Controversial comedian, Kwame A Plus, has been warned by lawyers of Deputy Chief of Staff, Francis Asenso-Boakye, to apologise and retract his “defamatory” comments or face court action.
The outspoken New Patriotic Party (NPP) sympathizer has been a strong critic of some appointees of the Nana Addo government.
A Plus is on record to have accused Asenso-Boakye of engaging in corrupt acts at the Office of the President.

According to him, the deputy Chief of Staff collects huge amounts from people before allowing them to see the President.
However, he has been asked to apologise and retract his comments, which Mr. Asenso-Boakye deem as defamatory.
In a letter addressed through his lawyers to the musician, the deputy Chief of Staff said A Plus has “waged a sustained crusade with intent to damage” his reputation.
“Our client takes a serious view of said statements including one dated 23rd May 2018 same being completely false,” the letter read.
“Your written retraction and apology, which must be delivered within seven days from the date first above, must be given the same publicity and prominence as the defamatory claims and must be unequivocal, unconditional and subject to the prior approval of our client and his solicitors.
“We have firm instructions to, without further notice to you and upon your failure, neglect or refusal to fully satisfy our client’s demands herein, take out a suit and hold you, and such as are carelessly and maliciously repeating the false claims, liable.”
This is the second time in less than 48 hours that A plus has been warned to retract his statements or face a lawsuit.
On Tuesday, Communications Minister Ursula Owusu Ekuful, also threatened to sue the musician for defaming her with his comments.
