It has now emerged that contrary to earlier reports that the legal tussle between Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako and Ibrahim Mahama, has brought the former down to his knees is unambiguously untrue.

The Herald Newspaper was first to publish that "the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, is limping around the case brought against him by businessman, Ibrahim Mahama, whom he had called a thief."  Below is a link to the story


But it however turns out that the Ashanti Regional Chairman for the New Patriotic Party is battle ready to allow the Kumasi High court determine a case in which the brother of President Mahama claims he called him a thief.

From investigations gathered, counsel for Mr. Antwi-Boasiako, Egbert Faibille Jnr., informed the court of changing his client’s defense in the defamation case filed against him and this attracted a fee of GHC 1,000.

From the defense submitted, Mr. Boasiako (aka Chairman Wontumi), has changed his defense from not calling both President Mahama and Ibrahim Mahama thieves, at a political rally in Obuasi.

The Particulars of Fair Comments are listed below:

(a)Plaintiff is very well known in political circles because of his uterine connection to President Mahama as brother.

(b)Plaintiff is involved in politics.

(c) Defendant is also involved in politics.

(d)Prices of petroleum prices are increased incessantly.

(e)Defendant and most Ghanaians suffer to pay petroleum price.

(f)Plaintiff has a private jet which is common knowledge to all Ghanaians and in which he travels frequently within and without Ghana.

Lawyer for Ibrahim Mahama, Charles Zwenes has been tasked to also do the necessary amendment to the files despite Otumfuo's advise to both parties that they should end the legal tussle.
