New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has cautioned against any attempt to stop the live telecast of the ongoing Presidential Election Petition before the Supreme Court.

He said the country is at a cross-road therefore any self-serving spin on court proceedings by both parties can trigger violence in the country.

Ken Agyapong was commenting on the possible halt of the live telecast of the court case by the Broadcasting Corporation (GBC)because it is losing about GHC100,000 daily due to the suspension of regular programming on the network.

The Director General of GBC, Major (Rtd) Albert Don-Chebe, announced that the state broadcaster might not be able to continue with the coverage without any financial assistance.

On Asempa FM?s Ekosii Sen programme Friday, Ken Agyapong said he does not see how government could not fund the live telecast.

He claim that if Mahama-led administration can dole out huge sums of tax payers money to its cronies; then it can equally fund Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) to telecast the court which is of national interest.

The Assin Central MP said the peace of the country cannot be compromised when government can afford to fund GBC to continue its live telecast.

The NPP MP underscored the need for the Presidential Election Petition to be taken seriously since according to him, the outcome can compromise peace in the country.

He maintained that Ghanaians must have the opportunity to see and hear what happens in the court room to help make their own informed view about the proceedings and accept the final verdict of the court.

Ken Agyapong said which ever way the court case goes, the supreme interest of Ghana should be paramount.

?I always tell NPP supporters that win or lose they must take it in good faith. Whether we are in opposition or in power we will still live as Ghanaians?.
