Out of sheer desperation to frustrate ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team from premiering their latest expose, dubbed, “Number 12”, Member of Parliament for Assin North, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong seems to have opened his mouth rather too wide this time around, stepping on innocent toes.
As the nation remains in awe about the unimaginable but seemingly vain attacks on Anas and his team ahead of the filming of the video, by Hon. Agyapong, who until now touted himself as a corruption campaigner, seems to have bitten more than he can chew this time around.
Among his many unsubstantiated allegations geared at demonizing Anas, is the heatless claim that the world acclaimed journalist is in some amorous relations with the wife of the NPP Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, Mr. Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu.
Madam Ivy Heward-Mills has taken to her Facebook wall to respond to Hon. Kennedy Agyapong in a post sighted by MyNewsGH.com which reads;
“Good morning, fellow parents; I greet you from a place of joy, peace, love and empathy,” She wrote.
The way we raise our sons and daughters is vital. If we teach our children values like “respect for self and others,” if we build their self-esteem and mold their characters into children who will become men and women of dignity and integrity, we would have raised a polite society in which some of the traits we observe in people of authority today would be absent”.
She continued, “Unfortunately, we live in a society where brutal uncontrollable losers with low self-esteem who yearn for attention, kick and rub their feet in the air like sixteen-year-old tantrum-throwers who inevitably become certified world class bullies as adults. This sort of adults potentially ends up in our homes as spouses, in our workplaces as “leaders” or followers, in public places we visit, etc.”
“We find that we are surrounded by bullies; cowards with little or no self esteem who resort to abuse and the denigration of others to fuel their egos as they engage in their daily battles to desperately seek relevance in an overt never-ending “fight for power to shield their inadequacies by any means necessary” sort of facade; sometimes to deflect attention from facts they find abrasive. Woe betides us if these bullies have some money or influence!” Madam Ivy Heward-Mills added.
She adviced that, “When you encounter such bullies, especially when their pathetic selves decide to prey on you or use you as a weapon to fight lost causes, do not validate their existence or dignify them with any direct exchanges”.
“We live in a country with laws. The constitution never sleeps”. She wrote.
Let us mind how we raise our children after all, as William Wordsworth wrote in his 1807 poem “The Rainbow,” the “child is the father of the man.” Madam Ivy Heward-Mills emphasized.
She wished us all a beautiful fruitful day”
Adding. “And oh… God bless our homeland Ghana. ”
