Vote for Kennedy Agyapong to bring another Dubai to Africa -Lawyer Kusi

A Kumasi-based legal practitioner, William Kusi Esquire, has urged delegates to give the Assin Central Lawmaker, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, the nod to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The legal luminary explained that the firebrand MP was a self-made man, who had excelled in unprecedented job creation.

Kennedy Agyapong – NPP flagbearer hopeful

Lawyer Kusi, who is a leading member of Kennedy Agyapong’s legal and campaign teams, said the presidential aspirant was a man of his own class, and, therefore, had no match in the flagbearership race of the NPP.

According to the campaigner, save his idol, Dr. Bawumia, and Mr. Alan Kyerematen, all the other flagbearer aspirants were not relevant in the race.

Lawyer Kusi noted that having created jobs from the Starch factory at Amantin, a cold store, the funding of $6 million a Cardio Centre, a steel factory and the provision of 600 pickup vehicles for the party among others across the country, the presidential hopeful was even capable of employing Dr. Bawumia and Mr. Kyerematen to promote digitisation and trade policies to grow the economy.

He told The Chronicle in an interview that the delegates would give the nod to Kennedy Agyapong, because he was a visionary leader who eschewed tribalism and religious sectionalism and was capable of emerging the leader to break the 8 for the NPP.

He advised people in positions of trust not to use their influence and resources to intimidate the delegates at the expense of victory for the party.

He said the party foot soldiers would not tolerate any other candidate, because they wanted to see a change.

Lawyer Kusi emphasised that if Kennedy Agyapong emerged the winner of the impending flagbearer race, Ghana would experience a change, stressing that “we will see another Dubai in Africa.”

Lawyer Kusi, however, discounted alleged propaganda by the Dr. Bawumia campaign team that the NPP is an Akan party saying he (Dr. Bawumia) would not have been the running mate and subsequently the Vice President of an Akan party if the claim happened to be true.

He also dispelled the claim that Dr. Bawumia had stood for the NPP during the 2012 Election petition and must be credited and explained that he (Dr. Bawumia) was only a witness whose “You and l were not there” comments did not make any meaningful impact at the election petition hearing.

The lawyer also debunked seeming division among Christians and Muslims and cautioned the Vice President’s campaign team to avoid whipping tribal sentiments.
