Reinstate dismissed judges; Anas set them up - Ken Agyapong
The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has called on President Akufo-Addo to reinstate all the judges who were dismissed or interdicted following the exposé by Anas Aremeyaw Anas. According to the lawmaker, since the investigative journalist set them up to take bribes, they should be reinstated.
Speaking about Anas’ modus operandi on the television programme - Badwam on Adom TV on Tuesday, Mr Agyapong described Anas as a corrupt journalist who sets up people with the aim to destroy their reputation.
In his opinion, the judges incriminated in the expose’ should be reinstated because they were set up by Anas.
“I call on President Akufo-Addo to reinstate all the judges because the guy [Anas] enticed them. He used two boys, Ahmed and Rahman, to set the judges up. If you set people up, it is not investigative journalism ... and I’ll prove to the whole Ghana that the boy is so corrupt and wicked, evil from the things he has done, bringing institutions that have been built over the years, down for him to be rich.”
“From what I’ve seen and what I know, I’m going to show the pictures…” he said.
On 6 June 2018, Anas will premier his latest video dubbed ‘Number 12’, which captures corruption at the Ghana Football Association.
