Woyome’s Office: NPP Behaving Like “School Kids”.
The Office of Business man Alfred Woyome has described the Minority in Parliament as a bunch of “school boys” who are hungry for public attention.
The reaction of Mr Woyome’s Office follows a press conference held by the Minority on Wednesday asking Mr Woyome not to touch the Ghc51.2 million paid to him as judgment debt by the Government, until the Court hearing the propriety of the payment rules on the matter.
According to the Minority, the recent Supreme Court ruling ordering foreign company Waterville Holdings to return to the Government of Ghana, some 25 million Euros it received as judgment debt.
The Plaintiff in that case is former Attorney General Martin Amidu, who jointly sued Waterville, Austro Invest, Mr. Woyome and the Attorney General over the matter.
The Supreme Court deferred ruling on the reliefs sought by Mr. Amidu as far as Mr Woyome’s judgment award is concerned, pending a ruling by the Commercial Division of the High Court which is hearing different aspects of that same matter.
The Minority therefore said Mr. Woyome must put a freeze on the Ghc51.2 million pending the ruling on his case.
Reacting angrily to the Minority’s suggestion however, Mr. Woyome’s Spokesperson, Seth Dogbe questioned the logic and legality of the Minority’s suggestion.
“I find their press conference and statement very unfortunate because these people are supposed to be lawmakers. They are supposed to believe in the rule of law”.
