Alfred Woyome insists he is innocent

Embattled businessman Alfred Woyome has in a press briefing revealed that he remains innocent of all charges leveled against him by government.

Addressing a cross-section of the media in Accra after he was seen preventing officials from the police to take over his house (following a court order by the attorney general), Alfred Woyome insisted that he will use all legal means to safeguard his property.

"The contract that they are linking me to, that it is unconstitutional, is a contract between Waterville and government of Ghana. I was not a signatory, my name is not mentioned, I was not there when they signed it and I’m not linked to that contract in any way,” he argued.

Alfred Woyome was paid ¢51 million for helping Ghana raise funds to construct stadia for purposes of hosting the CAN 2008 Nations Cup. However an Auditor General’s report released in 2010 said the amount was paid illegally to the NDC financier.
