Controversial Member of Parliament for Assin Central Honourable Kennedy Agyapong is accusing Mrs Lordina Mahama, wife of former President Mahama, and one Agyekum who he said is a former deputy Local Government Minister and in some financial dealings at Fortiz through a bank it has majority shares.
In a tape MYNEWSGH.com has obtained, the loud-mouthed MP said he has forwarded all the names of those involved to the Minister of National Security, Albert Kan Dapaah for action, adding that the names involved are from both NPP and NDC.
He was particularly stressing on the fact that the big names behind the institution who knew about what was going on were powerful old boys of Prempeh College.
He said Lordina Mahama took huge sums of monies there to be kept and invested for her through a crony, one Agyekum who was a Deputy Local Government Minister; revealing he had all the emails of the transactions.
According to Ken Agyapong, when NDC lost the 2016 election, Mrs Lordina Mahama sent Agyekum to retrieve the money but there was a problem, leading to Agyekum creating a scene right at the Fortiz-owned bank.
“I have all the emails of the transaction. I will deal with them. Whoever they are. This Bank, (he pointed to the document) Lordina, she and my in-law Agyekum… I and his cousin have two children. Deputy Minister.. that’s where they were keeping the money. Yes. Deputy Minister local government. Yes. They give the money to the guys to do trading for them. When they (NDC) lost and they went to the guy at the bank to collect their money, there were issues on the money. Agyekum was standing there openly making noise. He wasn’t shy. Yes at the Bank. I have the documents here”. He alleged.
He expressed shock that NPP was not going after these deals when there are documents to show.
“We have done investigations and we still sit down for NDC to make noise. I don’t understand.”, he said.
“On the Fortiz, they all went to Prempeh College. They are cronies from Prempeh College, I will expose them. They are both NPP and NDC.” He said.
“I will go and give the information to Kan Dapaah. The owners of Fortiz, if he decides one of his master’s name is there and he will remove it, I will come and say it. We have to defend this country. What is going on is bad.
