- Agyapong has promised his team of lawyers will get the lawsuit against him dismissed
- He mentioned a rumour of how a team of journalists are working to malign him
The MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has bragged of his team of lawyers who can help him fight a lawsuit thrown at him. The MP has been sued for defamation by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
According to the journalist, certain pronouncements of Agyapong about him (Anas) amounted to maligning his character. Anas therefore wants a court of law to award him GHc25 million in damages.

But the Assin Central is defiant in his remarks about the lawsuit.
He said to Accra-based Asempa FM: “I have a team of lawyers and I got money. I have a number of lawyers and I am one myself”
The legislator proceeded to talk about how much the sum of GHc25 million meant to him:
“I am not afraid of him and I display cash. GH¢25 million I sit on that s**t. I will face him in court with my evidence. He denied the images that were making the rounds were not him so which ghost took me to court. I pity his lawyer”.
“I have every evidence to back the allegations I have made against him. I am ready for him in court. It is a way to prevent people to stop discussing about him. He is evil. Do you know how people are suffering because of him”.
Agyapong has dimissed the lawsuit as laughable. But he also mentioned that he is yet to be served.

Kennedy Agyapong concluded the interview by insinuating that a group of journalists are working together to make him unpopular. This tactic he said, involves a threat of leaking supposed dirty secrets about him.
Agyapong offered no evidence of this rumour.
