Asiedu Nketiah: Dismiss and prosecute Dame over ambulance case

Johnson Asiedu Nketiah

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has demanded the immediate resignation or dismissal of Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame, citing serious allegations of misconduct.


The call comes after the release of a 16-minute audio recording, which the NDC claims implicates Mr. Dame in an attempt to manipulate court proceedings against Minority Leader Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson. The recording allegedly features a conversation where Godfred Dame instructs the third accused, Richard Jakpa, on how to testify in court to discredit Dr. Forson.


This revelation has led the NDC to question Mr. Dame’s qualifications to lead the Ghana Bar and his suitability for his role as Attorney General. During a press conference on Tuesday, May 28, National Chairman John Asiedu Nketiah articulated the party’s stance.


“Considering the scandalous nature of this recording and other forms of evidence we have shown you, we wish to make the following pressing demands as part of the efforts to restore credibility to the Attorney General’s Office and Ghana’s Judicial system,” said Nketiah.


“The immediate and unconditional resignation or dismissal of Godfred Dame for bringing the high office of the Attorney General and the Minister of Justice into repute and public opprobrium. Clearly, Mr. Dame is not fit to hold himself out as Attorney General and Minister of Justice. He is unfit to be the leader of the Ghana bar,” he declared.


The NDC also insists on the immediate prosecution of Godfred Dame for alleged legal violations, warning that if President Akufo-Addo fails to act, an NDC-led government will pursue legal action in the future.


Moreover, the party has called for disciplinary proceedings against Mr. Dame by the General Legal Council. They also propose a publicly televised parliamentary inquiry into these allegations and other reported judicial manipulations by Godfred Dame to prevent any recurrence.


“The immediate prosecution of Godfred Dame for multiple violations of the laws of Ghana. We wish to make it clear that should President Akufo-Addo refuse or fail to prosecute him, the future NDC government will prosecute Godfred Dame for this heinous crime or fabrication of evidence,” Nketiah continued.


“Commencement of disciplinary proceedings by the General Legal Council against Godfred Dame and his disbarment for this conduct unbecoming of a lawyer and, more importantly, the leader of the Ghana bar. A publicly televised parliamentary inquiry into this and other reports of judicial manipulations by Godfred Dame to censure him and prevent the recurrence of such judicial manipulation,” he concluded.
