Managing Director of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transport (BOST, Alfred Obeng has vowed to sue outspoken communications team member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sammy Gyamfi, over libelous and defamatory comments made against him.
Sammy Gyamfi who was a panelist on Badwam show on Adom TV on 19th April, 2018, in his contribution on the topic ‘Double Salary Probe: MPs Must Face The Law If – Amidu, stated in Akan suggesting that, “Mr Alfred Obeng is stealing at or from BOST, however, Martin Amidu the Special Prosecutor has turned a blind eye to that but he’s showing interest in the double salary matter.”
Mr Alfred Obeng considers the statement as libelous and defamatory.
He through his lawyers wrote to the TV station to dissociate itself from the libelous and defamatory comments made by Sammy Gyamfi and render an apology, failure of which the station would have been joined to the suit, of which the station duly complied.
However, Sammy Gyamfi, according to reports has not been given that opportunity to render an apology because of his constant wrongful attacks on the person of Mr Obeng without any proof of wrongdoing.
This time around the BOST MD our sources say has vowed not to tolerate anyone who will wrongfully attack him or the company because politics does not give right to people to defame their fellow humans without a reason.
