Back off! – Apaak barks at Ken Agyapong
Clement Apaak has descended heavily on Kennedy Agyapong, MP for Assin Central for his incessant attacks on investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The Member of Parliament for Builsa South, asserts that the work of Anas will forever be relevant whether Mr. Agyapong, and others who share his view like it or not.
He has consequently challenged Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to call Kennedy Agyapong, the MP for Assin Central if he [Bawumia] believes the work of Anas is “relevant” as he indicated recently.
The Vice President in a teaser shared on twitter and facebook by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas described the work of Anas as important because it is exposing corrupt people in the dark.
“What Anas is doing is very relevant. People should know that what they do in the dark can be exposed.
“Really, I would encourage him to continue doing what he does,’’ he said in his post.
It on this score, that Dr. Apaak challenged the vice president to call Mr Agyapong to order over his constant attacks on Anas. Mr. Agyapong has vowed to strip Anas naked over bribery and extortion claims he leveled against him.
According to Mr. Agyapong, Anas has amassed wealth through alleged corrupt deals and also his selective style of investigation in exposing people. Dr. Apaak is therefore calling on Dr. Bawumia to call Mr. Agyapong to order if he believes in what Anas is doing.
“Mr. VEEP, with due respect, if you believe the work Anas does is VERY relevant, then why are you not calling Ken Agyapong to order? Is he not the one leading the charge to smear Anas and draw his good work and service to Mother Ghana into disrepute?
“Is it not Ken who has publicly threatened Anas, told fibs about him and even posted fake pictures and information about him, and by so doing endangered his life like never before?
“And this is all that you say? And why has your party been silent on condemning Ken Agyapong for his needless, baseless, self serving attacks on Anas? Or is it that you and your NPP fear/dread Ken Agyapong? Mr. VEEP, it’s not enough to say the work Anas does is VERY relevant, we all know that, the world knows that.
“The work Anas does was relevant yesterday, is relevant today and will be relevant tomorrow. Tell Ken Agyapong to back off!,’’he fumed.
