Businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome has denied reports that he holds a new contract form the current government worth GHC 35 million.
On Friday, the pressure group OccupyGhana released a statement that the Ghana government has yet again awarded Mr Woyome a new contract, while he was still in a pending court case about the GHC 51 million he still owed the state.
According to Occupy Ghana, they were "shocked, outraged and appalled to discover this: That while the nation is still reeling from the effect of the Alfred Woyome judgment debt scandal, and the stalled and hesitant attempts by the Attorney-General to execute the judgment of the Supreme Court, the Government of Ghana has, on the blind side of Ghanaians, entered into a “confidential” and potentially lucrative agreement with Woyome, acting through one of his companies, Anator Holding Company Limited."
However, in a press conference earlier Friday, the businessman Alfred Woyome accused the group of being manipulated by unknown forces who have plotted against him since 2008.
While not revealing any details, the businessman said that while he does have a new private partnership, he has not signed any deal worth GHC 35 million with the government, and accused the group of attempting to smear his name.
