Alleged Audio Tape Involving Attorney General and Third Accused in Ambulance Case: NPP Claims Tampering by NDC 3

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has raised concerns about the authenticity of an alleged audio tape involving Attorney General Godfred Dame and Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the ambulance case. The tape was released by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and has sparked controversy.

NPP’s Stance

At a press conference, NPP National Organizer Henry Nana Boakye (Nana B) asserted that the tape had been tampered with. According to him, the NDC had manipulated the recording to create a specific impression. He described it as “distorted” and claimed that it was “cut and pieced together.” The NPP believes that the NDC’s intention was to discredit the Attorney General and influence public opinion.

Background

Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the ambulance case, revealed during cross-examination that Attorney General Godfred Dame had been contacting him at odd hours to obtain testimony that could implicate the Minority Leader, Dr. Ato Forson. Dr. Ato Forson, a former Deputy Finance Minister, is facing trial for his alleged role in the procurement of faulty ambulances for Ghana. The revelation led to public discussions, with some calling for the Attorney General’s resignation.

NDC’s Response

In response to the NPP’s claims, the NDC played the tape during their own press conference. Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the NDC General Secretary, stated that Jakpa had never requested a plea bargain, contradicting the Attorney General’s assertions. The NDC’s move aimed to challenge the credibility of the evidence presented by the NPP.

Security Analyst’s Perspective

Security analyst Dr. Adam Bonaa has weighed in on the matter, refuting the NPP’s claims. He maintains that the tape released by the NDC was not doctored1. However, the controversy continues, and the public awaits further developments in this high-profile case.
