- The Anas latest documentary suggests the Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong was given control of the Ministry of Transport as a reward
- Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi alleges in the exposé
President of the Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi has alleged that government rewarded Kennedy Agyapong with the Transport Ministry.
According to him, the Assin Central MP was a major financier of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the 2016 elections and so was given control of the Ministry of Transport as a reward.
The GFA boss made these utterances in Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ explosive piece which is titled "Number 12".
The investigative journalist premiered his much-anticipated exposé on Wednesday, as thousands of Ghanaians made it to the Accra International Conference Centre to watch firsthand.
The exposé captured 77 Ghanaian referees and 14 top GFA officials for engaging in various acts of corruption.
However, one of the scenes that came as a shock to many was where Nyantakyi mentioned that government rewarded Kennedy Agyapong with the Transport Ministry and that the Transport Minister, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, was the Assin Central MP’s pick.
The GFA boss told the undercover journalists, posed as investors, that Agyapong is very powerful in the NPP, suggesting they involve him in their plans to make things easy.
“The guy who is there [at the Transport Ministry], Asiamah; that is his [Kennedy Agyapong’s] small boy,” Kwesi Nyantakyi was captured telling the supposed investors.
He added: “There is a man called Kennedy Agyapong. He is an MP. He is one of the biggest financiers of the NPP. He is very loud. He owns OMAN FM and NET2 TV. He is criticising the government, his own government, yes. He wants to control everything.”
“…because of the ways he put into the campaign, nobody can call him to order. They will be begging him when he is insulting them. So Karbo was saying that after the president and the vice president, we should involve him [Kennedy Agyapong],”
He said this was based on information from the Deputy Minister for Roads and Highways, Anthony Karbo.
“So, he [Karbo] mentioned that they wanted to make him [Kennedy Agyapong] a minister because of the contribution he made to the campaign. [Kennedy Agyapong] says he cannot be a minister because he is not a disciplined person to be a minister.But they [the government] gave him a ministry. They created a ministry and gave it to him and he nominated somebody as the minister. Yes, Ministry of Transport,” Nyantakyi stated.
His comments have raised suspicions of Kennedy Agyapong, especially after the lawmaker’s series of attacks on Anas in recent weeks.
The legislator has accused the undercover journalist of being “evil” and “corrupt”, adding he will expose him in the coming days.
