Founding President of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe has finally responded to a pile of insults heaped on him by maverick politician and Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong describing him as a fart-laden wind.
The IMANI boss who says he has been inundated with calls following the attacks of the controversial politician and businessman, says he is unfazed because he has done that to several persons including his colleague MPs, Police, Ewes, Akans, Dagombas, Gas, Anas Aremeyaw Anas , Judges, President even his own father and mother.
He indicates that he has no time to respond to fart-laden winds from the outspoken lawmaker who during a recent appearance on TV described him with unprintable adjectives.
“Why are people calling me about Ken Agyapong’s attack on my person? Hasn’t he attacked his own MPs, Police, Ewes, Akans, Dagombas, Gas, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Judges, President even his own father and mother? I really don’t have the time to respond to fart-laden winds”, he posted on his Facebook wall.
Mr Kennedy Agyapong is on record to have described Franklin Cudjoe as a zombie economist indicating that he uses his position in the pursuit of a clandestine agenda.
“Franklin is a zombie economist who is only using his NGO to take money from people from abroad. How well do you even know these MPs that you speak badly about? If you have an NGO, do us a favour by using that means to educate Ghanaians instead of bashing parliamentarians,” he said.
The IMANI boss’ crime was calling for more transparency in the creation of new districts and regions explaining it was not the antidote to widespread poverty but allocation and prudent use of resources were the best ways to go.
But the lawmaker descended on him on an Accra-based radio station accused him of begging people from abroad to satisfy himself and dared him to tell Ghanaians where he got those figures and infantile ideas to support his claim.
