The Supreme Court on July 29, 2014 ordered Woyome to refund GH¢51.2 million to the state on the grounds that he got the money out of unconstitutional and invalid contracts between the state and Waterville Holdings Limited in 2006 for the construction of stadia for CAN 2008 - a development which has seen Woyome contest the verdict at the International Court of Arbitration.
