The maverick New Patriotic Party lawmaker made this claim in Bawku over the weekend when he went there to support the campaign launch of the NPP’s parliamentary candidate, Agbanwa Gabiana Abugri.
“God, why have you punished us like that? I mean, in this country we now listen to Asiedu Nketia, a man who could not even pay his electricity bills. He owes me $200. Up till now, he hasn’t paid. I don’t know if he’s going to pay me tomorrow,” he said.
He narrated, “We were in Parliament together when he came to me saying he could not pay his electricity bills and begged for money. I gave him two hundred dollars. If he does not want me to say anything further about the money, he should pay it back,” he said with frustration.
He went ahead to take a swipe at the NDC scribe who was spotted in feminine winter coat on a trip to Germany a couple of years ago “Politics is cheap in this country. If not, what was a villager doing in Germany in his wife’s winter coat?”
The crowd laughed as he continued to ‘detonate missiles’ from a 5-foot-high platform to the NDC and it’s members.
