The Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong, has stated that he is ready to face the Privileges Committee of Parliament for absenting himself from the House.
According to him, he has evidence of medical reports to prove his innocence when appears before the Committee.
His reactions come after the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, hauled him [Kennedy Agyapong], and the MP for Dome Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo, as well as the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey to the Privileges Committee.
Adwoa Safo and Kennedy Agyapong have absented themselves from Parliament for a while and Henry Quartey also absented himself for more than 15 days without permission.
Kennedy Agyapong speaking on the development on Accra-based Happy FM, said “I was supposed to go back to America for review on the 27th of January, because of E-Levy and Ghana First, I have sacrificed it and I am here.”
The maverick MP said “I have read the law it affects a person who has absented themselves from Parliament for fifteen straight days. Not the number of absenteeism across a term. If so, a lot of MPs will be sacked.
“I am not worried, you know how any person who stands by the truth is persecuted by the system? So, I am not worried, let them invite me, I will respect them and go there accordingly and give them proof,” he added.
