Lawyer for Businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome, David Annan has said it will head to court to institute a legal action against the Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akomea.

The Communications Director in statement said, it is horrified and saddened by the report that the Attorney General is not able to pursue anymore the retrieval of taxpayers monies paid to Mr. Alfred Woyome, as far back as 2010.

The NPP has however, charged President John Mahama and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to account for monies paid to Mr Woyome or face series of street protests.

According to him, it will hit the streets with Ghanaians if government fails to do so.

"The NPP cannot let this corruption and wanton loss of taxpayers’ monies just go by. We demand that President Mahama and his government retrieve the full value of our monies otherwise the party intends to lead Ghanaians in street protests," he said.

But Mr Annan in an interview with Accra-based Class FM said, "We are going to take Nana Akomea to court for that press statement he has issued. There are couple of guys who are already facing contempt charges in court and actually Nana Akomea should have been the third respondent but for certain reasons we left him out of it but it looks as if he himself willingly included himself in a future court action and I can promise him, he can take that from me, he can take that to the bank that we will take him to court for the press statement and the words that he has put in that press statement."

"He is saying because a Supreme Court judge used the words create, loot and share that means that my client is guilty of corruption or some sort of robbery or some form of criminal act. It appears the NPP are determined to hang their coat on the peg of what the Supreme Court judge said. Now that case was a civil case, it had nothing to do with any criminal matter and therefore if you keep importing criminality into a civil matter, when the matter was decided on article 181 (5) and not on any provision on any criminal act, Act 29, what you are doing is courting trouble for yourself and we have made it quite clear to them several times that they should cease and desist. However it appears they intend to use this Woyome thing as a campaign strategy. Let me assure them it will fail. We will make sure the reputation of our client is adequately protected by the courts," David Annan stated.

Below is the full statement from the NPP:

PRESIDENT MAHAMA AND NDC MUST  ACCOUNT FOR OUR WOYOME MONIES OR  BE SHOWN THE RED CARD

The NPP is horrified and saddened by the report that the Attorney General is not able to pursue anymore the retrieval of taxpayers monies paid to Mr. Alfred Woyome, as far back as 2010.

The NDC government itself as far back as 2009 has admitted the payments to Mr. Woyome were wrong, unjustified and undeserved.

But no NDC official involved in this gargantuan loss of taxpayer’s monies has been punished or prosecuted.

Per the solo efforts of Mr. Martin Amidu, the Supreme Court in 2014 ordered that the monies should be retrieved, describing the payment as a scheme to create, loot and share taxpayers’ monies.

President Mahama and his government did not seek an order for payment with interest despite the Supreme Court ruling.

Despite this, two years after the order for even the greatly devalued ghc52.8 million, president mahama has not managed to retrieve even a PESEWAS of taxpayers’ monies from Mr Woyome.

What little hope Ghanaians have that our monies will be retrieved has been dashed by the withdrawal of the Attorney  General from further pursuit of the retrieval of the monies.

The NPP cannot let this corruption and wanton loss of taxpayers monies just go by.

We demand that President Mahama and his government retrieve the full value of our monies otherwise the party intends to lead Ghanaians in  street protests Create, loot and share cannot be rewarded President Mahama must account for our monies or  be shown the red card.  

NANA AKOMEA
