If Karbo isn't made minister in Nana's gov't I will agitate - Agyapong

Maverick politician and Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Ken Agyepong says he’ll make life uncomfortable for flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo if he refuses to make Deputy Communications Director of the party, Anthony Karbo, a minister when he (Akufo Addo) assumes power as President in 2017.

According to him, Anthony Karbo who’s also the Parliamentary Candidate for Lawra in the Upper West Region merits such a position for his dedicated service to the ‘Elephant family’ over the years.

Addressing a mammoth rally of NPP supporters during the launch of Anthony Karbo’s campaign for the upcoming December 7 parliamentary election, Ken Agyepong urged the constituents to vote massively for Anthony Karbo and Nana Akufo-Addo to develop Lawra and Ghana to an appreciable level and enhance the living conditions of Ghanaians.

“I assure if you vote for NPP MPs from Lawra and Nandom, they will both be made Ministers under an Akufo-Addo Presidency. When you voted for Sampson as MP, he was not given any position by President Mahama, the Regional Minister who is from this area was also dismissed. But if you look at Anthony Karbo, the kind of work he’s done for the NPP, I assure you, there’s no way that he’ll not be made a minister when Nana Akufo-Addo wins power. If Nana Akufo fails to make Karbo a minister when he becomes President, I will lead an agitation against him and will not make him comfortable. Be proud of yourselves that you have somebody like Karbo when he sits on radio and debates on behalf of the party, I say…that’s my man. You need a solid man to lead you.”

Anthony Karbo is contesting for the Lawra seat for the second time after he lost to the NDC’s Sampson Abu during the 2012 election.
