President Mahama has revealed that the embattled attorney general, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, has done a "phenomenal job" in saving Ghana from judgement debts worth billions of dollars.
During the Wednesday night presidential debate on GBC, the president argues that the AG deserves a national honors for her outstanding performance.
“I think the Attorney General has done a phenomenal job. I mean if you look at the amount of money she’s saved us from judgement debt, that lady deserves a national honour,” President Mahama said.
The comments by Mahama follows several calls on the AG to resign after her failed attempts to retrieve the judgement debts from embattled businessman, Alfred Woyome.
Meanwhile, Mahama has described the judgement debt situation in Ghana as a “very sorry state of affairs” arguing that in most of the judgement cases that have come up, it was discovered that “some people have connived to try and rip government off”.
