An embattled financier of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Alfred Woyome, has denied ever being a member of the New Patriotic Party as claimed by his former lawyer Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, who is now the General Secretary of the NPP.
Mr. Woyome, who was in court on Thursday to battle the Attorney General over a judgment debt settlement case, described the NPP as a bunch of �mate meho bastards� whom he could never have been part of.
�It is true that my family and all my people have got the UP [United Party] tradition before this mate meho [National Liberation Movement] bastards got out, unfortunately I have gone too far with them but some of them are bastards,� Woyome told Citi News.
He added: �I am a revolutionary person; I was in the revolution of June 4, I came back to this country after being the vice honorary consular of Austria for all those period, being on official duty�so if that means that I am NPP then that is very myopic. �
Mr. Woyome has described as ridiculous assertions by some lawyers, opposition members and political groups such as FONKAR that the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) cannot be trusted to do an independent job because it falls under the Attorney General�s Department and so cannot objectively investigate a matter involving the Attorney General.
He warned elements within the NDC whom he accused of protecting culpable NPP officials to watch out.
The case between the Attorney General and Alfred Woyome has since been adjourned to January 16, 2012.
