Citizen Kofi: I Have Nothing To Hide Over Woyome Case

Dr. Kofi Amoah, who headed the Local Organising Committee of the CAN 2008 tournament, has reiterated his readiness to appear before any public inquiry to defend his role in the award of contracts for the construction of stadia ahead of the continental showpiece. Dr. Amoah and other ministers under the erstwhile Kufuor administration have been under investigation by the Economic and Organised Crimes Office (EOCO) since the emergence of the controversial GhC51 million judgment debt paid to businessman, Alfred Woyome. They have since objected to EOCO’s actions leading to a ruling in their favour on Thursday by a Fast Track High Court in Accra. The court held that the EOCO is not the right platform to investigate the matter. Dr. Amoah told Citi News now that clear rules have been set by the court’s decision he is willing to assist with the investigation. “I personally have nothing to hide but I think that as a nation, we have the constitution, which is the highest law of the land and if there is a provision in the constitution to cater for certain issues and in this case, reports submitted to Parliament must be dealt with by the parliament sub-committee, then that is where I am willing to go and give my evidence,” Dr. Amoah declared. He said he is glad that the court had recognised his right not to be dragged before any investigative body other than Parliament.
