Kennedy Agyapong, a Ghanaian politician and millionaire entrepreneur who just announced his intention to run for his party’s flag bearer, has begun making promises about his future if Ghanaians elect him to lead them.
The veteran and firebrand of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has stated unequivocally that he will never accept a salary as President of Ghana.
“When I become President, I won’t draw salaries from the state…no, I don’t need a salary from the state because excuse me to say, I wouldn’t be able to pay ‘chop money’ or take good care of myself when I withdraw salaries from the state…,” he said recently on Net 2 TV.
Furthermore, if he is elected president of Ghana in the near future, the anti-corruption campaigner has declared that he will establish presidential scholarships for Ghanaian youth.
“I will establish what we will call a presidential scholarship with my salary. I mean my salary will be used to fund the scholarship for the poor but needy in society, especially in the rural areas…,” he added.
