Please Protect My Human Rights — Alfred Agbesi Woyome Tells President Akufo-Addo

1 min

Following a raid on his house by police and military officers during which a gun was reportedly pointed at his wife, Alfred Agbesi Woyome is calling on the President to ensure his fundamental human rights are respected.
According to the embattled businessman, we are not living in a military dictatorship for his house to be broken into like that when the case involving the repayment of the Ghc 51.2m judgement debt is still in court.
The Supreme Court of Ghana have given an order for properties of Woyome to be valued as part of efforts to retrieve the Ghc 51.2m judgement debt he owes the state.
Woyome, however, has appealed the ruling at the African Human Rights Courts and believes the efforts should stop until that case has been heard.
“The President did not come through coup d’etat [so] he should rein in on his people,” Woyome told Joy News Tuesday, pleading for his and his family’s human rights to be respected.
“If the Constitution still gives me rights to seek justice until alI those avenues have been exhausted, nobody should disrespect my human rights,” he added.
