Jake Obetsebi Lamptey

A High court has ordered government to hand over the keys of bungalow No. 2 Mango Street at the Ridge Residential area to NPP Chairman Jake Obetsebi Lamptey.

Months after the Supreme Court dismissed the case in which, two Ministers, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwah and Edward Omane-Boamah challenged Mr. Obetsebi-Lamptey?s acquisition of the bungalow, he is yet to receive the keys to the property.

The court has subsequently directed government to release the keys to the house which is currently being occupied by Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry Nii Lante Vanderpuije.

The two ministers, in their personal capacities, in 2008 brought a suit against the NPP Chairman over his purchase of bungalow No. 2 at Mango Street, Ridge residential area, Accra, when he was the Chief of Staff at the Presidency.

They were seeking to restrain by order of injunction the Chairman of the Lands Commission of Ghana and the Chief Registrar of Lands at the Land Title Registry from registering the title in the name of Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey.

However the Supreme Court by a majority decision dismissed the case.
