Award-winning investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni has charged his lawyers to file a legal suit against the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Assin Central constituency, Kennedy Agyapong.
In a Facebook post on the journalist’s page, he noted that his attention has currently been drawn to a smear campaign of untruthful comment by the Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong.
“…This started when I published the “Contracts for Sale” documentary that implicated and resulted in the removal from office of the CEO of the Public Procurement Authority, Adjenim Boateng Adjei”.
Manasseh added, “It is within his right to stand by Mr. A.B Adjei, who defended Kennedy Agyapong’s wife’s contract with the Ministry of Energy worth over 100 million cedis when questions were raised about the propriety of the contract.”
According to Manasseh, he can no longer sit and watch the Assin Central MP continue spewing lies that seek to defame his personality.
”… it is unacceptable to continue to lie blatantly when he knows that there’s no truth in his malicious and defamatory claims that I sought a bribe in the investigative report.
“I have therefore instructed my lawyers to sue him and the platforms he uses to publish the falsehood,” Manasseh finally added in his post.
