Hiplife artiste K.K. Fosu has disclosed that he wants to alleviate the poverty of people in the Akuapem North constituency, thus, his ambition to run for the seat in this year’s general elections.
K.K. Fosu bemoaned the neglect of his hometown Mangoase by past MPs and governments.
Mangoase, he noted, is lagging behind in development; a situation he believes can be changed if he becomes a lawmaker for Akuapem North, Eastern Region.
Speaking to Nana Kwasi Asare on Class91.3FM’s ‘The Big show’ on Saturday, 11 January 2020, the musician was hopeful that he would be able to improve the livelihood of his people and build schools if he becomes part of the legislative body.
“I want to go to Parliament and help my poor people in my village and those out there; I mean the youth, especially. When people get to Parliament, they neglect their constituents. They don’t help them at all, so, we need to take the job into our hands now. The best way to build schools and roads is for me to go to Parliament”.
The ‘Sudwe’ hitmaker said he is very much prepared to be part of Ghana’s legislature, adding that he has been tutored in parliamentary proceedings.
“K.K Fosu and his team are very prepared. I will take people by surprise. We are working underground; people should watch out,” he said.
He revealed that his decision to ditch music and become a politician was borne out of interactions he and his colleague musicians had with Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in 2016 while he was the flag bearer of the then-opposition New Patriotic Party.
