Anas exposé: NPP not against Anas; Ken Agyapong is a lone ranger – Owusu Bempah
The Communications Manager of the Ghana Gas Company, Ernest Owusu Bempah has kicked against the ranting by Kennedy Agyapong over Anas’s latest investigative piece.
He said the Assin Central MP's concerns and allegations levelled against the ace investigator is not the position of the ruling New Patriotic Party [NPP].
“Kennedy Agyapong is an independent person and certainly has the right to express himself about any topic of importance, since we still practice democracy. It is not his first time of speaking controversially on a matter of public interest,” he said.
He said the Assin Central MP's views aired certainly cannot be taken as the voice of the ruling political party in Ghana.
Speaking on UTV’s ‘Adekye Nsroma’ programme, Ernest Owusu Bempah cited that government has not in any form abhorred Anas or his works, the reason behind the call on the office of the CID to investigate Kwesi Nyantakyi.
“I am stating it clear that government communicators including those at the presidency have got nothing against Anas Aremeyaw Anas or his investigative works,” he stressed.
According to him it is Kennedy Agyapong who has issues with Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his methodology, therefore some critics of his [Anas Aremeyaw Anas] exposés should not hide behind him in scoring cheap political points.
He said nobody knows him better than he does because he was his classmate at GIJ.
“None of the pictures showed so far on social media depicts him,” he stated.
“. . His style of investigative journalism is one of the best that professors of the field are now trying to discover. In fact when you go into his style of researching it is gradually becoming a phenomenon that needs to be looked at, since it is the type benefiting society and of public interest,” Owusu Bempah noted.
