Former General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, has demanded answers from Ghana’s parliament on whether a contract for cleaning the legislative house has indeed been awarded to a Chinese company.
The aspiring presidential candidate stated that doing so would be an insult and unfortunate given that we have local businesses capable of doing the job.
He made these remarks during a recent interview on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm’s Frontline.
According to Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, such contracts are awarded to Ghanaian businesses to protect and stabilise the economy.
The young politician stated that we must keep calm and carry out the necessary actions to save the country money.
“I’ve heard that even the parliament is cleaned by a Chinese company.” I hope that isn’t the case. But, if that is the case, it is not the best. These tasks should be performed by Ghanaians.
We must prioritise Ghana and implement a system that will enable the country to save money.
He also emphasised the importance of having a good maintenance culture to protect our investments in Ghana.
