Felix Kwakye Ofosu, a formal deputy minister of information has filed a case against an electoral commissioner Pauline Dadzawa for defamation over claims that he kept half of $12m which was meant to bribe some electoral commission officials.
The EC commissioner claimed that, the former minister kept $6m of the $12m and gave Mrs. Charlotte Osei the remaining $6m when he realised the NDC had no chance of winning the 2016 election.
Felix Kwakye denied the allegation, saying there is no truth in what Pauline Dadzawa claims, and has given her 24hrs to withdraw the claims against him or face a legal action.
“As far as I’m concerned I have served adequate notice to her that I’ll take her on legally. I have not heard from her three days ago since I issued that public statement. And I give her today, Monday if I still don’t hear any retraction from her I’ll go ahead and file a defamation suit. I’m not obliged to reach her. She has every responsibility to reach me and offer explanations or better still offer some apologies. She has a responsibility towards me and she’s failed to do so. ”
He hammered in a press statement that
“at no time before, during or after the 2016 elections, was he given money by anyone from his party for the purpose described by the EC Commissioner,”
Hence he filed a case against her at the Accra High court.
