There is a proverb about not putting the fox in charge of the hen house, and rightly so – because the Fox would have no compunction in eating every single one of the hens even as he’s supposed to protect them.
The experience the people of Ghana has had with the businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome is far from pleasant, what with him illegally receiving Ghc 51.2m and refusing to pay it back despite a Supreme Court order to that effect.
Yet as government was dragging its feet in court, pretending they were interested in retrieving the money from Woyome, he had actually been handed another contract!
OccupyGhana raised the alarm bells with a statement Thursday revealing the deal. Why would government hand Woyome any deal in the midst of struggling with him to recover our money he had taken?
Documentary evidence now seems to back up Occupy’s claims. Anator Holding Companies, which belong to the businessman, entered into a contract with the Ministry of Transport, then headed by Dzifa Attivor of Smartty’s fame, a Ghc 35m contract to “develop deep seaports (including) industrial parks and green townships” in Ghana.
Below are some photos of the contract as seen in the media lately, confirming this government does indeed care little for the people apart from filling their own stomachs.
