NDC Allegations Against Me Unmeritorious, Uncredible- Dame

The Attorney-General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, has shot down accusations levelled against him by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

In a press statement, he said the accusations were “unmeritorious” and lacked “credibility”.

He issued the press statement after the opposition party held a press conference demanding his resignation over a “dubious attempt to cover up serious crimes” by “corrupt government and NPP officials” in the destruction of water bodies and forest reserves through illegal mining.

“Having meticulously analyzed the content of the Attorney-General’s legal opinion {on the report on the work of the Inter-Ministerial Committee Against Illegal Mining (IMCIM), by its Chairman and former Minister for Environment, Science and Technology}, we have come to the irresistible conclusion that the said advice is nothing but a poor attempt to cover-up the complicity of officials of the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government and the ruling NPP in the illicit galamsey trade.”

But the official denies the allegations indicating they are baseless. According to him, the NDC failed to augment their accusations with any evidence.


“In spite of a multitude of allegations and invectives spewed on me by the Communications Officer of the NDC, not a single piece of evidence was furnished by the NDC in proof of any allegation made by Prof. Frimpong-Boateng against any person named in his report. The entire NDC’s press conference was, in point of fact, vitiated by a fraudulent attempt at explaining their orchestrated lies and abuses against me, as they are wont to do.”

He therefore urged the public to disregard the allegation.

“I respectfully urge the public to utterly disregard the discredited assertions of the NDC as unmeritorious and lacking any form of credibility. It is the height of injustice to prosecute people for crimes when there is no evidence. It is for this reason that the Office of Attorney-General did not prosecute either Prof Frimpong-Boateng or his son, Jojo Frimpong-Boateng in the face of allegations by the Adansiman Progressive Association that they were seriously engaged in Galamsey.”
