The New Patriotic Party (NPP), has asked the Minority leader, Cassiel Ato Forson to allow the law to take its full course if he thinks his actions did not cause financial loss to the state.

They are of the view that the malicious orchestrations by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) aimed at bastardizing Ghana’s Judicial system are needless if the Minority Leader and his political party trust that he is innocent.

At a Press Conference to address spurious allegations against the Attorney General by the National Democratic Congress, Lawyer Frank Davies who spoke for the NPP said ” Ladies and Gentlemen, if it is the firm belief of the NDC and Ato Forson that no loss had occasioned the state from his conduct, then they should remain faithful to our judicial system”.

Adding that “and cease these malicious orchestrations targeted at bastardising our judicial system prevent him from standing trial to conclusion”.

The NPP noted a hatred for Godfred Dame as also another reason for the NDC’s malicious orchestrations recalling happenings during his vetting among others.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, if at all, the only persecution in this instance is the malicious and perennial dislike of the NDC towards the Attorney General since he assumed office, and the several attempts to stultify his work. The records are there to show that right from his appointment as Attorney General, the NDC has spent one of the longest periods in vetting him with the hope of impeaching his appointment but the Attorney General remained resolute to their admiration. Having failed, the NDC filed a Motion for Censure to remove Godfred Dame from office as Attorney-General soon after his appointment which also failed. The
NDC have since his appointment held over twelve(12) Press Conferences against the person of the Attorney General,” Frank Davies said.

Adding that ” The latest allegation by Richard Jakpa, the 3rd accused and an associate of Cassiel Ato Forson in this botched Ambulance procurement transaction, is therefore only a further ploy, contrived to curtail the prosecution of Ato Forson and smear the Attorney General’s integrity and reputation. But this would also not see the light of day as we believe firmly that public officials, regardless of social standing must be equally accountable for their use of public resources. Needless to say that the law is no respecter of persons
