Businessman, Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome says he is not troubled by the appointment of Martin Amidu as the Special Prosecutor.
Reports were rife that the beleaguered businessman fainted right after the announcement of Martin Amidu as the Special Prosecutor on Thursday.
A statement issued on behalf of Mr Woyome by his aide, Reginald Seth Dogbey on Friday cited TV3 as starting the “false” reports and demanded an unqualified apology from the television station.
“It must also be on record that Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome who understands and appreciates the rule of law, and respects the 1992 Republican Constitution of Ghana is not bothered about Martin Alamisi Amidu becoming the Special Prosecutor,” the statement read in part.
The anti-corruption campaigner and Ghana’s first Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has been on warpath with Mr. Woyome vis-à-vis the infamous 51.2million cedis judgment debt saga.
In his private capacity, Amidu in 2014 won a judgment against Woyome for a refund of the 51.2million cedis.
This was after the state appeared unwilling to pursue the businessman after the 2010 Auditor-General report had found the payment of the 51.2million in the judgment debt case as wrong.
