“If you’re a lady and a guy sends you MoMo for transportation and you refuse to visit him, he can sue you for deceit,” private legal practitioner, Maurice Ampaw, has said. The lawyer says partners in a relationship who fail to honour promises made to the other have flouted the laws and can face justice.

Speaking on Onua TV’s Evening News Tuesday, January 24, 2023, the vociferous lawyer said men who promise marriage to ladies and fail to fulfil them are also guilty before the law.

“If you’re in a relationship and you think you’ve been fooled, you can seek legal redress. In fact, there is something called a breach of promise to marry; if someone promises to marry you (both male and female) and fails if you have evidence, you can take the person to court. I’m glad the lady didn’t send the issue to a radio station to make it a public commentary or media trial. Taking it to court will help us to learn a lot of things,” he enlightened.

The lawyer has also advised ladies to stop spending money on men they know they won’t marry since that makes them liable for prosecution. Mr Ampaw’s comment comes on the back of a former National Service Personnel with the First Atlantic Bank who has sued a top manager she dated for failing to honour some promises he made to her.

Mr Nimako, who is a Director of Finance was sued by Deborah Seyram Adablah and he is expected to appear before the court Friday, January 27, 2023. The First Atlantic Bank has also been joined to the suit.

According to the writ of summons the plaintiff, whose national service period came to an end in July 2021, admits to being in a relationship with the married Ernest Kwasi Nimako following the fact that her happiness at the workplace was under threat had she failed to give in to the relationship.

She further states that she had turned down an opportunity to be a permanent staff after her National Service due to the manager’s promise of making life comfortable for her by paying her rent, giving her capital for business, getting her a new car and even divorcing his substantive wife for her among others.

It was captured in the writ, however, that the manager did well to deliver some part of his obligations until their relationship got complicated. She is now demanding that the rest of the promises be fulfilled including the payment of a remaining two-year rent as well as changing ownership of the car he bought for her as part of the promises.

The First Atlantic Bank, which was joined in the suit, has been accused of allowing senior officers to enter into relationships with unwilling subordinates while using the females as baits to win customers for the company.
