PETITION FOR RETRIEVAL OF UNLAWFUL JUDGMENT DEBT PAID.
We the Young Patriots and the entire Ghanaian community in UK are taking this opportunity to express our frustration, disappointment and disgust concerning the recent happenings in Ghana under the present government. We have been dumbfounded ever since it became public that over GHC600 million has been paid in the name of judgment debts to people and organisations who have done no work whatsoever for the country. The Economic and Organised Crime Office after President Mills’ instruction has confirmed with a report that one Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome defrauded the nation a tune of GHC51,000,000 and the UK construction company CP has also been given over €94,000,000 as confirmed by the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee.
Ghana, our country is known internationally as a pinnacle in the fight for freedoms and the citadel of democracy in the sub-Saharan Africa. With this posture, most countries have been working so hard to emulate these shining examples of Ghana. Unfortunately this beauty is being destroyed by the recent high level of state sponsored unprecedented corruption under purview of a Law Professor President J.E.A. Mills.
Ghanaian residents here in United Kingdom and Diasporas have serious misgivings about the Mills/Mahama government’s lack of alacrity and commitment to retrieving the gargantuan money their administration has intentionally and unlawfully paid out to some unscrupulous people in Ghana without any justifications.
We Ghanaian residents in the UK are hereby today petitioning your good offices to impress upon the government to retrieve these sums doled out illegally through the conscienceless officials to these people and organisations without any regards to morality.
We, Ghanaians in UK are respectively demanding the following actions to be effected in the on-going corruption cases and trials.
1. Former Attorney General and Minister of Justice Hon. Martin Amidu should be invited as quickly as possible as a prosecution witness in the Alfred Agbesi Woyome’s case due to his knowledge and facts he has on the case.
2. With immediate effect, the President should dismiss the following people for their conspiracy and failing to protect our finance and defend the state in court after their deliberations with Alfred Agbesi Woyome. These unprincipled government officials are Dr. Kwabena Duffour, Minister of Finance & Economic Planning, Mr. Barton Oduro, Deputy Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Valerie Sackey and Alex Segbefia both deputies Chief of Staff,
3. We are urging President Mills as a matter of urgency to compel the Attorney General to prosecute Mrs Betty Mould Iddrisu, Former Attorney General and Minister of Justice for her negligence and lack of due diligence; her deputy Hon. Barton Oduro for his will not to defend the case in court; Dr. Kwabena Duffour Minister of Finance & Economic Planning, for his failure to obey the President’s directives not to pay the money to Mr Alfred Woyome; Mr Neequaye Tetteh Former Chief State Attorney and his spouse for their involvement in this gargantuan crime against the nation
4. For the sake of public confidence in Alfred Woyome’s case, the President should publish and prosecute the names Hon. Martin Amidu sent to him on 6th January 2012 about their involvement in the Woyome gate scandal.
We strongly believe that the retrieval of these monies can be used for infrastructural developments across the length and breath of the country. The failure to adhere to these demands will compel us to petition governments of the international community to exert pressure on the Mills / Mahama government to retrieve the money from these nation wreckers to the people of Ghana.
Thank you for the attention and co-operation to exert pressure on government.
Pp: On behalf of the Young Patriots - UK branch.
