NPP- Assin Central MP, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong in a video that since gone viral has declared a personal war with one Razak Kojo Opoku, a Communications Officer at the National Lottery Authority (NLA) for claiming that he has the wherewithal to literally control the entire leadership at NLA and also, promising to end the business of licensed private lotto operators know as banker to banker.
Interestingly, Kennedy Agyapong revealed that, Razak Opoku was employed to NLA in 2018 by Osei Ameyaw, the immediate past Director-General of the NLA until the latter was removed from office recently.
“A guy called Razak, he’s so vicious. If you listen to the audio, this guy claims he has the media power and can write, therefore, not even President Akufo-Addo can stop him. He said by 30th June, 32 companies will have their license expire so he will collapse those companies,” Kennedy Agypong said.
“A Ghanaian known as Razak and has the media. He will see what is coming in this country. Nobody can use the media to threaten anybody. He further threatened [that] any Director-General that will be appointed to the NLA and refuses to listen to him, he will deal with him and resign. How can you have human beings thinking like this? Apparently, when I did my investigations, he was the PRO to Osei Ameyaw and the things he said about Osei Ameyaw…you’re a wicked human being…” Hon. Agypong added.
Agyapong who was furious about this pride and intent to destroy another Ghanaian businesses as sickening and warned Razak Kojo Opoku against his alleged threats that one Alpha will die. “You’ll die first; God will punish you for the evil mind you have against your own fellow Ghanaians and destroying their business…,” Agyapong added.
“…any Director-General who will come to NLA and fool, what I will do to you, you will resign and go. We won’t allow individual private companies doing short code, draws from Monday to Sunday including holidays…what kind of nonsense is that? And you were a Director-General and you were sitting down and all this nonsense was going on? When we prompted him, he said he will be telling Razak to make publications. You’re inciting the Banker to Banker people against me. To be honest, Akufo-Addo cannot even challenge me, [because] I have the media power, I know how to write and know how to speak. We will deal with the Banker to Banker people…” Razak Kojo Poku was heard saying on the tape.
Kennedy Agyapong use the opportunity to question such bad attitudes and asked that, such negative attitudes should be stopped.
However, from these pictures found, Razak Poku is seen to have close associations with some top NPP members. These are a few of the pictures we found online of him.
