Maverick politician and the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Ken Agyapong has descended heavily on his own party saying God will judge it over the poor handling of the murder of former MP J.B Danquah Adu.
According to him, the party has done nothing to arrest the killers of their former member since coming to power because government officials are comfortable and enjoying their positions.
Joseph Boakye Danquah Adu who was a Ghanaian chartered accountant from a prominent political family was a member of the Parliament of Ghana for the New Patriotic Party between 2005 and 2009, and once more from 2013 until his death.
On 9th February 2016, he was stabbed dead in the early hours of the morning. Subsequently, the police arrested a man for the murder. The man, Daniel Asiedu, later confessed to killing the MP, in a struggle as he tried to rob him, and was charged with murder.
For the past four years, the case is still being prosecuted in court.
Commenting on J.B Danquah’s death on his [Ken Agyapong] Net 2 TV Wednesday, the outspoken MP stated that the handling of late Legislator’s death by the NPP since assuming power makes it not worth dying for the party.
“…that is the impression I get. That a whole NPP Member of Parliament has died, you’ve come to power you’ve not done anything about this man. I will not sit down for anybody to disgrace me in the name of NPP, I will not, I don’t even care if they sack me from the party. I will not sacrifice my life for anybody for disgrace. We are in power, a whole MP for our party has died, he died when we were in opposition and you cannot do any investigation now in power because you are all comfortable and enjoying your positons. God will judge all of us.”
Ken Agyapong appealed to the family of late J.B Danquah to fight for justice for their murdered relative.
