Former Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko has disclosed that he has ceased talking to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo because he betrayed him.

According to Boakye Agyarko, he trusted the President but he was betrayed along the way.

On the economy, Mr. Agyarko said government must tell Ghanaians the truth and stop blaming everything on the Russia-Ukraine war.

He strongly believes that the economy is not in a good shape though he admitted that external factors contributed to the state of the economy.

“I trusted him but I don’t have a relationship with the president. People marry for 30 years and get divorce, don’t they? I’ve known president since (19)76. There is no hatred but I’ve learnt to move on and go my separate way because at the end pf the day that is what life is.

 

“Me, I will never let anybody bring me so low to hate him because I don’t hate anybody but there comes a time when circumstances make it that you’ve to go your way, you’ve to move on,” Mr. Agyarko said these when speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii sen show on Monday.

Talking about his relieve from office as a minister, he mentioned that “i was called by the Chief of Staff that the President said he can’t work with me anymore.”

According to him, he will turn down any appointment to serve in the Akufo-Addo government again since he is currently focused on his presidential ambition.

 

He said he is working to become the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and to eventually become president of Ghana, hence would not want any other thing to distract him.

Boakye Agyarko believes he is deserving of being Ghana’s next president and will commit fully to it, although many people have advised him against it.

He noted that he has moved on, having served in the Akufo-Addo government with all his might.

“I am pursuing my own presidential ambition, for which a lot of people kicked against right from the beginning. I will not abandon it to go and do any other thing. I am focused on what I have to do for myself and my nation. That is my focus. If you serve with all your strength and the person doesn’t appreciate it, you move on. If I cannot give something a hundred percent, I will not do it. I’m I not deserving of being the flagbearer of the NPP?” the 66-year-old quizzed.
