Central Regional Chairman of the Opposition National Democratic Congress, Allotey Jacobs says public perception will not stop him for taking any money presented to him as bribe from investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
According to Mr. Jacobs, he will gladly take the money and spend it, adding that he cares less of what the public thinks of him if he is captured on Anas’ tape taking the money.
Mr. Jacobs was contributing to discussions on Anas’ latest investigative piece on Badwam, Adom FM’s morning show hosted by Omanhene Kwabena Asante.
“If Anas brings his money, I will take, I don’t care what people say, I will take it and spend it, or if he likes he can bring goat and I will use it for pepper soup.” he said. Meanwhile New Patriotic Party (NPP) firebrand, Kennedy Agyapong has vowed to take on the investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Mr. Agyapong said he will start by publishing photos of properties of Anas he claims are dotted across the country.
Kennedy Agyapong who is also Assin Central Member of Parliament said he is taking such action because he hates Anas’ mode of operation which he thinks is “unfair.”
He said Anas baits his victims with money, records it secretly and when they fall for it, he publishes the recordings to tarnish their image.
“I am not against the investigations that he is doing, but the procedure is totally wrong; enticing people to speak so that he will go and blackmail them and make money, so he could build apartment houses in Dzorwulu and buy lands all over the country, is what I hate and God will not even bless him,” he said.
Kennedy Agyapong made the vow on Asempa FM’s Ekosii sen programme on Monday on the back of the much talked about yet-to-be premiered video which supposedly captures top officials within Ghana’s sports sector engaging in some shady deals.
