Host of Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV, Paul Adom-Otchere has reacted to the recent developments in the ambulance case involving Minority Leader Dr Cassiel Ato Forson and the state, being represented by Attorney General Godfred Dame.

Dr. Ato Forson, a former Deputy Finance Minister, is facing trial for his alleged involvement in the procurement of faulty ambulances for Ghana. This case has sparked public conversations, with some individuals calling for the Attorney General’s resignation.

The Attorney General has insisted that the 3rd accused, Richard Jakpa, had sent letters requesting a plea bargain, which had not been accepted.

However, the NDC countered these claims by playing a tape during a press conference on Tuesday, May 28. The NDC General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, stated that Jakpa never requested a plea bargain.

Reacting to this, Mr Adom-Otchere noted that the audio being circulated by the NDC is doctored. According to him, due to this reason, the opposition party has failed to tender in the document in court as evidence.

He noted that Mr Jakpa’s voice is so audible in the audio because a voiceover has been included in the said audio.

“Jakpa did a voiceover which has been added that is why his voice is very loud. That is why the tape has taken that long. From last Thursday Sammy Gyamfi said they had it, it is today (Tuesday) that they bringing it. They didn’t tender it in court. They know that the tape will not stand the test of court because in court, there are forensics and when they tender it, the forensic experts will come.”

“If the NDC that this tape will help their Ato Forson case in court, they should tender it,” he added.

Meanwhile, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has stated that the alleged audio tape involving Attorney General Godfred Dame and Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the ambulance case, released by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has been tampered with.

At a press conference on Tuesday, May 28, NPP National Organizer Henry Nana Boakye (Nana B) described the tape as distorted and manipulated, claiming it was “cut and pieced together” by the NDC to create a misleading impression.
