The Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP) Hon. Kennedy Agyapong in an interview on Metro TV sighted by seeks to say that some parents deliberately named their children after him with the intent of shedding their responsibility on him he said this when he was asked about the mindset Ghanaians should have anytime they are approaching an MP.He however, said it is not wrong to help people at all but some people take undue advantage of his kindness.

He expressed his disappointment on the way some MPs promise the electorates heaven when it is not feasible without government. As a result some MPs encouraged irresponsible behaviour of some parents where their parental responsibilities are accepted by them because fear of losing next elections.It is high time MPs speak the truth. He would rather encourage those irresponsible parents to work.


“Some parents are so irresponsible you go and sleep with a woman, have good sex with her, make babies then you foolishly bring your responsibility to me that you’ve named the child after me so I should take care of him. “They come to my house, [from] as far as Sefwi, when they come, they say ‘oh I named my child after you’ then I say OK thank you; they will stand there till they get something…they will be tormenting your life; standing there from maybe 10 AM till about 6 PM waiting for you to give them something before leaving your house…” Kennedy Agyapong added.

He also said that the government cannot satisfy everybody therefore “we need to conscientize the people to stop thinking that the government has to give them everything; it won’t help us.”
