Market women chide Kennedy Agyapong over “tribal politics”

A representative of the identifiable groups at the Central Market, says Ghana is not for Akans nor is it for Northerners, it is for Ghanaians

Market women who ply their trade at the Kumasi Central Market have called out the member of Parliament for Assin Central in the Central Region and presidential candidate hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kennedy Agyapong over some recent “tribal politics” he is reported to have engaged while he was abroad.

In a video that has gone viral which was first aired by GH One TV, a representative of the “NPP Identifiable Groups at Kumasi Central Market, Kejeitia and Race Course,” is heard saying that Ghana is not for Akans nor for Northerners. Ghana, she says is for all Ghanaians and to that end, tribal politics has no place in the country.

“Kennedy Agyapong recently traveled abroad and we heard him speaking and claiming that Dr Mahamudu Bawumia (a Northern) is contesting and John Mahama (also a Northern) is contesting and Alban Bagbin (the current speaker of Parliament) is also nursing ambitions and that, it is time for Akans to rise up and insist that the NPP elects an Akan candidate”

“The NPP is not for Akans and it is not for Northerners. NPP is a “Ghana party” that looks carefully at the work and commitment of an individual before he or she is chosen to lead the party. It is on this basis that we the market women at the Central Market are rallying behind Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to lead the NPP” the Market woman said in her local language, Twi.

“We the market women at Central Market do not believe in insults. We believe in the power of our vote and our influence. We interact with many votes and we engage them in conversations, so we can convince up to ten (10) or more.

“This is the reason why we are calling on NPP delegates to elect Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as the party’s presidential candidate because he is the one all the people we are interacting with are calling for ahead of the December 2024 general elections” she added.
