agyapong, the candidate for flagbearer, apparently said nothing improper with relation to his commonsense statement, according to attorney Kwabena Boateng, the second vice chairman of the ruling NPP in the Ejisu constituency.
The Assin North member of parliament, who is running for the role of the ruling party’s flagbearer, promised voters during his campaign tour that if he were to become president, he would govern the nation with common sense.
“Big English and degrees that don’t advance our nation anyplace are plenty for us. I’m here to tell you that Assin Dompem’s common sense will allow us to rule Ghana.
“Now that the lawyers and other defendants have been tried, it is time to bring a businessman to trial as well. Do not allow someone to instill dread in you. To make our nation run smoothly, we shall govern it with common sense.
The NPP chairman responded to Ken Agyapong’s statement on Oyerepa Breakfast Time by saying, “What Ken said is the truth.”
“I concur with Kennedy Agyapong. Nobody will accuse Ken of making a mistaken statement. Nobody should challenge him if he asserts that common sense is what this country needs to be governed. We do, in fact, require common sense.
“Ken didn’t say that because of Bawumia, I think,” I said. We need common sense in many aspects of daily life. Nobody has ever succeeded in life without using common sense, so how much more governance? So, in my opinion, he didn’t say anything inappropriate. He explained to show presenter Kwesi Parker-Wilson.
