The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong says he will not waste time in dealing with anyone whoattempts to record him secretly.

The outspoken New Patriotic Party MP was speaking Friday on Adom Fm’s Midday News in response to the dismissal of Deputy Communications Minister, Victoria Hammah over a leaked tape on which she is alleged to have made damning revelations about some government officials.

The supposed voice of Ms Hammah is heard on the tape saying she will not quit politics until she makes at least US$1m and described a colleague deputy minister as “ugly and unintelligent”.

But speaking on Adom FM Midday News Friday, the Assinn Central MP condemned the development where people secretly record public officers, while accusing the media of encouraging such behaviours.

The MP warned, he will not tolerate any secret recording of him.

“Look, whether it’s a crime or not a crime, I insist that any person who will dare and record me without my knowledge will see the bad side of me,” Ken Agyapong asserted.

“We all gossip sometimes but any person who will challenge and betray me in any secret conversation will not go free”.

He however, blamed Ms Hammah of “talking too much”, advising that she should exercise extra caution when engaging in any form of conversation.

According to him, the fact that president John Mahama has sacked the minister, is a confirmation that the comments on the tape are true and called for further investigations into it.

Mr. Agyapong insisted that the president shows more to prove that he does not tolerate corruption and not simply sack one minister.
