This petition is reportedly an agenda with some Ghanaian journalists behind it.
According to rumors, it started to make waves on social media after Kennedy Agyapong threatened to deal with one Joy News presenter called Mr Asare Donkor.
Mr Agyapong, was reported to have verbally abused and threatened to attack Mr Asare Donkor, “for the journalistic work that the latter undertook during the recent shootings and killing incident at Ejura” on Net 2 TV, a television station owned by the MP on July 9.
The politician was filmed on a live programme which was widely published on social media platforms, stating that, “if he [Mr Agyapong] were President, he would have ensured that Erastus Asare Donkor is beaten mercilessly.”
Following his threat to the journalist, the company filed a lawsuit against the Assin Central MP and he also vowed to deal with them in court.
Well, to the surprise of Thedistin.com, an online petition is spreading like wildfire as some journalist are asking their fans to sign to get Kennedy Agyapong banned from entering U.K.
The petition has video evidences where Kennedy Agyapong threatened the journalist and as at now, over 2,500 Ghanaians have added their signatures – click here see pictures and how some Ghanaians are reacting to the petition.
