We unreservedly apologise to the Director of Operations at the Presidency, Mr. Lord Commey for the publication of an opinion piece titled “Mr President wake up, Lord Commey is collapsing your government”on Tuesday, June 13, 2017.

We by this statement retract and apologise for any harm the publication may have caused Mr. Lord Commey.

We publish below a rejoinder by the Director of Operations at the Presidency, Lord Commey.

RE: Mr President wake up, Lord Commey is collapsing your government

My attention has been drawn to a defamatory publication on your website about me under the above headline and I want to put it on record that I am highly offended by the publication and I demand an apology and retraction.

The article supposedly written by a certain “Mawuko Quashigah” without any evidence or justification blatantly described me as a criminal and raised several fictitious allegation on my person.

I am not engaged in criminality, touchwood, and I shall continue to comport myself within the laws of the country as expected of my maker.

Once again, I demand an unequivocal apology and retraction of the defamatory publication.

I will continue to serve the government of President Akufo-Addo and the People of Ghana honestly as I have always done and anything that will seek to damage the integrity of President Akufo-Addo, I will fight it.

Thank you.

Lord Commey
