The Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Godfred Dame, has come under fire from the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s national communications officer, Sammy Gyamfi, for allegedly failing to pay the insurance fee for government cars assigned to his office.
The premium, valued at $200,000, was for 92 fleets of cars assigned to the ministry, according to a Ghanaian Times story.
The admission was made by the Chief Director, Suweibatu Adam, during her Wednesday appearance before the Public Accounts Committee.
In response to the story, Mr. Gyamfi wrote on Facebook that Mr. Dame should first follow the law before targeting others.
“The reckless Attorney General and Minister for Injustice, Godfred Yeboah Dame must first take the log out of his own eye before throwing his weight about all over the place.
“The Office of the Attorney-General and Ministry of Justice has failed to pay insurance premium of GH200,000 for its fleet of 92 official vehicles,” he posted.
This comes after the outspoken lawmaker warned Mr. Dame to exercise prudence while in office.
Since taking office, the AG, in his opinion, has been “prosecuting and persecuting political opponents.”
Mr. Gyamfi stated that the NDC will address the media to discuss Mr. Dame’s performance.
