A supporter of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Boakye Kyeremateng Agyarko, said he was pursuing his ambition to become president and would fail in any appointment in the government led by Akufo-Ado.
In an interview with Asempa FM, the former energy minister said that although many people advised him, he remained focused and did not want to be distracted by other issues.
I worked to be the flag bearer of a nuclear power plant and eventually became the President of Ghana so I don’t want any other problem to bother me because I am also working to be the next President of Ghana and I will commit and dedicate myself Really, even though many people have advised me not to do it,” he said.
Mr Agyarko also disclosed his relationship with President Akufo-Ado in relation to the events leading up to his removal from the current government.
In 2018, President Akufo-Ado removed Agyarko from his post as energy minister over the Africa and Middle East Energy Agreement (AMERI) scandal.
Regarding his current relationship with the President, Mr. Boakie said that although he had no objections to Nana Akufo-Ado, he was not negotiating with her.
He also said in an interview that his loyalty to Nana Akufo-Ado has blinded him in many ways in his quest to ensure that he [the President] meets the demands of the Ghanaian people and succeeds in his term.
However, in response to these comments, Ghanaian TV operator with reggae musician Black Rasta took his discontent with Mr Boakye Agyarko to heart.
According to the sizzling hot channel, he was disappointed and shocked that after all the years Mr Agarko had worked with Nana Akufo-Ado, he now realized that the latter didn’t deserve to die.
On his Black Pot show, watched by Ghanaguardian.com, Black Rasta said Boakie Agarko could never be accepted by the Ghanaian public as a serious person after hiding so much about Akufo-Ado’s “corrupt” government and now leaving their withdrawal shell behind. unnecessary disclosure. .
He says Ghanaians are not stupid if they trust someone who serves their master rather than their country.
“Who will elect you President?” Do you think we are idiots in this country? Boakye Agyarko, when all is well and you are having fun there, you see nothing wrong with Nana Akufo-Ado’s corrupt government. You have now been drawn into a highly controversial corruption deal, you are now saying your hands are clean and the Akufo-Ado government is indeed corrupt and dishonest, but because of your loyalty you have been blinded.
“Now I tell you, you are not a patriot. Their loyalty is to the individual, not to the whole country. How can a Minister of State come to power and be loyal to the President? His loyalty is not to the people of Ghana, his loyalty is not to the nation, his loyalty to one person and it’s the President. If the president falls, that means [Agarko’s] loyalty will decrease.
“Now you are telling us here that Akufo-Ado is corrupt, yes he is, but we don’t need to hear it from you. Where is your loyalty? What did you do to strengthen the country?” Boakie Agarko, I want to congratulate you for being honest, but I will not congratulate you, not even a cockroach will elect you President of this country,” said Black Rasta.
