The National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyemfi has denied reports that he has made efforts for an out of court settlement relative to a suit aginst him by the Central Regional First Vice Chairman of the New Patriotic Party and Director of Operations for the Anti-galamsey Taskforce, Mr Ekow Horace Ewusi.

He says he is prepared for a face-off with the Central Regional 1st Vice Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr. Ekow Ewusi in court.

The First Vice Chairman of the NPP in the Central Region, Mr. Horace Ekow Ewusi, has sued the National communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sammy Gyamfi at the High Court of Justice, General Jurisdiction Accra, Greater Region for defamation.

The NPP stalwart confirmed the report in an interview with Peace FM News on Friday.



According to him, Sammy Gyamfi has ruined his (Ewusi's) high earned reputation calling him names and accusing him of conspiring with foreigners to undertake illegal mining in the country as a member of the Galamsey team.

He further added that the NDC activist has been making efforts to settle the issue out of court.

However, speaking on Okay fm's Ade Akye Abia Programme, Mr. Gyamfi explained that he will cause his legal team to enter an appearance on his behalf next week and file his defense accordingly.



The public interest is at stake in this issue and as a matter of fact, it is very important we all go to court for the truth to prevail at the end of the day....i hope he has the balls to pursue and sustain the suit and not chicken out,” he said.



In a rejoinder copied to Peacefmonline.com about a story published by same on 24th May, 2019, with a caption “Ekow Ewusi Sues NDC's Sammy Gyamfi for Defamation” which sought to describe that Mr. Sammy Gyamfi has made effort to seek for an out of Court settlement, he described the statement as false adding that he is ever ready to face the NPP Chairman in Court and that he has never begged any high profile person within his party to persuade the NPP man for out of court settlement.

Read REJOINDER below;

For your information, I haven’t made any effort for an out of court settlement relative to Ekow Awusi's suit against me. I fully stand by my words and will enter appearance next week and file my defense accordingly. I sincerely pray that he gets the balls to pursue and sustain the suit and not chicken out like most of them do. Let’s hope that this is not a P.R stunt.
