Smarttys Management And Productions Limited
Our attention has been drawn to media reports mischievously associating our clients, Selassie Ibrahim and Smarttys Management And Productions Limited with a supposed $92m contract under the national electrification project.
Our clients disassociate themselves from the execution of any such contract between the government of Ghana and the other indicated party, China Hunan Construction Engineering Group or any such entity. Our clients are not parties to the contract as reported in sections of the media.
Our clients have, when requested at various times provided merely public relations services for China Hunan Construction Engineering Group.
This does not elevate our clients to the status of parties to the contract executed by the government of Ghana.
Take note that we have the full instructions of our clients to institute legal action against any person and media house that persists in the publication or republication of the clearly defamatory and damaging media report.
Indeed, we are filing suit promptly against the media houses that carried the unfortunate untruth masquerading as a verified story.
