A leading communications member of the opposition NDC, Chief Biney
has advised the ruling NPP to as a matter of urgency distance itself from
Kennedy Agyapong’s comments on investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

The Assin South Legislator on live TV stated that he has ordered the
security capos at the Kotoka International Airport to prevent Anas from
travelling. He further described Anas as corrupt, evil and an extortionist for employing crude methods to bait people and record them as evidence of
corruption.

Chief Biney who is highly tipped to win the Deputy National Organizer
slot expressed his dissatisfaction with NPP’s failure to disassociate itself
from the damning comments which has attracted nationwide
condemnation. According to him, the NPP’s inability to distance itself
suggests and communicates total support for the MP’s threatening
comments.

Explaining futher, Chief Biney reminded the NPP that Ken Agyapong’s
comments sharply contradicts the NPP’s decision to employ the ANAS
PRINCIPLE to fight corruption in a statement issued by Nana Akomea the
then Director of Communications on February 7, 2011. He later cited
comments by then Candidate Akufo-Addo during the live broadcast of
IEA’s Presidential Encounter in Tamale on October 30, 2012 in which he
promised to adopt the ANAS PRINCIPLE to combat corruption.

Chief Biney maintained that the party’s disciplinary committee ought to
invite the legislator and call him to order or formally disassociate the party from the incessant attacks on Anas.

The much-anticipated documentary, titled “Number 12,” is expected to be
premiered in Accra on June 6 and is said to have captured many leading
football officials, Mr Nyantakyi included, engaging in acts that confirm a
long-held suspicion of massive corruption in Ghana football.

At the height of his leadership as Ghana Football Association President, Mr
Nyantakyi was the darling of the football community, revered and celebrated by many for his achievements. He superintended over a golden era as Ghana’s Black Stars made it three times successively to FIFA World Cup tournaments, a World Youth Cup, among other achievements.
