Businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome has been unraveling the behind the scenes of his predicament and legal tussle with the government of Ghana for weeks on CITI TV’s Face to face program.
In his latest revelations, the embattled businessman who is at the centre of a wrongful judgements debt payment worth Ghc 51 Million accused government officials for wanting to have his properties for themselves.
Woyome said the refusal of government to unfreeze his assets and shares is part of the reasons he had not paid the money which he claimed he could have paid in two months. He further blamed his prolong legal woes on a scheme by some government officials to satisfy themselves.
“I have ensured that what they should do, they do it according to law. We saw that there was insider trading and people among them [Government] want my properties for themselves,” Woyome said.
Alfred Agbesi Woyome mentioned the National Security Minister Ken Dapaah as one of the interested parties who is after his property. He said: “That is the case I have taken to the Human Rights Court under Article 33 and when they saw that we were there, then the auctioneer had to write a funny letter to Kan Dapaah who also has a personal interest in this matter. Kan Dapaah now using executive power writes to the Attorney General to go court and change the judgement to favour us to seize his properties.”
The Supreme Court ordered Woyome to refund the money paid him but the businessman claimed government officials are not interested in retrieving the money. He said the officials have refused to engage him to discuss a repayment plan for the Ghc 51 Million.
