-Gets appointed Ghana Gas Board Chairman
A viral video seen by Whatsup News captures the Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong was captured on video confirming that President Akufo Addo had given him a direct green light to go after critical media voices.
He admitted in the recordings that it was the support of the President that enabled him to block undercover investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas from undertaking a particular investigation against the administration.
The foul-mouthed Assin Central MP revealed how he was emboldened by the “full support” of President Akufo-Addo himself to launch attacks on journalists, including Anas, whose crew had traced a corrupt mafia to the Jubilee House and had reportedly earmarked some US$ 8 million bribe to be shared to President Akufo Addo, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia and some selected cabinet ministers.
It is believed that the investigations that Agyapong boasted he succeeded in blocking was the “Number 12” documentary.
The infamous Number 12 documentary aired a few years ago thoroughly embarrassed the Akufo Addo administration and in what was believed to be backdoor “gymnastics”, only one part of the two-part documentary was aired for the public.
However, when the first part of the documentary was aired, Ken Agyapong went ballistic on Anas and his lead investigator in the documentary, Ahmed Hussein Suale.
Ken Agyapong threatened the life of Suale and even placed a bounty on his head. A few weeks afterwards, Suale was assassinated in a brutal operation by two men on motorbikes.
The assailants shot him three times at point-blank range in ambush close to his house.
A few days ago, Ken Agyapong launched similar threats on Erastus Asare Donkor, a journalist from the Multimedia Group who had captured live execution of three street protestors at Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
Ejura town had gone gaga when a social media activist highlighting the economic plight of the community, Mohammed “Kaaka”Ibrahim was bludgeoned to death by thugs aligned to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
They claimed his activism was making the Akufo Addo administration “unpopular” and had warned him to stop the social media posts of his activism or face the dire consequences. Kaaka was killed a few days after the threat to his life.
Ken Agyapong also referenced Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, the Managing Editor of the New Crusading Guide in the viral video recording capturing him revealing “dirty secrets” of the Akufo Addo administration.
He described Baako as an opportunist who has been left in the cold by the Jubilee House, despite being seen practically as a lapdog for the regime.
Meanwhile, despite all his uncouth and abrasive behaviour, Ken Agyapong has been a sacred cow of a sort, enjoying almost boundless immunity from his potentially harmful actions.
In what confirms the statements made in the viral video and speculations of being used by the Jubilee House, President Akufo Addo today officially appointed the Assin Central Member of Parliament, as the new Board Chairman of the Ghana Gas Company Limited.
This is despite the fact that he is facing Parliament’s privileges committee for his unruly behaviour.
