Showdown!!! Attorney General Grills Woyome Today

The Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame is set to orally examine businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome in the controversial GHC51.2 million judgment debt payment.The oral examination is to enquire how the businessman spent the money and whether he has  any property to defray the GHC51.2million he was paid by the state as judgment debt.The examination will also delve into issues pertaining to whether he owes any debts, and the manner in which he used the judgment debt money paid him.Justice Alfred Benin, set July 24 for the oral examination after he dismissed an application by Mr Woyome challenging the State’s motion seeking an order to orally examine him on how he spent the 51 million cedis paid to him illegally.Mr Woyome was paid the amount being judgement debt after he alleged that the state wrongfully abrogated an agreed with him to help in the raising funds to construct stadia for the hosting of the 2008 African Cup of Nations.But the Auditor General’s report released in 2010 disputed the claims saying the amount was paid illegally to him. The Supreme Court therefore in 2014 ordered Mr Woyome to pay back the money to the state after a former Attorney General, Martin Amidu,  had challenged the legality of the payments in court.But due to delays in retrieving the money, the Supreme Court unanimously granted the Attorney-General clearance to execute the court’s judgment, ordering Mr. Woyome to refund the cash to the state.Call our Editor on 0209391902 or click here and inform us via Whatsapp.You could equally email your stories or articles to and we’ll surely put them online
