It make appearance that the contentions leaked tape of the meeting of opposition National Democratic Congress’ (NDC’s) National Communication Team leaked to Kennedy Agyapong by an NDC insider cost the Assin Central MP GH¢5000.
The meeting which lasted more than 2 hours was recorded and sold to the Member to Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong two weeks ago, MyNewsGh.com learnt, and he paid cash for it.
A staff of Oman FM close to Kenneth Agyapong, eldest son of Kennedy Agyapong who is Manager of Kencity Media told MyNewsGh.com that although the identity of the NDC mole was known only to Kennedy Agyapong and some two officials at the Jubilee House, he knows Kennedy Agyapong paid GH¢ 5000 cash for the secret audio.This was in the aftermath of the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency when Kennedy Agyapong was approached by the mole with the information requesting for Ghc20,000 cash. To convince the NPP official to know how serious the tape is, the unknown mole sent short teasers of the audio capturing Ofosu-Ampofo to Kennedy Agyapong via whatsapp, before finally the full recording was released. It is unclear how they settled on GH¢ 5000 from the GH¢ 20,000 demand.
The details of the 2 hour 30 minutes tape which was first played on Oman FM and has generated controversy has since attracted wide condemnation conditional on the establishment of the true identity of the voice. Many say it is Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, NDC National Chairman.
In the tape, alleged top officials of the NDC communication team, including members of Parliament were heard plotting on how to smear the Akufo-Addo government in general and Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia in a special way.
The recording was done by someone who is trusted know to be a part of the Sammy Gyamfi led National Communication team.
The Honourable Kennedy Agyapong revealed last week on Oman FM when 8 minutes of the tape was played that he usually pays handsomely for people who bring him information.
Some of the actors allegedly captured on the tape include Haruna Iddrisu, Alfred Ogbamey, Sammy Gyamfi, Ofosu-Ampofo among other big ‘fishes’ in the NDC.
Mr Ofosu-Ampofo explains circumstances leading to his party’s withdrawal from the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election marred by violence. He also reveals the party’s plan for the 2020 elections. The National Chairman also okays the politics of insults targeting the Peace Council Chairman and the EC Boss.
The audio has put the party up hold by Ghanaians pressure following concerns about the disestablishing activities of party militias. The audio raises questions about the commitment of the two main political parties, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and opposition NDC to disband their militias.
