The wife of the former CEO of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) Tsatsu Tsikata has attributed the ruling in her husband’s case to God.
Esther Cobbah said that she decided to rather go to God in prayers than believe any man could help her husband in this case.
“It’s been a journey with my God. I told the people of Ghana that God is watching and He has watched and I raise praise to Him and I say: ‘You are a just God’ and the Bible says: ‘We go to man for favour but we go to God for justice’ and He has proven himself. He is a just God. If you don’t know him, seek him,” she told journalists after Wednesday’s hearing.
According to the Court of Appeal, there was a miscarriage of justice when a High Court on June 18, 2008, found him guilty on three counts of wilfully causing financial loss to the state and also for misapplying public property.
Tsikata later told journalists that "justice has been found in the court".
Tsikata was sentenced to a five-year jail term in 2008 by the Kufuor administration for the offence.
The former CEO of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) was later granted presidential pardon.
He, however, filed an appeal on June 30, 2016
