A leading member of pressure group, OccupyGhana has described as toxic, a GHc 35 million agreement between the government of Ghana and Anator Holding Company Limited owned by embattled businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome.

Ace Ankomah, who spoke to 3FM Sunrise morning show host, Winston Amoah, also contended that the engagement is fictitious. The businessman is struggling to repay GH51 million judgment debt he wrongfully benefitted from the state.

“At the time when we are in court with this gentleman over monies he’s taken from us and refused to pay inspite of a Supreme Court agreement; when we are retrying him for defrauding us, we’re still meeting with him and signing another contract? “The frame work agreement of this contract was signed barely three weeks before the President said if he were a military dictator, he would have arrested Alfred Woyome and locked him till he proved his innocence.

“What is worse is that this so called 24% stake in his business ideas which is now being marketed to SNNIT as if government has agreed to take that stake is not in the framework agreement. “Once he got the framework agreement, suddenly government is being told that it has an obligation with respect to 24%. I think this framework agreement is just fluff and wool.

He is only defrauding us and that is what we are fighting”. OccupyGhana maintains that government has entered into a GHc 35 million contract with Anator Holding Company Limited, one of the companies of Alfred Woyome. The anti-corruption Crusaders insist government’s latest deal with the embattled business man is only aimed at defrauding Ghanaians.
