I have no interest in Sandbox Beach Resort land – Bediatuo

The Secretary to the President, Nana Bediatuo Asante, says he has no interest in a supposed parcel of land near the Sandbox Beach Resort in Accra

The Secretary to the President, Nana Bediatuo Asante, acting through his lawyers, Minkah-Premo & Co, has issued a statement insisting that he has no interest whatsoever in a supposed parcel of land near the Sandbox Beach Resort in Accra. Nor does he own the Sandbox Beach Resort as reported in sections of the media, he says.

According to the statement from Nana Bediatuo Asante’s lawyers, “a certain Jeffrey Tetteh, described as ‘leader of the Abafun delegation’, is said to be the one who has accused him of illegally claiming title to the parcel of land close to the Sandbox Beach Resort. The allegations, he says, are spurious, unfounded and libellous.

“Our client states without equivocation that the allegation by the said Mr. Tetteh that he is ‘illegally claiming title to a parcel of land’ close to Sandbox Beach Resort is absolutely false. Furthermore, the allegation that Sandbox Beach Resort belongs to our client is also false.

“We state emphatically that our client does not own nor has any interest in Sandbox Beach Resort. We further state that our client has neither acquired nor claimed title to any parcel of land adjacent to it,” the statement says.

“Retract in full”

In addition, Bediatuo Asante’s lawyers argue: “The assertion that our client intends to use the state machinery, by virtue of his position in the current administration, to annex the above-mentioned parcel of land is patently false. Our client further states that the allegation suggesting that he visited the said area in the company of weapon-bearing thugs is wholly untrue and utterly despicable.”

Through his lawyers, Nana Bediatuo Asante is therefore demanding “that the said allegations, being false and contrived, be retracted in full, and an unqualified apology rendered” within 48 hours.

“We have advised our client on the various legal options available to him, including initiating an action in defamation in the event that the above demand is not heeded. It is our fervent hope that the originators of these reprehensible untruths will do the needful in order that finality can be brought to this matter,” the statement notes.
