Ambulance Case: NDC Persistent Dislike of AG, Worthless and Nonsensical – NPP

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has called out the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for what they perceive as utterly disliked and worthless attacks on Godfred Dame, Ghana’s attorney general.

In a press conference on May 28, 2024, Frank Davis Esq., the Head of Legal Affairs of the New Patriotic Party, referred to the NDC for their persistent attack on the image of the attorney general. According to him, it’s evidence in the period it took them to vet Godfred Dame.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, if at all, the only persecution in this instance is the malicious and perennial dislike of the NDC towards the Attorney General since he assumed office, and the several attempts to stultify his work. The records are there to show that right from his appointment as Attorney General, the NDC has spent one of the longest periods in vetting him with the hope of impeaching his appointment but the Attorney General remained resolute to their admiration,” Mr. Davis said.

Mr. Frank Davis further accused the NDC of submitting a motion in parliament to censure and remove the Attorney General from office.

“Having failed, the NDC filed a Motion for Censure to remove Godfred Dame from office as Attorney-General soon after his appointment which also failed. The NDC have since his appointment held over twelve(12) Press Conferences against the person of the Attorney General,” he said.

He also said that the Attorney General initiated the trial against Ato Forson before he was appointed Minority Leader, rendering the NDC’s claims worthless and nonsensical.

“This pressure stems from some warped and baseless logic of the NDC that the Ato Forson’s prosecution is politically motivated and its Leader in Parliament, should be immune from prosecution even when the facts indicate conduct resulting in financial loss to the state,” Mr. Davies said.

In his view, the persistent persecution of the NDC is unjustified towards the Attorney General since his appointment, and their repeated efforts to undermine his work.

Referring to the 3rd accused, Mr. Davies alleged that Richard Jakpa is a “further ploy, contrived to curtail the prosecution of Ato Forson and smear the Attorney General’s integrity and reputation.”
