New Patriotic Party (NPP) firebrand, Kennedy Agyapong has taken his party to the cleaners for being ungrateful to media houses under his Kencity Media empire despite the sacrifices made by these outlets to the fortunes of the party.He observed that lately, Oman Fm and NET 2 TV are not even invited to important functions citing instances he has been to such events where some media houses were present without his, MyNewsGh.com reports.
The Assin Central lawmaker is angry that they are also denied advertisement which will help the companies run in order to enable them continue to provide the needed services that inure to the benefit of the NPP.
“Wow, what ungratefulness. When you talk they say your boss is rich…even the ocean it still rains inside. Give them adverts to run their company. Even if you go to programmes…a lot of programmes I have attended I notice NET 2 is not always invited. We have already been living our lives before now. They will go round and still return to us”, he disclosed on Oman FM monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
This is not the first time the maverick politician is complaining about ill-treatment being meted out to his media houses he owns.
Mr Agyapong last year vowed to teach the NPP a lesson when it begins processes for its “People’s Assembly” and need media coverage which he has always offered subsidiaries of Kencity Media for.
He said there is a deliberate scheme to starve his businesses of funds because some people are saying he has a presidential ambition for which they are sabotaging him, and to him, such claims are very funny.
The tell-it-as-it-is said he will throw out the party when they knock on his media empire’s doors in 2020 because they are now using other media companies to run ads. He was particularly saddened about the treatment being meted out to Ash FM in Kumasi.
“Last week I was in Kumasi, Ashh FM. Regional minister and Wontumi, me I will mention names…” Ken Agyapong began in his usual style.
“I know they will start things…. what’s the name of that thing …people’s assembly… yes. I am watching to see if they will invite us to cover live. They will see. The Adverts me I know. I know. Today they have their preferred radio stations they have been working with. I am waiting for them. 2020, I will walk them out!” He fumed.
“I am saying I will personally walk them out. One deputy minister who they spoke to said ‘as for you people Ken will look after you.’ Look at that” Ken said in anger.
