The Western Regional Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah has allegedly sued media house Excellence in Broadcasting (EIB) and its general manager, Nana Aba Anamoah over Galamsey cash report.
Kwabena Okyere Darko is said to have filed a defamation suit at an Accra High Court against the media company ELB Networks.
According to Dailyguidnetwork, the Minister sued the media house over a publication where ELB stated that the regional minister had passed out after his driver run away with his GHc17 million; money which he got from illegal mining popularly known as Galamsey.
Although EIB in their Facebook post did not mention the name of any minister, Mr. Darko Mensah who is an MP for Takoradi said, “this news alert appears to cast an innuendo on my person”.
“It is therefore not strange that for those who are still bent on tarnishing my hard-won reputation and distracting me from my official duties in service to the people of my region including my unrelenting fight against illegal mining, they have jumped onto the news to further their sinister objectives.
“Please be advised that I am well and fit and carrying about my duties in good health and great spirits. I am completely unfazed by these attempts to derail my work. All well-meaning Ghanaians are therefore advised to disregard the said news alert and treat it with the contempt it deserves, he added.
