The former Attorney General and Minister of Justice Martin Amidu is calling on the President-elect Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to expedite action in collecting back Ghana’s monies given to embattled businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome.
He urged the President-elect not to hesitate in collecting the judgement debt wrongly paid to Mr Woyome.
Mr Amidu said the election of Nana Addo is a period of enthusiasm and hope for Ghanaians and people in the sub-region.
In his congratulatory message to Nana Addo, he expressed hope that Nana Addo’s leadership will make positively impact the lives of ordinary Ghanaians.
‘I have no doubt that the President-elect is aware that the people of Ghana expect that his new Government will take up the urgent responsibility of getting back our over GHC51.2million back with the accruing interest looted by the outgoing Government for its lootee, Alfred Agbesi Woyome, alongside the Waterville Holing (BVI) Ltd loot of over €47million also with all the accruing interest both ordered to be refunded to the Republic of Ghana by the Supreme Court on 14th June 2013 and 29th July 2014 respectively. Your victory is partly the result of the mandate and confidence entrusted to you by the people of Ghana to get our monies back to the Republic of Ghana in the shortest possible time,’ Mr Amidu said.
‘He added ‘It is my personal prayer that upon your assumption of office on 7th January 2017 you will as the President of Ghana with your Government, and the new Parliament of Ghana reciprocate the trust and confidence reposed in you at these elections by getting our Woyome and Waterville looted monies back in the shortest possible time. May you use your wisdom and diligence to carry along all Ghanaians including those who did not vote for you in order to achieve the common purpose of rebuilding a strong, motivated and united Ghana that will demonstrate the expected leadership on the African continent and the world at large. May God guide, guard and bless you now and forever more to always’.
