The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong says his ‘people’ are preventing him from retiring from active politics.
Weighing in on the shock resignation of the immediate past Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection (Ms Otiko Afisa Djaba), Mr Agyapong explained that he wants to enjoy his retirement after turning 60 but his ‘people’ do not understand.
“Take me for instance, I want to leave and go and enjoy my retirement at age 60 but my people still don’t seem to understand,” Mr Agyapong said in an interview with Joy TV.
“Sometimes you get involved in certain things and you realise no, enough is enough. I have to move on. So, it is only in this country that people are afraid to resign, that is why I am not a minister.
“Because if the thing is not right I will say it. If it is against my superior and he says… Me I will resign. So, I don’t see anything wrong with it”.
