Former Deputy Sports Minister in the erstwhile Kufuor administration, O. B. Amoah has rubbished clamours for the arrest and prosecution of some ministers who served under the former Kufuor administration in connection with the Waterville judgment debt saga.

Ghanas Supreme Court recently ruled unanimously that the foreign company pays back 25 million euros it received from the Government of Ghana as compensation for what the company claimed was an illegal abrogation of a contract with the state.

Waterville was involved in the construction of some stadia in Ghana ahead of the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations which was hosted by the West African country.

Following the Supreme Court ruling, pro-government pressure group, Inside Ghana, called for the immediate arrest and prosecution of former Chief of Staff Kwadwo Mpiani, former Attorney General Joe Ghartey and Mr. Amoah over their involvement in the award and abrogation of the said contract amongst other international contracts which the group claimed were either illegally awarded or terminated during their tenure of office.

In its statement signed by Convener George Spencer Quaye, Inside Ghana said: At the heart of the said judgments is the way and manner senior members of the erstwhile Kufuor administration irresponsibly awarded such contracts without recourse to article 181(5) of the 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana.

However the Akwapim South Member of Parliament has in an interview with XYZ News described the clamours for his arrest as well as the arrest and prosecution of former Ministers who served in the Kufuor Government as political noise.

As for the noise, they can make the noise that arrest A or B but the most important thing is that the highest court of the land has gone into the matter and theyve come to the conclusion that there was no contract and that is what weve been saying from day one, O. B. Amoah told XYZ News.
