The Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, has said he will not plead with the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong to stop criticising his protégé, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Mr Agyapong has launched a scathing attack on Anas’ modus operandi in his journalism practice after the investigative journalist released a documentary dubbed 'Number 12' that unearthed corruption within the Ghana Football Association.
According to the lawmaker, Anas does not practice investigative journalism but rather sets people up to destroy their hard-won reputation.
He further indicated that Anas was corrupt and that he will back his claims with evidence to “strip Anas naked”.
Subsequently, he is reported to have said that Mr Baako is going round begging key witnesses who are testifying against Anas.
However, speaking on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo on Wednesday 13 June 2018, Mr Baako said : “Under no circumstances will Kweku Baako or Anas plead with anybody to stop Kennedy Agyapong from doing what he intends to do…Under no circumstances, Ken Agyapong has the right to continue his crusade against Anas”.
The veteran journalist believes the MP “is entitled to pursue that crusade to its logical conclusion. Not a single one of us will beg him. It will not happen…me especially, I am not a coward and I don’t beg people to do me a favour because I am wrong.
“It will not happen, it just will not happen,” he emphasised.
Mr Baako further charged the MP to produce any evidence he has against him on Anas if indeed he has any proof of any criminal activity perpetuated by him or Anas.
"If you have something against me, put it out there and let’s deal with it," he insisted.
