The Spokesperson of the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Benjamin Gyewu-Appiah popularly known as Benghazi has descended heavily on the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Women's Organiser, Hannah Bissiw for demanding the arrest and prosecution of his boss for allegedly threatening the murdered investigative journalist, Ahmed Suale-Hussien of Tiger PI Eye.
The Speaker of Parliament in January this year referred Mr. Agyapong to the privileges committee after inciting violence against the undercover journalist.
Police believe Mr Hussein-Suale was murdered for the role he played in investigating corruption in Ghana football.
But, five months after his assassination, the police are yet to bring closure to the matter.
Addressing the media at the NDC headquarters, National Women's Organiser of NDC, Hannah Bissiw said the action of the legislator led to the sudden demise of the investigative journalist.
She opined that Kennedy Agyapong is not above the law and should be arrested and prosecuted under sections 74 and 75 of the Criminal Offenses Act of Ghana, 1960 (Act 29), for threatening Ahmed Suale with harm and death publicly in the media
“The killers of Ahmed Suale and all who played a role in his murder, especially Hon. Kennedy Agyapong, be arrested and brought to book” she opined.
Hannah Bissiw bemoaned how ill now the perpetrator of the crime has not been brought to book.
“The women’s wing of the NDC is deeply worried about the failure of the Akufo-Addo government to resolve the gruesome murder of an investigative journalist, Ahmed Suale. We wonder why till date, a prominent member of the NPP, Kennedy Agyapong, who threatened Ahmed with harm and death before his untimely murder, is still walking the streets of Ghana as a free man” she stated.
But in a sharp rebuttal, the Spokesperson to Kennedy Agyapong who is also the President of Loyalists of Kennedy Agyapong (LOKA), Benghazi informed Hannah Bissiw that his boss (Kennedy Agyapong) will never respond to her because she doesn't deserve his boss attention.
"Kennedy Agyapong is very busy working for Mother Ghana, so therefore, he will not be distracted by such unproductive statement by someone with a pseudo-credibility", he chided.
He, therefore, described the comment by Hannah Bissiw as "useless" adding that she is the most incompetent Women's Organiser ever the NDC has had.
"This comment is not only inutile and useless, it also depicts how incompetent and desperate the Hannah Bissiw has become. When other women organizers of the New Patriotic party from branch to the national level were commemorating the MOTHER'S DAY celebration, coupled with some philanthropical giving's, she rather used her time not do same but for attention seeking politics with no future", he opined.
He urged Ghanaians not to give room for Hannah Bissiw to operate because she is an attention seeker
