- Alfred Woyome has asked the former president Rawlings to stop peddling lies about him.
- He noted that all what the former president says about him are falsehood and nothing new.
Alfred Woyome has denied stories by former president Rawlings in his recent interview that he Woyome collected monies from some European groups in his name.
This comes after Mr. Rawlings in an interview alleged that the embattled businessman took some €500,000 from the Europeans.
President Rawlings noted that he is glad that the NPP was able to respond to Woyome, who was cleared of his criminal tendencies. Mr. Rawlings also denied knowledge of being aware of any such millions of dollars he, Woyome has spent on the party. He added that he is aware of the half-a-million euros, Woyome, took from a foreign European group in my name.
“I never saw a penny of it. The one-and-a half million euros he took from that same group, supposedly on behalf of the party, he’s got to account for it,” Rawlings told Nana Aba.
In a statement issued by Woyome, he said Mr. Rawlings is deliberately telling lies about him and that what he is saying is no news as it was denied by Ingeborg Smith, the Honorary Consul of Austria to Ghana. Mr. Woyome added that, the consulate said that they don’t have such an amount in their Consulate and they don’t run a charity company.
“I can’t receive money on anybody’s behalf by misrepresentation; why is he repeating the same lies at this time,” Mr Woyome asked.
The anguish Mr. woyome noted that he was never in Ghana during the entire constitutional regime of the former president, Flt.Lt. J.J. Rawlings until five months to the tail end of his regime. He added that he remembers the former president make these same remarks on the 12th of March, 2015. He added that no matter what whoever says, God is the one who rules in the affairs of men.
Mr. Woyome made news when reports alleged that he had squandered state funds, until he was recently cleared of all charges.
