The former Member of Parliament for Tema East Constituency, Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover, has spoken out against lawyer Martin Kpebu, who accused President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta of stealing from Ghana’s taxpayers.

Kpebu had made the accusation during an appearance on TV3’s The Keypoints show, alleging that Databank Financial Services Limited, where Ofori-Atta once served as Director, benefited from Ghana’s purchased bonds from the Eurobond market.

In response, Titus-Glover criticized Kpebu in strong language, asking if he had personally witnessed any act of stealing and telling him to manage his own life if he was disappointed with it. He also described the lawyer as a “disappointed lawyer” who was unable to manage his own life and family while daring to call the President a thief.

The former Deputy Transport Minister went on to defend Akufo-Addo and Ofori-Atta, dismissing Kpebu’s accusations as baseless. However, after being urged to apologize by both the show host and the NDC’s Sammy Gyamfi, Titus-Glover eventually retracted his statement about Martin Kpebu.

For the most part, the former MP’s comments were seen as uncalled for and unprofessional, with many Ghanaians criticizing his behavior on social media. Some also accused him of blindly defending the government without properly examining the allegations made by Kpebu.

This incident highlights the importance of respectful discourse in the public sphere, especially when discussing sensitive topics such as corruption and government accountability. Personal attacks and insults only serve to undermine the credibility of those involved and distract from the real issues at hand.
