NPP National Organizer names Supreme Court Justice in Dame-Jakpa-gate


Henry Nana Boakye, alias Nana B, the National Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), has disclosed the identity of the Supreme Court Justice widely referred to in a meeting where the Attorney-General, Godfred Dame, met and discussed issues around a high-profile financial crime trial with an accused person.

In a social media post on May 27, 2024, Nana B stated that the Supreme Court Justice in question was Justice Emmanuel Yonny Kulendi. The A-G through his spokesperson (on May 26, 2024) confirmed the meeting with Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the ongoing ambulance purchase trial that involves Minority Leader Cassiel Ato Forson.

Wilberforce Mensah said the meeting occurred at the residence of an unnamed Supreme Court Justice, a cousin of the accused. He added that Dame was unaware Jakpa would appear at the meeting in April 2024 and that even though they discussed matters relating to Jakpa’s plea-bargaining proposal, the A-G at no point requested Jakpa’s help to implicate Ato Forson.

His post alleged that the opposition National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) claim of having evidence to nail the A-G for unethical and criminal conduct came down to an audio recording from the said meeting. “We are reliably informed that NDC is trying every means to maliciously ‘doctor’ the said tape to exclude portions of the conversation and particularly the voice of the Supreme Court Justice, whose invitation the AG honoured out of courtesy.

“The full-length recording will reveal the AG never requested Richard Jakpa to skew his testimony in any manner as bandied around by the NDC,” he added. Meanwhile, the NDC has dedicated its Moment of Truth press conference scheduled for today (May 28, 2024) to provide its incontrovertible evidence of the A-G’s misdeeds.
