BOST Rot: Sometimes I miss Anas and his undercover work - Ken Agyapong admits
Following alleged rot festering on at the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) Company Limited, maverick politician Kennedy Agyapong has admitted missing the services of investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The Assin Central lawmaker is in court after being sued GH¢25 million by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas for defamation.
Prior to the premiere of Anas’ latest work in June this year, the lawmaker made several damning allegations against the astute Journalist saying he is a home wrecker (wife snatcher), corrupt and needs to be hanged.
But appearing on Adom TV’s Badwam on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 while discussing alleged wrongful payments at BOST, he said “What is going on there makes me miss Anas. Investigations I have conducted there about the wrongful payments is more than Anas”, he told the host as MyNewsGh.com monitored.
He said it will be over his dead body further payments will be made to the demanding companies insisting it is not right and fraudulent and must be resisted by those in authority.
Meanwhile, a group calling itself the Center for Public Interest & Democratic Peace (CPIDP) has called for proper investigations into on-going media expose’ of the alleged scandalous transactions between the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST) and Springfield Energy Company in the matter of BOST’s indebtedness to Springfield Energy.
This according to the Mr. Alex Abaka Jacobs, Executive Director of the group, the matter is of great interest and concern to Centre for Public Interest and Democratic Peace, because there are countless occasions where President Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo had indicated his readiness to fight corruption in the country and indeed the sacking of the former Energy Minister points to that zeal and commitment, which we applauded so much.
He is therefore at a loss as to why President Akufo-Addo has kept silent on the recent expose’ of the high magnitude of corruption perpetuated the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST
“At this moment every well-meaning Ghanaian and civil society organizations built on integrity and national interest should be worried about the current development in the country because if whistleblowers risk to bring such fraudulent and scandalous transaction out and it turned out to be kept under the carpet, eventually they will be discouraged from exposing future corrupt practices and in the end it is the nation and the ordinary citizens that suffer the naked consequence of under-development and poverty,” he lamented.
