Kwesi Nyantakyi (left) was captured by Anas in the latest expose[/caption] I have monitored to my utmost amazement, in the wake of the Anas expose how certain persons have decided to drag innocent persons into the matter. Others have also for the purposes of propaganda managed to add their twists to the story, they managed to use social media to import their own stories into the expose and used same to attack the personalities of innocent persons who were never even mentioned in the video. Typical example is the “president is in my pocket” bit that certain unscrupulous persons have mischievously managed to import into the media narrative. I am glad however that Kweku Baako has come out to correct this erroneous misrepresentation and misinformation. Even more worrying is the case of our Deputy Chief of Staff, Mr. Francis Asenso-Boakye, an innocent person that certain elements within and without the confines of the party and government have sworn to destroy using malicious fabrications, outright lies, subterfuge and naked concoctions just to sully his reputation. Kweku Baako has again stated this on record, that Asenso-Boakye was never mentioned in the tape. As one of the closest men around the president, and the president’s political assistant, Asenso-Boakye is always around the president whether in Ghana or abroad, something that has made him a target of people’s envy and evil machinations. Such things are always anticipated. It is however amazing how certain elements have consistently tried, albeit without any success to dent his image and reputation by deliberately dragging him into frivolous, petty and pestiferous controversies. Even when the matter has nothing to do with Asenso-Boakye, these detractors always find a way of dragging his name into it. I remember quite vividly, how when the president nominated someone for the position of the EPA boss and the Public Services Commission refused to endorse this candidate’s nomination and the president subsequently had to withdraw the appointment. We were again made to believe it was Asenso-Boakye who was behind it and that he so badly wanted the position for his brother. He was vilified and crucified for something he knew next to nothing about just because he is close to the president. Later it emerged that, PSC obviously refused to endorse that nomination due to the candidate’s unsatisfactory and below par performance when he met the commission. If Asenso-Boakye truly wanted that position for his brother, why would he wait for someone to be nominated? Can Asenso-Boakye alone force his will on the entire membership of the commission? Till date, nobody has been able to show or tell us which of Asenso-Boakye’s brothers is heading the EPA. Some of the things Asenso-Boakye has been accused of are astonishing in their defiance of logic, reason and common sense. ANAS TAPE, EXCERPTS THAT NEVER WERE AND MATTERS ARISING: It is therefore not surprising that in the wake of the Anas video, these unscrupulous persons through the help of their social media agents have cunningly found a way of dragging Mr. Asenso-Boakye’s name into it and I’ve seen how A Plus, a very bitter person (been bitter since Asenso humbly turned down his request for a favour) who seems to have lost his senses since he humiliated himself in that pitiful attempt to tag Messrs. Asenso-Boakye and Abu Jinapor as corrupt, an attempt that woefully backfired. I have seen how this character has gone on a sarcasm laced philippics, with very reckless insinuations that Nyantakyi could’ve paid one guy whose name came up, making indirect references to Asenso-Boakye. I thought A Plus would’ve gotten over this after his apology in October of 2017, for describing Asenso-Boakye and Abu Jinapor as corrupt and even more so, one would think he’d stop these childish antics after the humiliation he subjected himself to when he appeared on that edition of The Super Morning Show with Kojo Yankson. I pray A Plus finds himself a cure, hatred is such a terrible thing to consume a man’s heart. I have also seen Afia Schwarzenegger make references to same, why do we even need to worry our heads over non-existent stories being propagated by persons lacking the most basic of scruples and who fall short of the most rudimental tenets of morality. [caption id="attachment_38488" align="aligncenter" width="635"] Asenso-Boakye[/caption] For those in the NDC spreading this, that is pretty much understandable, they’ve been programmed to see a cat and say tiger and to see a goat and insist a cow. Such is the expertise of established propagandists. ASENSO-BOAKYE WAS NOT MENTIONED IN THE ANAS VIDEO: Beyond these deviltry of malicious character assassins who always want to ride on the hard-won reputation of honorable men to be heard and fuel their relevance, one thing that is worth noting is the fact that, NOWHERE IN THE ANAS TAPE was Asenso-Boakye’s name mentioned. Not by Nyantakyi, not by any other person captured in the video. Nowhere in the discussions by the persons in the video was Asenso’s name ever mentioned, and no particular reference, directly or indirectly was made to him in that video. A fact that has already be affirmed by Abdul Malik Kweku-Baako. The rather desperate attempt by internal and external saboteurs and character assassins must be ignored and treated with the utmost of contempt. FACTS OF THE CASE:
- It was only in an email from Nyantakyi to his investor friends that he stated that he was going to talk to Asenso to arrange a meeting between them and the president because of Asenso role as the president’s assistant.
- It is also worth noting, that Asenso did not even arrange this meeting, the meeting never came on and in fact, these are just Nyantakyi‘s words to his friends in an email.
