The man at the centre of GH? 51 million judgment debt brouhaha, Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome, has once again stated his innocence saying he knows he would be vindicated and the continued belief of his innocence would not have been in vain.
Mr. Woyome made this known in a press release, titled ‘a note of appreciation’ issued yesterday in Accra.
“Whilst rejoicing about the fresh opportunities that this year shall provide for humankind, I deem it necessary to express my heartfelt appreciation to all who have continued to support me throughout the ordeal visited upon me by certain individuals, using some arms of the State’s Security apparatus,” he noted.
According to him, the past year, 2012, has been a difficult year for him, for his businesses, and for the thousands of Ghanaians who are dependent upon his industry for their livelihood.
He said what started in the last quarter of 2011 has been stretched beyond the boundaries of reason and it is only because of the mercies of God that, he, his household and all the afore-mentioned dependants [both direct and indirect] have not been consumed.
“I, therefore, render thanks, first, to the Almighty God whose I am and whom I serve, for his care and consummate benevolence to me. I thank all the Religious Leaders who have continued praying with me and assuring me of God’s vindication in due season. I appreciate the love shown by several traditional rulers from all over the country. Several Ghanaians from all walks of life, from all tribes, from every creed and from diverse political persuasions have consistently shown their concern for the obvious cruelty meted out to me: To all of you, I say a big “Thank You”. Mr. Woyome appreciated.
He further stated that, inasmuch as we cannot determine the pace at which the ongoing proceedings in court [relating to the Judgment Debt paid to my good self] shall proceed, the last couple of sittings have begun to reveal the truth about the whole affair; and he believes that, in the soonest possible time, he would be vindicated.
He has therefore urged all to remain steadfast in their belief in the Rule of Law and in the fairness of the Almighty God. Stating, he knows that, in the final analysis, which his enemies and detractors meant for evil shall work out for our good and all shall have cause to celebrate a wonderful victory, by the power of God.
