The Executive Secretary to the President, Nana Bediatuo Asante has asked the Founder of the United Progressive Party , Akwasi Addai Odike to retract and apologise to him for defaming him.
This was after Odike claimed that Bediatuo Asante had links to illegal mining in Bosomefreho.
A letter from Mr. Asante’s lawyers said “We are instructed to inform you [Odike] that the said publication that you put in the public domain is absolutely false.”
“It is instructive to point out to you that you ought to have taken steps to verify the authenticity of the information before publishing same in the public domain,” the letter added.
It further stated that Okdike’s comments were “carefully calculated to malign, cause public disaffection, injure the reputation and reduce our client’s reputation in the eyes of right-thinking members of society.”
