My attention has been drawn to a video recording in which the Assin Central Member of Parliament, Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong is seen alleging corruption against Hon. Francis Asenso Boakye, the Minister for Works and Housing and Member of Parliament for Bantama.
The said video captures Hon. Agyapong in a campaign meeting with delegates of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Bantama constituency to solicit support for his brother in the upcoming parliamentary primary of the party.
Hon. Ken Agyapong, in the video, alleges that Hon. Asenso Boakye was demanding bribes from foreigners during his tenure as a Deputy Chief of Staff at the Jubilee House. He further claimed that if the delegates doubted his story, they could ask me, Kwabena Asante of Adom FM for confirmation, creating the impression that I knew about the story or had been a witness to the allegations he was leveling against the Hon. Asenso Boakye.
I would like to state categorically that, I have not met or spoken to Hon. Agyapong on anything relating to corruption involving Hon. Francis Asenso Boakye. As a matter of fact, I am not aware of any attempt by the former deputy Chief of Staff to solicit bribes from any foreigner(s).
The public is advised to disregard any such allegation from the Assin Central MP in which my name is mentioned.
