for Personally Profiting from the Woyomegate Scandal
The former Attorney General/Education Minister, Mrs Betty Mould-Iddrisu, maliciously condoned and connived with Alfred Agbesi Woyome, the self-styled NDC bankroller, to cheat Ghana out of GH51 Million.
Reliable information reaching me indicates that Betty Mould-Iddrisu had personal interest in, and stood to profit from, the judgment debt payment to Alfred Agbesi Woyome, the Swindler. Alfred Agbesi Woyome paid Betty Mould-Iddrisu GHC5 Million after cashing the cheque of GHC51 Million, according as revealed by my investigations into the Woyomegate scandal. No wonder this incompetent and myopic woman pressured the Finance Minister, Dr Kwabena Duffour, to pay the money without allowing him time to clear all doubts hovering over the issue.
Betty though a lawyer, lacks foresight. She was more interested in the kickback due her if all went well than considering and critically analysing the repercussions of her nefarious action if ever it leaked to the public domain. Although her criminal dealings she thought would never be revealed under a corrupt and incompetent administration, has however been exposed beyond her wildest comprehension and dreams. She now finds herself in hot waters.
To make matters worse for herself, guilty and confused as she is, she has the shameless audacity to initiate moves to implicate other innocent persons. She hired some equally scoundrels from the NDC folk to embark on reputation-tarnishing crusade against the Finance Minister. Luckily, those she instigated to side with her have now come to the realisation that Betty is as guilty as her sins are scarlet.
I will never cease wondering how at all President Mills could employ such a misfit to occupy such a prestigious position in his government. However, is his government not overflowing with incompetent greedy crooks anyway? Apart from one or two persons in his government with the Finance Minster inclusive, all the rest are just as bad as the President is. They are not only corrupt but also square pegs in round holes.
President Mills should quickly initiate the arrest of Betty Mould-Iddrisu, that gargantuan criminal with insatiable taste for ill-gotten wealth. Ghanaians must compel her to cough up the GHC5 Million she took for a share in the Woyome scandal and jail her for abusing her office. I have more information on the amount of money Betty took that is reliable. I shall reveal the information to embarrass the government if they decide to conceal the truth. Hence, quickly coming out with how much Betty received prior to the Economic and Organisation Crime Office (EOCO) coming out with their findings on her.
It is disgusting to hear Betty insulting and challenging the Opposition NPP for requesting her arrest. Why should Ghanaians not request her arrest after wilfully conniving with Woyome to con Ghana out of a huge sum of money? Can she offer convincing reasons for accepting GHC5 Million from Woyome as a "thank you" for her services rendered him? She knew how she stood to profit by refusing to challenge Woyome's claim in court and by piling up pressure on the Finance Minister to effect payment.
Betty should bury her head in her palms in shame and get ready to go to prison. Very soon, Betty Mould-Iddrisu will be wearing a calico uniform bearing a prison number. No matter how best the NDC service their propaganda machine, Woyome, Betty Mould-Iddrisu, Ebo Barton Oduro, Akyena Bretuo and Alex Segbefia, Carl Wilson, among many others, will see their arse in prison, God willing.
