The Juaben Circuit Court on Monday, April 20, 2020 presided over a case of forgery against Nana Osei Bonsu. Nana is in court for his involvement in creating and distributing a document purported to be from the Office of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan.
Nana Osei Bonsu has been charged with an offence of publication of false news . The case was presided over by His Lordship Assibey Yusif.
A bail of GHC 10,000 with a surety of permanent residence was granted to Nana Osei Bonsu after he pleaded not guilty to the charges labelled against him by the state prosecutor.
The case was adjourned to Tuesday, 19th of May 2020 at 9am.
On 9th April 202, Nana Osei Bonsu who is the campaign aide to the Member of Parliament in the Ejisu Constituency, Hon Kwabena Owusu-Aduomi, created and circulated a fake list of 2018 beneficiaries of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan. The list was placed on a fake letterhead of NEIP and had the forged signature of the NEIP CEO, Lawyer John Kumah.
A complaint was therefore filed by the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan at the Police station due to the criminality of the matter and a subsequent arrest of Nana Osei Bonsu was made by the police. However, the Member of Parliament within 24 hours of the arrest requested that Nana be granted bail and he stood in surety for the gentleman. It was then that it came to light that the acts by Nana Osei Bonsu is being done at the berserk of the Member of Parliament for Ejisu and is part of a grand strategy targeted at destroying the image of the CEO of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan, Lawyer John Kumah.
The same document which has landed Nana Osei in the grips of the Ghana Police was also given to social media commentator, Ekow Taylor who has proceeded to use the document as basis to launch series of smear campaign mixed with lies, aimed at destroying the image of Lawyer John Kumah and weakening his popularity ahead of the NPP primaries which has been postponed.
