Ghanaweb.com and KASAPA FM have been sued by a legal practitioner for defamation at the Winneba High Court.
A claimed statement captured from the defamatory publication of Kasapaonline on 28 March says” The resigned National Democratic Congress Parliamentary Candidate for Effutu, Lawyer Victor Yankson believes the current Parliamentary Candidate, Dr James Kofi Annan cannot wrestle the seat from the incumbent MP.
Mr Victor Yankson, the plaintiff is asking for general damages of GH¢500.000.00.
The two news organizations are to retract their publications about him on their blogs with the caption ” NDC Effutu Parliamentary Candidate cannot win.
He bemoaned that the publication and its contents were reckless and defaming him.
He continued to say, the publication was false and injurious to his political career and ended him to ridicule and hatred from the public which has caused him to be avoided within the NDC party.
Dr Annan James replaced him as the Parliamentary Candidate and had been working hand in hand towards the victory of the upcoming 2020 general elections until the publication, he said.
