Deputy local government minister nominee, O.B Amoah, has confessed before the appointments committee that he never took money from embattled businessman, Alfred Woyome.
It may be recalled that the embattled minister nominee, the then deputy minister for youth and sports, was accused of taking the said funds from Alfred Woyome during an agreement Waterville Holdings limited in 2005 entered with the then government.
“Mr. Chairman, never. GH¢75,00? I’ve never seen that amount in my life. I think it was an attempt to indict the NPP administration as far as the stadium construction was concerned. But thankfully, because some of us have been in that ministry, we were able to set the record straight.” “If you look at the Supreme Court judgment, or even the Justice Appau commission report, nowhere was OB Amoah or the NPP indicted in that matter,” he argued.
Meanwhile, the fate of Alfred Woyome remains on the balance as attorney general, Gloria Akufo, has committed to pursing all cases regarding the agreement government entered with his resulting in the judgement debt. But so far, Alfred Woyome has committed to refunding the judgement debts so as to forestall any form of agitations.
