It all happened when the judge superintending Woyome’s petition described it as lacking merit.

What this means is that government now has the power to embark on a mad hunt down for the properties of Woyome so as to value and sell them off.

It has been three years since government has engaged in a legal tussle with Woyome after the wrongful payment of 51.2 million cedis to him by the erstwhile NDC government.

So far, Alfred Woyome has only paid four million cedis - an amount which deputy Attorney-General Godfred Dame as "paltry with remaining payments not forthcoming".
