Kennedy Agyapong made an official announcement on the cancellation of a significant talk show programme on his network, NET2 TV, citing the host’s insults directed towards Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia.
The host, Justice Kweku Annan, who is under fire, denies the charge and says the member of parliament for Assin Central threw him under the bus because it was convenient.
Annan has repeatedly stated that members of the presidency were engaged in Agyapong’s decision to fire him, some of which were posted on his personal YouTube website and most recently in an interview with KSM on Pan African Television.
He especially mentioned Nana Asante Bediatuo, the president’s secretary, and Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
He claimed that information he had gathered indicated that when Agyapong was in the US seeking medical attention, the President had sent him a video recording in which he is alleged to have criticised the Vice President and the administration.
I’ve asked him two, three, four questions, so he should come and reveal the true truth. First, is the President of the Republic aware of the action he took? Is he aware of all the commotion going on?
Second, while the president was in the country, did he provide him the video footage on which I stand accused? Would he also confirm that, while he was in the US, the president called him and inquired about what these “your guys at NET2” were doing to the government?
Agyapong was pushed to deny, and when he claimed he had no idea what was happening, the President ordered his wife to provide him a video. that Kweku was criticising the Bawumia, Nana Asante Bediatuo, the cabinet secretary, and other officials.
What did he do about that video after receiving it, then? Did he try to talk to me about this and interrogate me about it? No. The decision was made on the exact day he arrived at the airport, he insisted.
In addition, he continued, “I am now sensing that NPP will not want media to question them much or criticise them, which of course is synonymous with the political establishment in this country.” He clarified that he was not attacking the NPP.
