Former Deputy Communications Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, has hit back at the Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Dame, after the latter accused John Dramani Mahama of not co-operating with investigations into the Airbus scandal.

According to Kwakye Ofosu, the NPP government lacks the moral right to demand accountability from Mahama since the Akufo-Addo-led administration is the epitome of corruption.

He maintained that allegations levelled against Mahama on the Airbus scandal is nothing but diversionary propaganda developed by the government, as such, must be disregarded by Ghanaians.

His rage comes after the Deputy Attorney General advised Mahama to publicly come out with his stance on the controversial Airbus scandal since the deal happened under his administration.

“Many of the senior government officials involved in the purchase of the aircraft are still around but continue to maintain deafening silence to the exquisite findings of the crown court in the UK. At least there was a sitting vice president who transitioned to a Presidency while maintaining his silence contrary to the tenets of accountability, he is rather remarkably campaigning for votes from the same people whom he does not want to be accountable to on the airbus scandal”, Godfred Dame said.

Responding to Mr. Dame’s claims in an interview, the former aide to ex-president Mahama said “His pronouncement constitutes nothing but diversionary propaganda which must be promptly dismissed. This is just a tactic from a government that is wallowing in abject corruption. Where did this government derive their sudden quest for accountability and probity? Has the President told us what happened in the Australian scandal, has he told us what went on in the PDS deal. There are issues in front of them but they are not able to disclose information yet they chose to jump unto the propaganda bandwagon and make claims that are completely false”.

Kwakye Ofosu further added that “It was a specific case of or allegation made against any specific Ghanaian official for which reason anybody can come forward… I dismiss entirely, the innuendos and insinuations of the Deputy Attorney General because they are not founded. He points to something that doesn’t exist. In any event, is it not this same government that issued a statement that that matter be referred to the Special Prosecutor? One would think then they respect the independence of the Special Prosecutor and therefore allow him to conduct investigations into the matter and come out with his conclusions”.
