Alfred Woyome Pays Ghc 4m To Government – Promises To Pay Rest Of Ghc 51m Via Installments


Businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome has paid back a sum of Ghc 4m to the state, the first step in paying back the Ghc 51.2 judgement debt wrongly paid him, as ordered by the Supreme Court.

The state had been having a torrid time enforcing the Supreme Court’s judgement, and met significant backlash when the Attorney General decided to withdraw a motion meant to compel Woyome to reveal his current assets – a move many saw as killing all interest by the state in retrieving the money.

However, according to a report from the state owned Daily Graphic, the Attorney General discontinued the case because she had received a check from the camp of the businessman. In a letter dated November 7 2016, the state acknowledged receipt of a check for Ghc 4m from lawyers for the embattled businessman.

The rest of the money, Woyome said, would be paid via Ghc 5m instalments every quarter – to start from April 1, 2017.

It now remains to be seen how genuine such a move is – the timing of the date and the lukewarm nature with which the NDC has pursued this case so far perhaps indicates that if they win reelection – they might never pursue the rest even if Woyome does not pay. Only time will tell if we would ever get that judgement debt back- but until we do, remain skeptical.
