Blame Sir John and Asiedu Nketia for the politics of insults in Ghana – Kwabena Agyepong

Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, a civil engineer and a former general secretary for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), holds Asiedu Nketia responsible for the advent of politics based on insults in Ghana.

Insults have become a prominent feature of the political scene in Ghana. People take advantage of this digression to establish a reputation among the younger generation as being infamous and uncompromising to win their favour.

In most cases, individuals in this category are rewarded with jobs or granted a place at the head table.

However, when asked to comment on the transition away from politics based on problems to politics based on insults, Kwabena Agyepong said that he would blame Asiedu Nketia.


“I blame Asiedu Nketia and I have told him this. He started that thing.

“Ghanaians have a character, we respect elders so we should not insult in character…When he said a lineup of 17 thieves I called him and said Asiedu you are running down the whole political establishment in the eyes of Ghanaians. They are no thieves and they and you have no business doing that.

“The situation was compounded by my predecessor because he came and he was giving pound for pound. Sir John which I think he shouldn’t have and that was one of the motivations for me to become General Secretary to restore us back to our values and to elevate the discourse. This is a serious country of 35 million people so we have to elevate the discourse,” he said on Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV.
