The maverick Member of Parliament (MP) for the Assin Central constituency, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong has firmly defended the embattled Ghana Maritime Authority (GMA) Director General, Kwame Owusu.

In assessing Mr. Kwame Owusu’s reaction to conflict of interest allegations leveled against him, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong said his posturing is the best so far, insisting he would have said worst things if he was in the shoes of the GMA boss.

Kennedy Agyapong, who described Kwame Owusu as his good friend said, reports suggesting he had misappropriated state funds to build a hotel in his hometown in less than two years of assuming office, were false.

“Kwame Owusu is a very good friend of mine and he tells me everything. Why have journalists in this country refused to do due diligence before accusing him of misappropriating funds,” he queried Monday on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme.

The outspoken MP also insists that the hotel in which the end-of-year party was organized does not belong to Mr. Owusu.

“The party was held at the Ghana Maritime premises. There is nothing like a conflict of interest anywhere so you guys should shut up. In fact, if I were Kwame, I would have said worst things. This is just nonsense; excuse me but this is just stupid,” he stated.

Kennedy Agyapong also rubbished claims Mr. Owusu’s outfit spent a whopping GH¢10,652 on food for eight people at the Luxe Suites Hotel for one night.

According to the Assin Central MP, the GH¢10,652 was the total amount spent on several meetings including the management and stakeholder meetings on maritime security fees and charges at the head office.
