Lawyers of Communication Minister Ursula Owusu have called on musician/comedian A Plus to retract his comments tagging her as corrupt or face legal action.
In a letter addressed to the rapper, real name Kwame Asare Obeng, he is asked to retract comments to the effect that Ursula has been involved in some corrupt practices by the 1st of June, or risk being dragged to court for defamation.
A Plus, in a recent Facebook post, said the arrest of Kwesi Nyantakyi was being used as a distraction to cover up, among others, a corrupt government deal involving Ursula and her ministry.
A livid Ursula, who accused the erstwhile Mahama administration of corruption numerous times, has warned the rapper of consequences if he doesn’t retract and apologize.
“We are instructed to notify you that our client takes a serious view of your defamatory publication on Facebook and would not hesitate to commence legal action against you if the said publication is not retracted on or before June 1, 2018.” her lawyers wrote to the outspoken activist.
“We are also instructed to notify you to render an unqualified apology in the same medium and prominence in the manner that your libelous publication was done,”
