Ambulance case: It’s still possible a deal could be reached between parties, says Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo

The Minority Leader, Cassiel Ato Forson is in court for causing financial of €2.3 million to the state in the importation of ambulances to the country

Private legal practitioner Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo has weighed in on the ongoing Ghana ambulance case, suggesting a possible resolution between Attorney General Godfred Yeboah Dame and the accused persons.

Speaking on The Forum on Asaase 99.5 on Saturday (22 June), Samoa Addo clarified a misconception surrounding the case. He emphasised that the state is not accusing Ato Forson of stealing the €2.3 million linked to the controversial ambulance deal.

“Causing financial loss to the state is not about somebody stealing,” Samoa Addo explained. “Nobody has said and I want everybody to understand, nobody has said that Ato Forson has stolen any money. What the state is saying is that his action has led to the loss of state funds [and] that he should have exercised better discretion in the use of his powers as a deputy minister.”

Samoa Addo addressed the potential for a deal, stating. “Some people have the misconception that the state is accusing Dr. Ato Forson of stealing €2.3 million. That is not it, and so if that is not it and somebody is offering that amount as a panacea to the issue and he’s at that point as Minority Leader, I don’t think it is impossible for a deal to be had.”

He further emphasised the importance of prioritising the client’s interests, regardless of personal feelings towards the Attorney General. “You may not like Godfred Dame but at the end of the day, your interest is to get your client off and that should be the primary interest of yourself and not about calling people names.”
