OBAMA, CHRISTOPHER, AND SONGO

Paintsil’s legal action stems from what he considers defamatory attacks following his appointment as assistant coach for the Black Stars, where he will be working alongside Otto Addo.

The controversy arose after Paintsil criticized the Save Ghana Football demonstration led by the mentioned journalists before his appointment. They perceived his comments as undermining their cause, leading to intense backlash upon his appointment.

In response to allegations made by Countryman Songo and others questioning his qualifications, Paintsil mobilizes his legal team to initiate court proceedings.

The defendants, which include Multimedia Group, Angel Broadcasting Network, Omni Media Limited, and the four journalists, have been served with a writ, giving them eight days to respond and enter an appearance in court.

Paintsil’s decision to pursue legal action reflects his determination to uphold his reputation amidst what he views as unjust criticism.
