Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr has advised Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong, to make sure he always has evidence to back his claims before making accusations against people.

According to Kweku Baako, allegations do not hold water in court, so the Assin Central legislator must learn how to speak with facts backed with evidence.

Commenting on his victory against Kennedy Agyapong in a defamatory case, Kweku Baako said “there is no oxygen of life for ugly noises and allegations, borne out of allegations in a court of law. There, facts and evidence speak, not ugly noises and malicious allegations.”

According to Kweku Baako, he is happy he chose to defend his integrity in court after Kennedy Agyapong defamed him.

“I am happy I chose to vindicate my integrity in the appropriate forum, a court of law and not on radio, television or social media, which is also an available option in a democratic space,” he stated.

Showing appreciation for all who stood with him in the 20 months of litigation, Mr. Baako said “May Allah bless them all, long live Ghana.”

Veteran journalist, Kweku Baako won his defamatory suit against Kennedy Agyapong on Friday, June 26 at the Accra High Court.

The Assin Central legislator used words Mr Baako deemed were defamatory against him and in addition to that, Kennedy Agyapong dared Kweku Baako to pursue a lawsuit against him if he (Kweku Baako) was unhappy.

After more than 20 months of trial, the Accra High Court came out with its verdict and ruled in favour of Kweku Baako.

The court has consequently given Kennedy Agyapong 30 days to retract and apologise three times on the platforms he used to defame Kweku Baako.

Kennedy Agyapopng is to pay the damage of GHC100,000 with the cost of GHC30,000.
