Popular Ghanaian actor and comedian Kofi Adu, also known as Agya Koo, has spoken out about how he sacrificed for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the 2016 and 2020 national elections, despite the fact that the road in his region is in disrepair.
He stated that he risked his life at the peak COVID-19 time in 2020 to collect other people to campaign fiercely for the NPP, but he is being smothered by dust owing to the bad condition of the road in his neighborhood.
“When people are enjoying and you are not part of it’s sad. I also stay at Hill Top but go and look at where the prominent people are staying, there are lands that nothing has been built on yet their roads have asphalt.
“But some of us living in some areas, go and look at the nature of our roads and how dust is killing us, just go and look at it. For this government to come to power I was part. The places that I went to during the 2016 elections. At the height of COVID-19 in 2020, I and my boys were risking our lives to campaign for the party,” he said in an interview with Angel FM.
Agya Koo also asked NPP delegates to vote for Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Agyapong, in the NPP primaries because he has a plan to address the country’s unemployment issue.
“So if the party members know how to speak then they should vote for Kennedy Agyapong, I’m pleading with the delegates. When the money is offered to you by an aspirant, take it but if you want the future of Ghana to be bright or not it depends on the Nov 4 primaries.
“So I would plead with delegates to vote for Kennedy Agyapong for him to create employment opportunities for the people,” he added.
November 4, 2023, is the scheduled date of the NPP primaries.
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice president, Kennedy Agyapong, the MP for Assin Central, Dr. Owusu Akoto Afriyie, the former minister of agriculture, and former MP for Mampong Francis Addai-Nimoh are the four candidates running for president.
