The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong is set to be sued by Ghanaian media giant, the Multimedia Group Limited(MGL).
According to the MGL, the outspoken lawmaker made some derogatory remarks about the CEO of the company, Mr. Kwasi Twum and the firm some time ago.
Again, the MP claims that the company demanded money from the New Patriotic Party for the past five years.
MGL also revealed in their press release that some workers of the MP as well as some online media personalities, have been said for publishing the MPs’ claim without cross-checking
“In the month of July 2021 the MP for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Agyapong, made and repeated false and defamatory statements on his media platforms spurning caution issued by our lawyers on 13” July 2021.”
“Joy FM, The Multimedia Group and the Chief Executive Officer, Kwasi Twum have been compelled and have taken a firm decision to afford the MP, his media organisation and three (3) of his employees, the opportunity to prove the allegations in court,” the company said in a statement.
The statement also indicated that two other online publications that “circulated the outright falsehoods without care or any attempt to verify the allegations” are also joined to the suit.
“The broadcasts and publications falsely sought to portray [us] as unethical, unprofessional and criminal,” the company added in a statement.
