Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Minister of Communications has threatened to file a defamatory suit against Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as Kwame A-Plus, a New Patriotic Party (NPP) activist over an alleged libelous publication.

Through her solicitors, she is demanding for an immediate retraction and apology before June 1, 2018 for the comments the musician made on Facebook in the wake of the Kwasi Nyantakyi Ghana Football Association (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 Kelni GVG stinking scandal.”

He is also alleged to have accused Mrs Owusu-Ekuful of being involved in “some shady deals at the Communications Ministry and National Communication Authority (NCA).”

The minister has not taken kindly to the allegations and has threatened to sue the musician to clear her name if he does not retract and apologise.

“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.

“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,” counsel for the minister, Gary Nimako Marfo, stated in a letter to the musician.

Meanwhile the controversial musician in a  Facebook post showing no sign of regret called the Minister of Communication a bluff   saying  “…I’m not afraid of anyone. Not a single soul. I’m wild like a lion!!! Bring it on. You’ll be humiliated.

He dared Mrs Owusu-Ekuful to carry through her threat insisting he has no intention to apologise for the publication.

“When you were waking me up at dawn to accuse John Mahama of everything did he sue me? You people will regret knowing me, I will fight you till I drop dead!!!

“This Kwame A-Plus guy is a whole new Ghanaian, I’m not afraid of anyone, you can’t intimidate me, you just can’t. Nobody!!!

“I’m not one of the people you can intimidate in Ghana,” he wrote in another post. –myjoyonline.com/rainbowradioonline.com
