Odike’s woes deepen as Asante Bediatuo’s lawyers issue a one-week ultimatum

Lawyers for the Executive Secretary to the President, Nana Asante Bediatuo, have demanded a retraction and apology from the embattled founder and leader of the United Progressive Party, Akwasi Addai alias ‘Odike’.

Odike recently incurred the wrath of the Kumasi Traditional Council for allegedly accusing some chiefs in the Ashanti Region of being embroiled in illegal mining (galamsey) activities.

On the back of the same matter, lawyers at Marfo and Associates in a letter dated August 24, 2022, say Odike deliberately sought to malign the President’s Executive Secretary when he said in a radio interview that “Bediatuo of flagstaff house has brought people to Bosomefreho to engage in galamsey”.


According to the lawyers, Odike failed to verify his claims while intended on maligning, causing public disaffection, injuring their client’s reputation, and reducing his reputation in the eyes of right-thinking members of society.

The lawyers, therefore, demanded a retraction and apology from Odike for his comment noting that a failure on his part could result in the commencement of legal action against him.
