The Member of Parliament for Assin North in the Central Region, Mr Kennedy Agyapong has made a bold assertion that except for former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, he is richer than every American politician.
Infuriated by the response he got from his daughter, Mr. Agyapong spilled the beans about how much he is really worth.
“My daughter, after first degree I asked her to come and work for me for about a year before she goes back to do her masters and she said oh I want to work at the Senator’s office. I asked which Senator and she said New York Senator the black guy, I forgot his name. I said look girl, I sit in Africa and send 52,000 dollars a year to pay for your school fees, you are going to work for this Senator or Mayor, do you know how much they are worth? And I can assure you with the exception of Bloomberg, I think I am richer than any politician in America”.
When pushed by the host to give a figure on his monetary wealth, the outspoken MP laughed and said he would have done it in the past but due to some of the criticism he got when he recently disclosed that he owns 108 house he will withhold those details.
