Member of Parliament for the La Dadekotopon Constituency, Hon. Nii Amasah Namoale, claims he would have sued government in court for more money if he were in the shoes of Alfred Agbesi Woyome.
The latter illegally received GHC 51million from the State in 2010 for his role in the construction of stadia for the CAN 2008 tournament held in Ghana. And for this reason, the Supreme Court, on July 29, 2014, ordered him to refund the money to the state on the grounds that he got the money out of unconstitutional and invalid contracts between the state and Waterville Holdings Limited in 2006 for the construction of stadia for CAN 2008.
But speaking on UTV’s Adekye Nsroma, the MP for La Dadekotopon urged Mr. Woyome to go to court and sue the state for failing to present his contract to Parliament before the money was paid to him.
He accused the New Patriotic Party for masterminding this move when they were power and wondered why they failed to do the just thing by bringing the contract to parliament.
“If the NPP had brought the contract to parliament before the payment was made, the Supreme Court wouldn’t have directed Woyome to refund the money to the state…I wonder what influenced the NPP not to bring the contract to Parliament”, Hon. Nii Amasah Namoale said.
