Calls for A-G’s resignation unnecessary – Nana B

Source The Ghana Report

The National Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye, has rubbished calls for the Attorney-General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, to resign.

His comment follows several calls for the A-G to resign following allegations by Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the ambulance purchase trial.

Mr Jakpa had alleged before the Accra High Court that the Attorney-General had repeatedly sought his assistance to implicate Minority Leader Dr Cassiel Ato Forson in the ongoing ambulance purchase trial.

Many have described the A-G’s conduct as scandalous and as a failure to send the right signal to the justice system.

The Member of Parliament for Madina, Francis-Xavier Sosu, urged the A-G to resign or step aside from the ongoing court case to protect the integrity of the justice system.

“If indeed the learned Attorney-General has engaged in acts as alleged by the witness [Richard Jakpa], it would be appropriate for him to resign so he can be fully investigated,” he said.

The Director of Conflict Resolution for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Abraham Amaliba, also asked the Attorney-General to step down.

According to Mr Amaliba, it would be in Mr Dame’s best interest to resign before the NDC releases what it claims to be damning evidence against him.

Mr Amaliba further argued that Mr Dame is not suitable for his office due to his temperament and his tendency to perceive political opponents as enemies.

He believes that Mr Dame’s conduct undermines the impartiality required for his role.

However, Mr Boakye, popularly known as Nana B, insists there is nothing ethically wrong with what the Attorney General did.

“The calls for resignation are unnecessary. On what basis are they calling for the resignation? Is it because they are in bed with the NDC or NDC sympathisers?

“Was it wrong for Godfred Dame to have honoured an invitation from the Supreme Court judge? What was unethical about the A-G’s conduct?” he spoke to Adom FM monitored by theghanareport.com.

Meanwhile, the Spokesperson for the Attorney-General’s Department, Isaac Wilberforce Mensah, explained that the Attorney-General met only with Richard Jakpa at the pre-negotiation stage because Mr Jakpa did not have a legal representative.

Additionally, he said the meeting was held in the home of a Supreme Court justice and that Mr. Dame did no wrong.

Both the A-G and the third accused have since threatened to release further evidence to fortify their claims.
