I will appear before Kumasi Traditional Council out of respect – Maurice Ampaw

Private Legal Practitioner, Maurice Ampaw says he is prepared to respect the invitation of the Kumasi Traditional Council.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) authority has been allowed a one-week final ultimatum, beginning from today, Monday, to deliver its Chairman in the Ashanti Region, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi, before the Kumasi Traditional Council at the Manhyia Palace.

This follows claimed slanderous comments he made against the Asantehene about a fortnight back.

Lawyer Maurice Ampaw, who is also alleged to have made similar derogatory remarks on radio, is expected to appear alongside Chairman Wontumi.

In response to the invitation, Mr. Ampaw said in an interview on Joy FM's Top Story on January 22 that he is willing to go "out of respect," even though he has the right to be represented by a lawyer.

"I will go on Monday out of regard," he brought up.

He referenced that it just exists in the locale of the High Court to orally broaden solicitations. Subsequently, he expects to get a proper notification to explain the reason for the greeting.

"As I speak, I don't realize which issue is in question, which remarks I have made" he added.

He mentioned that despite the fact that he has not been officially notified of any summons, he is always prepared to attend the meeting in order to voice his concern.

Legal advisor Ampaw kept up with his position on the remarks he passed before the request.

… I did it in the public interest. It involves public interest. All that I expressed there, I'm answerable. Administrator Wontumi isn't capable. He stated, "They should provide better particulars if the Traditional Council deems it appropriate to invite me."

In the interim, the NPP hosts guided get-together individuals to abstain from offering any delicate remarks about the Manhyia Palace.
