- He says Akufo-Addo and his Supreme Court allies are dragging Woyome to court on July 24, to frustrate late Mill's anniversary celebration
NDC’s Deputy General Secretary Koku Anyidoho, is alleging that, the Akufo-Addo administration is having secret plots to disrupt the upcoming 5th anniversary event of the late President, Prof J. E. A Mills.
The Supreme Court has directed an embattled NDC financier, Alfred Agbesi Woyome to appear in court for oral examination by the Attorney-General.

The oral examination which was set for June 29 suffered a setback after Woyome’s lawyers challenge the ruling for an adjournment.
The court appearance eventually settled on July 24 which happens to be a day President John Mills died.
The Supreme Court in a couple of weeks ago granted a request by the Attorney General's Department to question the businessman whether he owns some properties and has the means to offset a 51.2 million cedis debt owed the state
The court will also examined Mr Woyome on how he spent the whopping money wrongfully paid him by the state under the late President Mills.
With this development, the Founder and Executive Director of Atta Mills Institute, Koku Anyidoho says he suspects, asking the embattled businessman to make court appearance July 24, is a clear and deliberate plot by the NPP to frustrate activities of his institute and the NDC in honoring the memory of their late leader.
“It is very deliberate and orchestrated by Akufo-Addo and his agents at the Supreme Court to have fixed the hearing...to take the shine of the anniversary but it will not work," Anyidoho told the media in an interview.
Mr Anyidoho insisted that, the NPP’s leader and his allies know very well the NDC will capitalize on the anniversary celebration to rally and strengthen its support base hence the attempt to divert attention.
The outspoken NDC executive member served noticed that, his party leadership will deliberately defy any attempt by the NPP administration to block them from celebrating Mills’ 5-years anniversary in grand style.
“There’s no doubt that President Mills' character brought us victory in the 2008 election and it is his strong legacy that made us win the 2012 elections as well,” he said.
President Mills died on 24 July 2012 at the 37 Military Hospital in Accra, three days after his 68th birthday. Though the cause of death is still unknown to the public, he had been suffering from throat cancer and had been to the US for medical treatment but died in few days.
Announcing his death, his office told Ghanaians he died hours after being taken ill, but a presidential aide then contested he had complained of pains the day prior to his death.
