Former Member of Parliament [MP] for Upper Denkyira West in the Central Region, Ben Ayeh has rubbished a suggestion made by Kennedy Agyapong on Anas Aremeyaw Anas' journalism style.

Member of Parliament for Assin Central in the Central Region, Kennedy Agyapong has suggested that undercover investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas be impeded on his approach of journalism and sent to court before he soon investigates people in their bedrooms.

Mr. Agyapong who is questioning the methods used by the award-winning undercover journalist also wants him prevented from premiering his latest expose on football and politics.

"Do you think Anas has the right to do what he is doing? Do you think so? We should be careful the way things are going. We kept quiet over the judges' issue. Now he is at GFA. Tomorrow it could be you or me. He could be in your bedroom whilst you are asleep with your wife," he warned.

He continued, "You want to premier this? We have to stop him or else, he will end up one-day recording you whilst you are asleep with your wife and premiere it in public".

Ben Ayeh who spoke to host Tweneboah Koduah on UTV’s ‘Adekye Nsroma’ programme totally disagreed with Kennedy Agyapong.

“I don’t agree with Kennedy Agyapong’s view that Anas should be stopped from his kind of investigations before he gets into our rooms. If Anas should come to my room and I am not involving myself in any corrupt conduct or practice against the state, he has nothing to report on,” he argued.

In addition he noted “from my point of view I will support every move taken by any responsible citizen to curb or stop corruption to save our nation. Also, I believe that a genuine person can never be forced to be tagged as corrupt”.

According to him corruption in our part of the world can only be reduced or curbed with how previous instances of corrupt practices were dealt with.
