The court has dismissed the appeal by the MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, seeking redress on the decision that he pays an amount of GHC 130,000 to Kweku Baako.

The lawmaker has reportedly filed an application for the court to prevent Baako from demanding such amount as compensation.

However, he has been reordered to pay that amount to the journalist as compensation after he was sued for defamation.

Agyapong was reported to have made bad comments about Baako, Editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper.

The MP also dared him to go to court if he was unhappy with his comments.

Fortunately for Baako, the court ruled in his favour, and is yet to receive the GHC 130,000 as compensation.

Earlier, the court also ruled that the MP should apologize to Baako three times within a period of three months on all the platforms he ever used to defame the journalist.

Meanwhile, Agyapong has been on a mission to expose some Ghanaian pastors he said are fake.

He descended heavily on Obinim, Nigel Gaisie, and even Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams.

Agyapong also leaked the names of some pastors he claimed called to beg him not to expose them.
