The National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) are set to hold separate press conferences today, Tuesday, May 28, regarding the ongoing ambulance trial involving Minority Leader Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson.

This follows claims made by Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the case, alleging that the Attorney-General had previously approached him to assist in building a case against the former Deputy Finance Minister.

However, a statement signed by Deputy Attorney-General Alfred Tuah Yeboah refuted these claims, stating that Mr. Jakpa had instead proposed plea bargaining to the Republic through the Attorney-General on multiple occasions, which had not been accepted.

The NDC maintains it has evidence to support Mr. Jakpa’s allegations against Attorney-General Godfred Yeboah Dame and plans to present it publicly today.

The NDC press conference, scheduled for 2:00 PM, will be addressed by National Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketia and will include the presentation of a video.

Later, at 4:00 PM, the NPP will hold its briefing, led by private legal practitioner Frank Davies. The NPP intends to address what it describes as a desperate attempt by the NDC to protect Ato Forson from accountability.
