Ambulance Case: Sack Godfred Dame – AriseGhana to Akufo-Addo

AriseGhana has urged President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to dismiss Attorney General Godfred Dame following a leaked conversation involving Dame and Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the ongoing Ambulance case.

In an open court, Richard Jakpa, the third defendant in the ambulance trial involving Minority Leader Dr. Ato Forson, alleged that the Attorney General pressured him to incriminate Ato Forson. Although the Attorney General has categorically denied this claim, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) aired the recording during a press conference on Tuesday, May 28. The New Patriotic Party (NPP) argued that the tape was tampered with.

Bernard Mornah, Co-Convener of AriseGhana, in a statement, called on the President to dismiss Mr. Dame immediately to restore confidence in the Attorney General’s office and the Ghanaian Bar.

“We therefore call on the President to sack Mr. Godfred Dame without any further delay in order to restore some confidence in the office of Attorney-General as well as the Bar of Ghana,” the statement read.

AriseGhana emphasized that Dame’s actions demonstrate his inability to serve all individuals fairly, as required by his Oath of Office.

“His conduct clearly shows that he cannot do good to all manner of persons as enjoined by his Oath of Office. It is unthinkable that the man who claims to have a watertight case against the accused persons would stoop so low to engage in this kind of misconduct. His conduct is believed to run contrary to the Evidence Decree and makes him liable for criminal prosecution. If the man supposed to be the leader of the bar can desecrate the ethics of the bar in this manner, then the bar is in grave danger if he continues to lead it,” the statement concluded.
