Ken Agyapong’s comment inexcusable, indefensible – Akoto Ampaw
There appears to be some division among members of
the National Media Commission (NMC) on what
position to adopt about the alleged treasonable
comments by the Member of Parliament for Assin
North, Kennedy Agyapong.
The Executive Secretary of the Commission, George
Sarpong, Tuesday refused to specifically condemn
the comments widely denounced by political parties
and civil society organizations.
There have been calls for the NMC to do same, but
in an interview with Joy News Mr. Sarpong refers
to an NMC statement that adopts a general approach
and says nothing about Kennedy Agyepong’s
But, a member of the commission and renowned
lawyer, Akoto Ampaw holds a different view.
He believes the comments by Kennedy Agyepong
deserve specific and outright condemnation.
He told Joy News: “Personally speaking, I think
his comments are completely inexcusable and
“And even if he had reasons to be provoked, those
reasons do not in anyway justify the kind of
inflammatory language he used, to the extent that
that statement incites people to violence, it
ought to be condemned.
