In response to Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover’s remarks regarding private attorney Martin Kpebu, Sammy Gyamfi, the National Communications Officer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has retaliated. Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover was a former member of parliament for the Tema East Constituency.
Because Kpebu criticised President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta for “stealing” from Ghana’s taxpayers, Titus-Glover referred to Kpebu as a “disappointed lawyer” who is unable to manage his own life and law firm.
Gyamfi, who was disappointed with Titus-Glover, defended Kpebu’s name and his contributions to the Ghanaian judicial system.
According to a political programme that was viewed, there aren’t any crimes in Ghana right now that can’t be released on bond. For this, we may thank Martin Kpebu. Martin Kpebu has done his time; go to the website and read Martin Kpebu v. Attorney General.
Later, Gyamfi charged that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was using fabrications to harm John Mahama’s reputation and insisted that the NPP must accept criticism.
In an interview, Gyamfi said, “I wouldn’t have believed it if someone had told me that day would come when an NPP communicator, not least Titus-Glover, would fight someone for criticising the president of Ghana for earning money illegally.”
Gyamfi questioned Titus-Glover’s justification of President Akufo-Addo as well, citing the president’s unsubstantiated claim that Mahama had stolen $10 million to print diaries.
“The Nana Akufo-Addo that Titus-Glover is defending is the one who labelled former President Mahama a thief because he spent $10 million on the printing of diaries and has yet to produce any proof. And now Titus-Glover claims that Martin Kpebu failed to successfully run his law practise and that he was a failure in life? Gyamfi asked a query.
Gyamfi stressed Kpebu’s significant contributions to Ghana’s legal system in his closing remarks, saying, “Even if Martin Kpebu stops practising law today, the children of the next generation will still come and read about his invaluable contributions, if nothing at all our criminal legal justice systems in Ghana. If he’d said what Martin Kpebu said was false, I wouldn’t have questioned him. but to argue that his life has been messed up…eii!!!”
