Ambulance case: Testify under oath if you have nothing to hide

The head of legal affairs of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Edudzie Tamakloe, has challenged the Attorney-General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, to take the witness stand in the ongoing ambulance trial.

This call comes in response to comments made by the Attorney-General, who urged Ghanaians to dismiss the NDC’s arguments regarding the case, including an audio conversation between himself and the third accused person, Richard Jakpa.

Addressing a town hall meeting with some Ghanaian residents in the United Kingdom (UK), Mr Dame stated that the NDC’s allegations had collapsed when the cross-examination of Jakpa commenced.

In an interview with Citi News, Edudzie Tamakloe stated that if the Attorney-General has nothing to hide, he should testify under oath.

“If the Attorney General was doing what is right, why was he worried as to whether anybody was recording him or not? This bravery from a safe distance should be dismissed with alacrity. You leave Ghana, you go to London and start making noise.

“If he is a man, nothing precludes him from taking the witness stand. That I am a man, I am Godfred Yeboah Dame, the leader of the Bar and the Attorney General of the Republic and I am taking the witness stand.

“You have not disputed that there was a meeting between your good self, Richard Jakpa and the respected Justice of the Supreme Court. You have not denied it. So my question to him, in the absence of any denial on oath from him, which of these stories should be believed?”
