Abronye

Juaboso lawmaker Kwabena Mintah Akandoh has sued the Bono Regional Organizer of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwame Baffoe (Abronye) and Ken City Media which belongs to Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong, for defamation.

He is demanding GHS2million damages.

The suit said “An action having been commenced against you by the issue of this writ by the above named Plaintiff. You are hereby commanded that within eight days after service of this writ on you inclusive of the day of service you do cause an appearance to be entered from you.”

Abronye had alleged on Oman FM, a member of the Ken City Media,  that Mr Akandoh demanded money from the Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman-Manu who was being investigated by a parliamentary committee over the botched Sputnik V vaccine contract.

“Akandoh was demanding from Agyeman-Manu moneys that belonged to the state in relation to the Sputnik V deal in order to stop criticizing the Health Minister with regards to the deal,” Abronye alleged on Oman FM, a comment that has attracted this suit.
