AG Will Not Resign – NPP

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has rejected the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s call for the Attorney General (AG) and Minister of Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame, to quit over “doctored tape.”

According to the ruling party, the AG will not resign since he continues to be “witty, resolute, and focused in the delivery of his work.”

Addressing the media in Accra yesterday, NPP Director of Legal and Constitutional Affairs, Frank Davies, stated that the calls were misplaced as the claims against the AG are fabrications made by the NDC and the third accused person, Richard Jakpa.

He said that if the NDC believes that Minority Leader Ato Forson has no case to answer for “willfully causing financial loss to the state,” the party should remain in silence and trust the judicial system to declare him innocent.

Mr. Davies denounced the claims against the AG as “malicious orchestrations” that aim to undermine the judicial system.

He said, “We are clear in our minds that the call for the resignation of the Attorney General is misplaced, unwarranted and this would not put any spokes in the prosecution of Cassiel Ato Forson and his associates.”

“Also, coming from the NDC, the call for the Attorney General to resign is very, very rich,” the NPP Director of Legal and Constitutional Affairs asserted.

He stated that the Attorney General has never approached the third accused for a talk, let alone asked him to skew his testimony against the first accused, Cassiel Ato Forson.
