On March 15, 2023, an Accra High Court dismissed the journalist’s slander claim against the politician.

The plaintiff brought the lawsuit in 2018, among other things asking for GH$25 million in monetary damages.

Nonetheless, the court presided over by Justice Eric Baah determined that the statements were true and fair despite determining that certain of the defendant’s accusations against the plaintiff may have been defamatory.

The lawsuit was ultimately rejected by the court, and the defendant was given a payment of 50,000 Ghana cedis to cover his legal expenses.
