Kennedy Agyapong, a member of parliament for Assin Central, stated his displeasure with the Volta Region’s residents for continually supporting the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Kennedy Agyapong blasted the area for not making the most of its vast resources when he submitted his nomination papers to run for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearership at the party headquarters in Accra.
Agyapong visited 180 constituencies while running for office and came to the conclusion that the nation’s lawmakers had neglected their responsibilities. He stressed the unrealized potential of the Volta Region, highlighting its fertile fields, rivers, and mineral resources. He questioned why the region, which has seen little development, continues to support the NDC.
I want Ghanaians to give me the opportunity and challenge me, but I will make sure I turn the fortunes of this country around, Agyapong said. “We are endowed with so many minerals; there are a lot of opportunities in this country, but everywhere you go, especially in Volta Region, the resources there are untapped.

He emphasized the Volta Region’s benefits by pointing out its arable lands and close proximity to the airport and seaport, which provide it a distinct advantage over other regions. Agyapong envisioned the construction of agro-processing facilities and the agricultural cultivation of millions of acres.
“The Volta Region has an advantage over every other region in this country because of its close proximity to the airport and the seaport. When I went there, I observed the Afadjato mountain, caves, water features like the Oti River and Lake Volta, the sea itself, and arable terrain that could be farmed on millions of acres to produce agro-processing enterprises, according to Agyapong.
He advocated a shift in thinking to make Ghana a better place, expressing his concern for Ghanaians’ mentality. Agyapong emphasized the necessity for Ghanaians to be patriotic and fight for their country while citing the discipline displayed by foreigners who travel to Ghana in order to make money.
In addition, if Agyapong is chosen to lead the NPP and serve as the country’s president, he emphasized the significance of media engagement in spreading knowledge of patriotism.
As the seventh candidate to submit his nomination paperwork, Agyapong joins a crowded field of notable candidates, including former trades minister Alan Kyerematen, vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, former general secretary Kwabena Agyepong, former energy minister Boakye Agyarko, former regional integration minister Dr. Konadu Apraku, former agriculture minister Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, and Kojo Poku.
