Deputy minister-designate for the local government ministry, John Oti Bless has alleged that the late Jake Obetsebi Lamptey died of greed and the urge to steal state properties.
"Look at Jake Obestebi Lamptey and how he acquired the state bungalow, if that property was his would he have bought it for that price?...and when this issue was taken to court, judges ruled in his favour. If the late Jake Obetsebi Lamptey had left the bungalow for the state or allowed the state to sell it construct some low-cost building for the poor maybe God would have saved him and not allow him to die,” he alleged on Montie FM.
Oti Bless recently got nominated by president Mahama and vetted by the appointments committee of Parliament. The late National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party died on March 20 in the United Kingdom after an unknown ailment.
