- Music Producer, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson [Bulldog] calls for parliament to sanction MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong.
- Bulldog wants the MP punished for trading unprintable and unpalatable insults with radio presenter, Afia Schwarzenegger.
- According to Asiamah Hanson, Mr. Agyapong is gradually bringing Ghana’s parliament into disrepute by his actions and utterances.
- Afia Schwarzenegger was the first to use abusive words on Mr.Agyapong for allegedly insulting the family of President Mahama and the MP responded in equal measure.
Music Producer Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson [Bulldog] is calling on the Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament to call Member of Parliament for Assin North in the Central Region, Kennedy Agyapong.
The MP has been trading insults on public radio and social media with radio presenter, Afia Schwarzenegger.
Afia on Okay FM’s mid-morning show, “Ye Wo Krom” questioned why Mr. Agyapong would insult siblings of the president if his governance does not meet his expectation.
“I’m not saying Mahama is the best or worst president ever in the country, but if you want to attack him, attack his governance but don’t accuse his mother and brother of selling drugs”.
She went on to also allege and suggest that Agyapong was a drug dealer as no one knows the specific job he does.
This did not go down well with the MP, who responded on his radio station, Oman FM's "Boiling Point" programme Thursday evening.

The Assin North MP in a deadly rebuttal also accused Afia of sleeping around and smoking marijuana. He also advised the controversial presenter to practice good personal hygiene.
But in a Facebook post addressed to Ghana’s Parliament and Speaker, Bulldog expressed concern about the attitude and behavior of the MP.
Bulldog said “dishonourable” Kennedy Agyapong is dragging Parliament’s image in the mud. He is therefore pleading with the Speaker of Parliament, Edward Doe Adjaho to punish the MP.
“For hauling your HONOURABLE house’s reputation into the stinking Ghanaian gutters by his recent DISHONOURABLE public outburst on tax payers he’s suppose to be working for.
“…as a tax paying citizen and a son of our beloved motherland, I pray the house will subpoena the then HONOURABLE member of parliament for Assin Central now DISHONOURABLE Kennedy Agyapong, to your brain trust… for hauling your HONOURABLE house’s reputation into the stinking Ghanaian gutters by his recent DISHONOURABLE public outburst on tax payers he’s suppose to be working for,” Bulldog opined.

Below is his full statement:
AN HONOURABLE APPEAL TO THE HONOURABLE SPEAKER OF PARLIAMENT
HONOURABLE Speaker of parliament, I am a passport holder of this great nation and reside in Adabraka, I am a young man in my late thirties, a stakeholder in the Ghanaian entertainment industry and a contributor to the GDP of this great land.
In my field of work, I hoist the flag of mother Ghana high and will continue to do so, so help me God. Not too long ago, your HONOURABLE disciplinary council summoned a member of my fraternity before it, in the name of Blakk Rasta, about demeaning and pejorative comments he passed against the HONOURABLE house and it’s membership on daytime radio.
I was part of a sect that thought you did right by the books to tame his disrespectful and shameful tongue to restore some decency in the entertainment industry and the general public as a whole.
It’s in one’s prayer that your HONOURABLE house has in its bill of rights, disciplinary actions against members that bring the name of the house to DISHONOUR.
It’s my hope that, at the swear-in ceremony members’ allegiance to the HONOURABLE house was spelt out explicitly in the swear-in piece.
I am not in an HONOURABLE position to tell your HONOURABLE house how to go about it’s HONOURABLE functions. But as a tax paying citizen and a son of our beloved motherland, I pray the house will subpoena the then HONOURABLE member of parliament for Assin Central now DISHONOURABLE Kennedy Agyapong, to your brain trust.
For hauling your HONOURABLE house’s reputation into the stinking Ghanaian gutters by his recent DISHONOURABLE public outburst on tax payers he’s suppose to be working for.
As a statesman, and an all-important office occupant, no amount of egging on should get an egghead like him to descend this low.
HONOURABLE Speaker please don’t get me wrong, we all have rights in this country and the DISHONOURABLE member of the legislative assembly is no exception. Maybe if he was a commoner of this great nation of ours his exclamations could be forgivable.
Regrettably for the Ghanaian tariff payer he’s a DISHONOURABLE member of parliament who is payed to discharge his public services HONOURABLY.
Again, I am not in an HONOURABLE position to ask your HONOUR to gag members of parliament, but humbly plead that they are reminded to speak with seemliness to hold your house in HONOUR. Action must be taken to set a precedent for members and aspiring members.
If candidates are not morally and ethically fit for the high position they’ve been elected to occupy, it calls into query the HONOURABILITY of the entire HONOURABLE assembly.
If action is not taken, soon the public and the rest of the world may look down on your HONOURABLE house DISHONOURABLY.
Parliament is the most high office of any nation and as such its occupants must conduct themselves in accordance with what the office is instituted for. We can’t have DISHONOURABLES in HONOURABLE positions.
Thank you mister HONOURABLE SPEAKER. I know he’s human and liable to err, so I took time to find synonyms to the word: HONOURABLE, to jog the memory of the DISHONOURABLE member of the legislative assembly. an honorable man: honest, moral, ethical, principled, righteous, right-minded; decent, respectable, estimable, virtuous, good, upstanding, upright, worthy, noble, fair, just, truthful, trustworthy, law-abiding, reliable, reputable, creditable, dependable.
WE LOOK UP TO YOU AS ROLE MODELS AND SHALL IMITATE YOU.
– Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson aka Bulldog
