As the drama unfolds in the Ghana Football Expose aired by the Tiger Eye Group which is led by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, section of the tape reveals the Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong was given control of the Ministry of Transport as a reward.
This is as a result of the vociderous MP’s campaign contributions to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) which was then to reward him for his hard work.
In the video dubbed Number 12, the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, discloses that Kennedy Agyapong pulls strings at the ministry and that the current Minster at the Transport Sector, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, was the Assin Central MP’s pick.
“The guy who is there [at the Transport Ministry], Asiamah; that is his [Kennedy Agyapong’s] small boy,” Kwesi Nyantakyi said.
According to him, 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.”
Kennedy Agyapong’s influence also compelled Kwesi Nyantakyi to list him as one of the people investors need to pay off to dominate Ghana.
In the documentary expose, the GFA Boss is seen telling undercover reporters that Kennedy Agyapong was a loose cannon and a stumbling block to their ambitions.
“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 criticizing 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],” Kwesi Nyantakyi told the undercover team.
It is unclear if Kennedy Agyapong knew about these claims, but his media tirades against Anas led some to believe he was panicking.
But the MP has been on the warpath against Anas describing him as corrupt and manipulative because of his methods.Hon Agyapong has insisted that Anas’ alleged act of corruption warrant the death sentence.
Anas’ expose, dubbed Number12, focuses on corruption in football and football administration.
