Next Gov’t Should Appoint a ‘Decent Human Being’ As AG – IMANI Boss’ Attack On Godfred Dame Revisited 

President of IMANI Africa Franklin Cudjoe has taken another swipe at Attorney General Godfred Yeboah Dame accusing the latter of lowering the bar of the AG’s office. 

According to Franklin Cudjoe, the next government must a point “decent and fair-minded human being” to replace Godfred Dame. 

“The next govt must ensure a decent and fair-minded human being is Minister for Justice. The Attorney-General position should stand alone and  the government of the day is at liberty to fill that position with lapdogs or real ones.” He wrote. 

Earlier the think tank executive accused , the A-G Godfred Yeboah Dame of giving “illiberal and politically divisive,” suggestions to the executive, an act which impacts the personal liberties of individuals not favoured by the executive. 

Franklin Cudjoe referenced several high-profile cases, including SALL, Daniel Domelevo, Charlotte Osei, James Quayson, and Martin Amidu, as instances where the Attorney-General’s guidance has been questionable. 

“The Attorney-General has been legendary in giving the most illiberal & politically divisive advice to a willing autocratic executive as far as personnel liberties of persons they disrespect dislike is concerned- my SALL, Domelevo, Charlotte Osei, James Quayson, Martin Amidu. Sad,” he posted via X on March 23, 2024.

The office of the AG responded through a spokesman saying the AG did not give any advice in the cases cited by Mr. Cudjoe. 

Ghana’s Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, stated that the lawsuit against President Akufo-Addo’s cabinet reshuffle does not impede the parliamentary approval of new ministerial nominees. 

Consequently, Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, suspended the approval of ministerial nominees pending a suit filed at the Supreme Court.
