The JOSPONG Group has reiterated the commitment of its Executive Chairman Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong to respect state institutions, especially the judiciary as a law abiding citizen.
Reacting to media reports suggesting that a bench warrant had been issued for the arrest of Dr. Agyepong for allegedly refusal to appear in court, the JOSPONG Group in a statement explained, “The absence of Dr. Agyepong from court on the date of the hearing was not deliberate, the reason being that Dr. Agyepong had no notice of the proceedings”.
The statement maintained, “as a responsible citizen of the Ghana, the Executive Chairman will always avail himself for any exercise aimed at entrenching the rule of law in this nation”.
According to the statement, the Executive Chairman of the JOSPONG Group of Companies has instructed his lawyers to “vehemently” contest the proceedings which, he believes were instituted in bad faith to cause him public disaffection
Below is the full statement
The attention of the Jospong Group of Companies has been drawn to media publications that a bench warrant has been issued for the arrest of Dr. Agyepong for allegedly refusing to appear before a Kumasi High Court.
The JOSPONG Group of companies hereby assures all Ghanaians that their Executive Chairman; Dr Agyepong is a law abiding citizen who has the highest level of respect for all persons and institutions of government.
The JOSPONG Group of companies further state that Dr. Agyepong holds in the highest regard, the judiciary which is entrusted with the constitutional mandate of protecting the rights of every citizen of the Republic of Ghana.
The absence of Dr. Agyepong from court on the date of the hearing was not deliberate, the reason being that Dr. Agyepong had no notice of the proceedings. The Executive Chairman of the JOSPONG Group of Companies has accordingly instructed his lawyers to vehemently contest the proceedings which, upon the advice of his lawyers have been instituted in bad faith and deliberately being given publicity only for purposes of mischief and to cause public disaffection for Dr. Agyepong.
We therefore hereby implore the public to disregard the erroneous impression that the publication sought to portray to the effect that the Executive Chairman deliberately refused to appear before the Honourable Court.
As a responsible citizen of the Ghana, the Executive Chairman will always avail himself for any exercise aimed at entrenching the rule of law in this nation.
We believe this is one of the numerous attempts by some people to maliciously tarnish the image of the Executive Chairman and the public should therefore reject it with the disdain it deserves.
