“I..therefore pray your high office to dismiss this petition brought before you against me for lacking bases and evidence to back any of the stated claims”
Investigative Journalist, Korsi Senyo has hit back at the Registrar General and Official Liquidator of Toki Company Ltd saying “I wish to remind the Registrar General and Official Liquidator that she cannot run away from her past activities as far as the liquidation of the Toku Company is concerned”.
The investigative journalist has said this in a five pages response to a petition filed against him at the National Media Commission (NMC) by Registrar General and Official Liquidator of Toku Company Ltd over his investigation at the Registrar General’s Department where the journalist is claiming to have uncovered a GHc4.5million scandal in relation to the liquidation of Toku Company Ltd in 2011.
He has also cautioned the Registrar General, Mrs. Jemiama Oware not to present different evidence to the NMC “outside of what the Department filed in their affidavits to the Courts” only to destroy his work and make the public see me as a bad “self-styled investigative journalist” as she named him.
I wish to remind the Registrar General and the Official Liquidator that she cannot run away from her past activities as far as the liquidation of the Toku Company is concerned and must not try to present different evidence outside what the Department filed in their affidavits to the Courts only destroy my work and make the public see me as a bad “self-styled investigative journalist”.
The rather appeared fearless Korsi Senyo has denied all the allegations leveled against him by the Registrar General, stating that he has done nothing wrong to warrant the said petition from the public officer.
For him, he has done his professional works and presented enough opportunities to the Official Liquidator to prove him otherwise if she has any counter-evidence to what he has presented in this report. He is, therefore, asking the NMC to dismiss the petition for lacking bases.
The Registrar General’s Department under the Ministry of Justice and Attorney Generals Department has petitioned the National Media Commission over the conduct of the Executive Editor of Awake News and investigative journalist Efo Korsi Senyo, on the publication of matters relating to his exposé on the liquidation of Toku Company Limited in 2011.
The investigative journalist on December 6, 2018, released a mind-blowing account of purported wrongdoing in the liquidation of the above-stated company after months of undercover work, entitled “BOMBSHELL: GH¢4.5M SCANDAL HITS REGISTRAR GENERAL“.
The investigative journalist after the release of the exposé appeared on a number of radio programs to give further clearance to the issues contained in the his report, including an interview with Captain Smart on Adom FM’s morning show where the investigative journalist clashed with the Registrar General’s legal adviser, Mr. George Kofi Bekai and her Consultant, Mr. Ahlidza.
However, in a petition dated December, 20th 2018, to the National Media Commission (NMC), by the Registrar-General and the Official Liquidator of Toku Company Ltd, Mrs. Jemima Maama Oware described the journalist’s actions as a move to scandalize and impugn the integrity of the official liquidator and the office of the Registrar General.
The petition went further to state that there was no wrongdoing in the liquidation of Toku Company Limited as being purported by the journalist in his report.
Mrs. Oware, the Registrar General, by the petition is asking the National Media Commission to;
i. restrain the investigative journalist, Efo Korsi Senyo from any act, conduct to impugn the integrity of the official liquidator, Toku Company Limited.
ii. restrain Efo Korsi Senyo from publishing on the website or on his Facebook page, on the subject matter.
iii. apologize and withdraw the publication against the official liquidator, Toku Company Limited from Awake Newspaper and all other platforms.
iv. lastly, issue a perpetual restrain order to the journalist not to publish, comment or speak in any public forum on the subject matter.
