Member of Parliament for the Assin Central constituency and Chairman of Parliament’s Defense and Interior Committee, Kennedy Akompreko Agyapong has been captured in a secret camera bragging about having the full support of the President to wage war against the media.
In a viral video posted by US based Ghanaian journalist Kevin Taylor, the loudmouth legislator is heard saying threats worked for him. According to him Anas thought he could wage a media blackout on him, but failed.
The avowed critic of Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Journalists critical of this government was captured on camera with an unknown man boldly saying that he has the full backing of President Akuffo-Addo. He affirmed it after the other man wanted clarification.
“Oh yeah I have the full support of the President”, he boldly said
President Akuffo-Addo’s regime have been tagged as one that is against free speech and freedom of the press which Government has vehemently opposed. Assassination of Ahmed Suale and attacks on the likes of Manasseh Azure Awuni gave energy to a regime that is against freedom of the press.
As recent as yesterday, the President reaffirmed his support for responsible journalism but it was all a hoax and stunt.
