Ursula Owusu Ekuful, the Communication Minister may be heading to court to file a defamatory suit against controversial musician and New Patriotic Party activist, Kwame Asare Obeng.
The Minster, through her lawyers-Safo and Marfo @Law is demanding an immediate retraction and apology from the musician aka Kwame A Plus for libelous publication or be sued.
The threat follows comments by the musician made on Facebook in the wake of the Kwasi Nyantakyi GFA scandal.
On May 23, A-Plus is alleged to have written on his Facebook wall: “Kwasi Nyantakyi is only being sacrificed to cover up the $89/178 million KelniGVG stinking scandal.”
He is also alleged to have accused the Minister of being involved in “some shady deals at the Communications Ministry and National Communication Authority (NCA).”
However, Mrs Ekuful who does not appear so enthused buy the comments has threatened to sue the musician to clear her name if he does not retract and apologize.
“We are instructed to notify you that our client takes a serious view of your defamatory publication on Facebook and would not hesitate to commence legal action against you if the said publication is not retracted on or before June 1, 2018.
The letter dated May 29, 2018 signed by Senior Lawyer at the Bar, Gary Nimako Marfo advised: “We are also instructed to notify you to render an unqualified apology in the same medium and prominence in the manner that your libelous publication was done.”
