My son not in private school; apologise or face court —Education Minister threatens Daily Post Newspaper over defamation

Lawyers for Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum are demanding a retraction and an apology from the Daily Post Newspaper for allegedly publishing a material that has embarrassed their client.


This follows a publication in the Daily Post Newspaper on Tuesday, June 15, 2021, that it sourced to a Facebook post from Nana Osei Poku, an employee of the Ministry of Education.

In the publication, the Daily Post Newspaper insists that the Education Minister lied about not having a child enrolled in a private Senior High School.

In a letter to the Editor of the Daily Post Newspaper, the lawyers are demanding an apology and a retraction while noting that the content of the publication on Tuesday has caused their client a huge embarrassment.

“The false allegation made on the front page of your newspaper has caused our client, who is a seasoned educationist of high repute deep embarrassment, as it has lowered his standing in the eyes of right-thinking members of society,” parts of the letter reads.


It concludes, “We hereby on behalf of our client, demand that you forthwith cease and desist from making any further false claims about our client’s son’s enrollment in a private SHS and further demand that you publish in the National Dailies a retraction of the allegation made in your Tuesday 15 June 2021 issue of your newspaper, giving it the same prominence as the original defamatory publication, and render unqualified apology to our client, failing which our client will seek legal redress without further recourse to you.”
