South Dayi Member of Parliament (MP), Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, has joined the chorus of voices calling for the dismissal of Godfred Yeboah Dame from his position as Attorney-General and Minister for Justice.
His demand comes in the wake of a 16-minute recording released by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) allegedly containing discussions between the AG and Richard Jakpa, the third accused person in the ongoing ambulance procurement case, with suggestions that the AG tried to recruit Jakpa to aid in the false condemnation of Minority Leader Cassiel Ato Forson.
This release of the recording followed recent allegations by Mr. Jakpa, suggesting that the Attorney-General had encouraged him to provide false testimony against the Minority Leader in the ongoing ambulance case.
The purported recording captures a conversation between Godfred Dame and Jakpa, where Dame is alleged to have coached Mr Jakpa on the statements to make in court, specifically targeting Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson.
At a press conference on May 28, NDC Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketia insisted that the tape showed a coaching session designed to influence Mr Jakpa’s court testimony.
However, NPP legal practitioner, Frank Davies countered the NDC’s claims during a press conference on the same day.
He argued that the tape contained repetitions, overlaps, and voice distortions, suggesting potential manipulation by the NDC.
Nevertheless, the lawmaker stands firm on the authenticity of the tape and its grounds for Mr. Dame’s removal from office.
According to him, Mr. Dame’s handling of the case over the past four years demonstrates a lack of understanding, bringing the credibility of the AG’s office into question.
Speaking in an interview with TV3 on Wednesday, May 29, maintained that Mr. Dame’s actions have tarnished the reputation of the AG’s office and warrant his immediate removal from office.
“I was scandalized when listening to the tape. Our Attorney General didn’t even understand the case he has been prosecuting for four years, and it took an accused person to be explaining what letters of credit mean to him. He has brought the hallow office of the Attorney General into gross disrepute,” he said.
