Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has been appointed the new Board Chairman of the Ghana Gas Company Limited according to Graphic Online.

Mr. Agyapongs appointment comes barely a week after he made threatening comments against Multimedia journalist, Erastus Asare Donkor over his coverage of the bloody Ejura demonstrations. The controversial MP has since been dragged before parliaments privileges committee while the Presidency has also been petitioned by Multimedia over the lawmaker’s threat of harm, but many are sceptical about the possibility of anything happening.

The chairman of Parliaments Defence and Interior Committee is on record to have issued similar threatening comments that led to the killing of Ahmed Suale, Tiger Eye investigative journalist.

Other members of the nine-member board are Mr. Ben KD Asante, the Managing Director of the company; Mr. John Darko, Mrs. Adelaide Mary Benneh; Awulae Amihere Kpanyinli; Mr Abraham Ossei Aidooh; Madam Delphine Dogbegah; Nana Owusu Ansah Ababio, and Mr. Stephen Sumani Nayina as members.

The members of the board are expected to provide direction and leadership in the day-to-day running of the nation’s only gas transmission utility.
