The national youth organiser for the opposition NDC, Mr. George Opare Addo has sued his colleague NDC activist Mr. Joseph Yamin for defamation. Details of the cause of the suite will be published in a latter date. However information available to this reporter has it that, the former deputy Ashanti Regional minister shared a letter on a WhatsApp group which suggested that Pablo was working against John Mahama's candidature. The information further revealed that the NDC national youth organiser denied the content of the letter and asked Yamin who is also canvassing for the position of national organiser of the party to withdraw and apologize to him (Pablo). But Yamin argued that he didn't author the letter hence owed no one an apology.
After consulting his lawyers, Opare Addo chose to sue his colleague in order to clear his name.
But the action of the national youth organiser has angered a section of NDC supporters who have called on Pablo to withdraw the law suit.
Asaana Bukari Majeed is one of the disgruntled supporters who wants the suit withdrawn. In a write up posted on his official Facebook page, Asaana accused the youth organiser of incompetence. He said Pablo was staying in US while his counterpart in NPP was busy campaigning in 2020. Asaana added that Pablo is acting the way he is doing now because he knows he will lose the next national executive election.
"This letter have come to my notice.
A suite on the letter relating to a post that was posted on a diplomatic platform fingering Mr George Opera Addo, the national youth organizer for the NDC as a mole against JM and other related allegations on the said post.
One month ago, I came across a letter from Mr George Opera Addo asking Hon. Joseph YAMIN to apologize for sharing a letter that he (Yamin) shared on WhatsApp platforms which wasn't written by Hon. Yamin and that was responded to him directly the same way he served Hon. Joseph Yamin.
This evening again, I came across a court suit against Hon Joseph Yamin.
This suit have no merits and lack substance and must be disregarded by the court.
He, George Opera Addo and his cohorts within and outside the party are trying all possible best to stop Hon. Joseph Yamin from contesting the Organizer position for NDC and also trying all they can to make him unpopular in his quest to becomes the next national Organizer hopeful. This agenda will fall flat.
If George Opera Addo is really not sabotaging JM and the NDC, he would had used internal mechanism to resolve issues he had with an influential person like Yamin.
I am disappointed on our national youth Organizer and he must be called by the party to stop exposing his ignorance as a lawyer because this might go a long way to affect he party .
Mr George Opera Addo should go and hunt his enemies who wrote that letter not Hon. Joseph Yamin. Those advising him to have issues with Hon. Joseph Yamin are doing a great disservice to him and his team of cohort.", parts of the release reads.
