Hot Suit Springfield sues the new statesman & El-Hajj over false publication

 According to the statement issued by Springfield, the four newspapers  “published rumours” that were “false, baseless and calculated to do untold harm to our business interests and undermine our hard-won reputation.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Ghanaian energy company, Sprinfieled has threatened to take legal action against  The New Statesman, The Al-Hajj, Herald and houses for carrying what they describe as falsehood about their  company and its Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Okyere.

 

 Below is the full statement

"We view with great concern rumours emanating from the segment of the social, print and electronic media that our company is one of those involved in unwholesome activities in the Oil and Gas industry in Nigeria.

For nearly a decade, we have partnered with reputable companies such as Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), National Petroleum Authority (NPA) and Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) within the Gulf of Guinea and internationally, BP, Total, Chevron, Glencore etc.

 In all these dealings, we have abided by all industry regulations and successfully met all our financial obligations to these partners.

Our Chief Executive, Kevin Okyere, continues to enjoy his reputation as one of the youngest industry CEO’s around the world. We state categorically that these published rumours are false, baseless and calculated to do untold harm to our business interests and undermine our hard-won reputation.

We will continue to play our part in the development of the oil and gas industry in the Gulf of Guinea to the benefit of our people. We have instructed our lawyers to file law suits against The New Statesman, The Al-Hajj, Herald and The Republic for participating in the publication of falsehood against our CEO, Kevin Okyere and our company relating to our businesses in Ghana and Nigeria.

We would like to use this opportunity to thank those media houses who have asked for our own side of the story before publishing. In the same vein, we will robustly defend our companies’ reputation against any media or persons who will attempt to tarnish it."
