The Central Regional Chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress( NDC), Allotey Jacobs has insisted he will still drag the opposition New Patriotic Party(NPP) Communication official, Hopeson Adorye to court over issues of defamation.
“I won’t let it go, I will ensure he’ll be made responsible for the defamatory words he imputed to me,” Jacobs told Fiifi Banson in an interview with Kasapa 102.5 FM.
Rumours went viral that the NDC bigwig who was abroad for a business transaction was escorted from the craft he traveled with and questioned when his flight arrived at Heathrow Airport following a tip-off that he was carrying too much money.
The rumours further said Ghana’s High Commissioner to the UK, Victor Smith dispatched officials of the High Commission to help Chairman Allotey.
But Allotey Jacobs vehemently denied his arrest and vowed to deal ruthlessly with Hopeson Adorye, who’s believed to have started the rumour by publishing it on his Facebook wall,when he Allotey returned back home to Ghana .
However Hopeson Adorye rubbished Allotey’s threat describing it as empty and insisted that Allotey Jacobs was momentarily arrested and questioned over a case of money laundering Sunday while boarding a flight to the UK.
But Allotey Jacobs who is still irked by what he described as mere falsehood peddled against him said he’ll pursue the defamation lawsuit against the NPP official despite the plea on his behalf.
“We have to correct the trend of our body politics. You cannot do politics like that- One person’s freedom ends where another person’s freedom begins. You just don’t come out and destroy somebody’s image like that – It’s a complete defamation,” Allotey Jacobs fumed. kasapafmonline
