Lawyer Joe Debrah, a friend of Lawyer Maxwell Opoku Agyemang, has described the latter as an ungrateful friend.
Reacting to the petition presented to the President by lawyer Maxwell Opoku Agyemang for the removal of the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission Madam Charlotte Osei on his facebook wall, Mr Joe Debrah (Joe Dee), described his friend’s action as “an act of treachery”.
This was what lawyer Debrah posted on his Facebook wall.
“Maxwell Opoku-agyemang, I have read the Petition. I weep for you. I weep for me. I weep for us. In this misadventure, you won’t win. Even if you win, you will lose. Whatever your motivation, it is not too late to bail out. This act of yours smells bad on all of us. It is a pox on the Class of ’94. It is an act of treachery beneath you and beneath us. But if you will persist in this decades-long vendetta, I have to say I can’t stand with you. I am a professional but I won’t stab my brother or sister in the back. You won’t win this. Even if you win, you’d lose. Heads you lose, tails you lose. Your action sucks. Your motives …? I have fielded calls all day from our mates struggling to understand your action. Does Frema approve? Lord have mercy on us all.
Lawyer Joe Aboagye Debrah.”
When Adakabre Frimpong Manso, this afternoon interviewed lawyer Joe Debrah on his prime afternoon talk show on Neat FM to authenticate the veracity or otherwise of the post which was trending on social media, Lawyer Debrah confidently confirmed that the post was written by him and explained what led to he posting the piece on his wall.
According to the lawyer, his good friend lawyer Maxwell Opoku Agyemang has not treated Charlotte Osei with same kindness, respect, love, loyalty and care she and her parents treated them (himself and lawyer Agyemang) when they were in school (law school).
“Myself and Max came from poor backgrounds but went through our law education with ease and comfort because, Charlotte and her parents were always there when we needed help. The parents treated us like their biological children, they gave us money to buy foodstuffs to prepare food in their house and gave us stipends for our upkeep.
