Sammy Gyamfi threatens legal action against Asaase Radio and ABC News over false allegations of misusing NDC funds for Miami trip

Sammy Gyamfi, the Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has announced his intention to pursue legal action against Asaase Radio and ABC News.

This decision follows reports that went viral, alleging that Gyamfi and his wife took a lavish trip to Miami using party funds.

Speaking on an Accra-based television, Sammy Gyamfi vehemently denied the accusations, labeling them as "ridiculous and purely nonsensical."

He provided a detailed account of his whereabouts during the alleged period, which included attending funerals and hosting party events, to debunk the claims.

“These are just lies from demented minds. At the time they wrote the story, I believe it was Friday or Saturday. On Saturday, I was at Mawuena Trebarh’s funeral. Sunday, I was in Suame for our regional organiser’s mother’s funeral. Even on Wednesday, I was in Accra hosting NDC 360 and in the High Court on Thursday with Dr. Ato Forson. So, when was I in Miami, and how could the NDC have given me $42,000? It’s just ridiculous, purely nonsensical.”

Sammy Gyamfi explained that the video circulating is likely from one of his past trips to Miami following his marriage, not a recent trip funded by the NDC.

“This is just foolishness because I’ve never been to the hotel they are talking about. I know nothing about that hotel. I’ve never stayed in Miami for two weeks. I’ve been to Miami a couple of times, just like other states in the US.”

He expressed frustration over the fabricated story, attributing it to certain political elements trying to discredit him.

“The video circulating has been cut from one of my past trips to Miami with my wife, I believe the immediate aftermath of my marriage. How that can be an issue to a group of people shows how frustrated they are and how fixated they are with Sammy Gyamfi.”

Sammy Gyamfi noted that while some of the individuals spreading the video might be unemployed NPP foot soldiers paid to malign him, he is determined to hold accountable the media outlets that propagated the false allegations.

“There are some people who will be taken on relative to this matter, and the issues will be settled in court.”

This announcement underscores Mr. Gyamfi's commitment to clearing his name and holding those responsible for the defamatory reports accountable.

The impending legal battle highlights the intense political rivalry and the lengths to which individuals or groups might go to discredit their opponents in Ghana's political landscape.
