The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has said he is surprised at the reactions to his comments that the Electoral Commission Chair traded sex for her position.

According to the MP, the ‘noise’ made about his comment was unnecessary as he was only joking.

“I said a lot of things on that day, even this one, I was joking, I immediately took my seat after making those comments…yes, I was joking…,” he told Accra-based Adom FM.

The MP had recently on a campaign platform accused Mrs. Charlotte Osei of trading her body for her position.

The comments did not go down well with some sections of the public, including many civil society organisations and women groups.

The Minister of Gender Children and Social Protection subsequently requested an apology from Mr. Kennedy Agyepong on behalf of the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.

But Kennedy Agyapong believes the Gender Minister should be blamed what he calls the unnecessary reaction to his comment.

“There is an element of hypocrisy in this country. Nana Oye Lithur was organising and paying persons GHC20 to go and demonstrate against me because I have made comments against Charlotte Osei…,” he said.

“I have nothing against Charlotte if and only if she would be fair to Ghanaians…,” the legislator added.
