General News of Monday, 5 November 2018
Member of Parliament for the Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has described as baseless calls for the Director General of Ghana Maritime Authority (GMA) to be dismissed following allegations of financial malfeasance.
“You really want my good friend Kwame Owusu to be sacked because of this peanut. Kwame Owusu will still eat when he is removed from office. The guy has brains. He won’t go and sweep your house when Akufo-Addo sacks him.
“A man who has moved from negative to positive and you think he will be affected [by these allegations], hell no,” Ken said on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen Monday.
Mr Owusu made headlines Tuesday after he held a news conference to rebut accusations that he had misappropriated taxpayers’ money and also put himself in a conflict of interest position, following his organization’s decision to hold an end-of-year party with state funds in a hotel he owns.
But the controversial MP warned Ghanaians against tarnishing the hard-earned reputation of a man who he believes has brought massive and positive change to the authority.
