In a letter signed by the Public Relations Officer of the New Media Association, Adeyemi Adebayo, the association expressed its sincerest apology for any offence caused considering the ethical standards upheld by the association.
They noted the attention of the New Media Association has been drawn to a lapse in content oversight that has resulted in the unintended promotion of sexually explicit material on his platform.
Adeyemi Adebayo established that Mr Samuel Dortey Kumah is taking immediate corrective actions to address the situation and prevent any recurrence in the future.
He also appealed to the Cybersecurity Authorities to pardon Sammy Kay’s actions as they reckon this incident is an isolated oversight that will not happen for the second time.

It was reported that Sammykay had been arrested by the Ghana Police Service following a publication he made about the recent Abena Korkor saga.
