He further said, “When I look at the opportunities in Savannah Region and the five Northern Regions Abu should take advantage of it and build businesses in these regions”.
“I know he (Hon Abu Jinapor) is a very smart MP but I’m going to guide him because when it comes to business I’m very smart..so I will guide him to take advantage of the arable lands in the five Northern Regions so he can create industries”; Kennedy Agyapong added.
“When i came to the 5 Northern Regions, I realised God has gifted Northerners a lot of natural resources but I don’t understand why the North is mentioned people think they are poor…they are not poor, they only need hood leaders for businesses to create opportunities for these regions”.
Kennedy Agyapong further said religious politics will note help the NPP and encouraged delegates to vote for someone that can change their life.
According to him some it is sad that with all the land and natural resources of of Northern Ghana that change the life of the people, what are we doing.
He said some will come and say; “Oh.. I’m from the North so vote for me; I’m a a Muslim so vote for me..so coming from the North and with this many positions and opportunities didn’t he know he could have built factories here for the Youth to do.
“So how do you feel that you are from Northern Ghana and you are a politician given big positions but your people still go to Southern Ghana to do menial jobs like head potters.. are you not ashamed of yourself”.
