Attorney-General Godfred Yeboah Dame has dismissed allegations made against him by Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the ongoing ambulance trial, calling them baseless and part of the NDC’s “deceptions and deceit.”

Speaking at a UK Town Hall meeting on June 23, 2024, Dame urged NPP members to resist the NDC’s lies, claiming these falsehoods have even spread to London, where his brother overheard people discussing him at a barber shop.

Dame stated that the allegations against him crumbled during the cross-examination of Jakpa. He quoted President Akufo-Addo, saying the accusations have “fallen in water.”

Jakpa had alleged that Dame encouraged him to give false testimony against Minority Leader Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson. The NDC released a 16-minute audio recording to support Jakpa’s claims, purportedly capturing a conversation where Dame coached Jakpa on what to say in court.

NDC Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketia described the recording as evidence of coaching. However, NPP legal practitioner Frank Davies argued that the tape was manipulated, containing repetitions, overlaps, and voice distortions.

The court has admitted the audio recording and WhatsApp conversations as evidence. Dame maintains that the cross-examination has exposed the NDC’s deceit.
