Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has revealed how late Vice President Amissah-Arthur confided in him before his death.

According to Kennedy Agyapong, Amissah Arthur was unhappy about the 'loot and share' attitude by some officials of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) while they were in power.

"He once confided in me when I raised an issue he discussed with me concerning the current opposition party while in London. He revealed to me how uncomfortable he was about how some greedy NDC officials loved to steal from the national coffers,” Kennedy Agyapong disclosed.

He described the Amissah-Arthur as a genuine politician who unlike the erstwhile President John Mahama who he said, is not "politically astute."

However, he stated that he had no issues with Mahama bacause he is fond of him hence has a good relationship with the Mahama family.

“He’s more like a brother to me because his wife used to call me ‘husband’”, he added.
