It was not too clear where the argument was headed, but two notable names in Ghana politics – Kennedy Akompreko Agyapong, Assin Central Member of Parliament; and Ametor Quarmyne, veteran journalist, spoofed each other on live radio Tuesday afternoon that left the listener with ear ache.
With the two men throwing mud at each other and with the scantest regard for their listeners as they defended their respective political corners – Ken for the New Patriotic Party and Ametor for the National Democratic Congress, the skit dragged beyond permissible limits, both in degradation and duration.
While ‘debating’ various issues in the political square on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme, Ken Agyapong vowed he would have slapped Hassan Ayariga, flagbearer of the All Peoples Congress, for daring to question Nana Akufo-Addo, NPP flagbearer’s achievements in life and why he continues to live in his father’s house at his age. Ayariga also wanted 65 years as a ceiling on the maximum age for all who desired to be elected President of Ghana. On that score he thought Nana Addo and Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom of the Progressive People’s Party should be disqualified because they exceeded his age limit.
But Ken won’t have any of it, accusing Ayariga of collecting money to do the bidding of the NDC at the 2012 IEA presidential debate and engaging in feigned coughing. He also questioned what several of President Mahama’s young appointees had achieved in life before being offered their current jobs.
Then he went personal on Ametor Quarmyne, claiming only until recently, Ametor wore dirty clothes, a punch Ametor would not take lying down.
He also responded with his own prickle, telling the controversial MP that his mother was still wiping his b*tt when he, Ametor started life as a staff of the Barclays Bank on August 14, 1974.
The rest became one insult after the other until the host, KABA, saw fit to stop them, however that was not before Ametor could tell Ken he liked to insult everybody carelessly but when he is hauled in to answer for his misconduct then he feigns sickness, claiming to be suffering from diabetes.
