Supreme Court orders auction of Woyome’s properties

Justice Alfred Benin of Ghana’s Supreme Court has ordered for the sale of property of embattled businessman, Alfred Agbesie Woyome to defray part of the judgement debt he fraudulently received from the state.

It would be recalled that Mr Woyome was paid GH¢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 opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) financier. There have been many legal tussles to retrieve the money.

Former AG, Martin Amidu, however, proceeded to the Supreme Court as a private citizen and managed to retrieve for the state millions of cedis said to have been paid illegally to Mr Woyome.

The judges stayed a verdict on the Woyome case Amidu brought before them because the matter was pending before the High Court.

He later went on a review and had the court rule in his favour but Woyome was asked to refund the GH¢51 million to the state with moves by the AG to sell off his property in order to offset part of the debt which has since been granted

The properties valued at GH¢20 million include the following;

1. Two (2) executive buildings located at Trassaco in Accra

2. Office complex of Anator Holdings, a company owned by Mr. Woyome

3. Residential building at Caprice

4. Residential building at Abelemkpe

5. Mining quarry owned by Mr. Woyome in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
