Central Regional Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwamena Duncan, strongly believes calls on government to probe further judgment debt paid to construction firm Waterville Holdings Ltd and businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome will come to naught.
Raising doubts about Government’s commitment to hold thorough investigations into the names implicated in the judgment debt scandal, he pointed out that with the level of corruption in the government; the proponents are fighting a worthless course.
“I have heard that they have called on government to probe the people whose names came up. And I tell myself that this is a futile call. It is like pouring water into a basket,” he stated.
He accused President John Mahama over superintending over corruption like his predecessor, adding that the current administration cannot do any due diligence on the case.
“Everywhere you turn. Whether it is Ministry of Youth and Sports, whether it is GYEEDA, whether it is SADA; everywhere, everywhere, corruption has eaten deep into the fabric of this government,” he said.
Kwamena Duncan was commenting on Martin Amidu’s relentless campaign against the payment of questionable judgement debts to individuals and institutions and the obtaining of a Supreme Court ruling ordering the retrieval of over 40 million Euros from Waterville BV Holdings.
Speaking on Peacefm’s flagship programme “Kokrokoo”, he also implicated the Vice President of the Republic, Kwesi Amissah Arthur, claiming that it was under his watch as Governor of the Bank of Ghana that the monies were paid to some claimants of judgment debts.
He was very certain that if government was to go by the rules, the Veep together with former Attorney General and Minister of Education, Betty Mould-Iddrisu “will never go scot free. That’s Dr. Kwabena Duffour; he will prove it. And also, Mrs. Betty Mould Iddrisu and her Deputy, Mr. Barton Oduro and Mr. Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur as the man who was in charge of the safe…They created, they looted and they shared.
“This government; it is not worth its stay in power even a minute or whichever,” he insisted.
