The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) seems to be in a joyous mood following a Supreme Court ruling against embattled businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome.

A Supreme Court judge, Justice Alfred Benin, has ordered that several properties belonging to the businessman be sold to offset some 51 Million Ghana Cedis judgement debt owed the State.

The properties are two executive buildings located at Trassaco in Accra, the office complex of Anator Holdings, a company owned by Woyome, two residential buildings at Caprice and Abelemkpe, both suburbs in Accra, as well as a mining quarry owned by him in the Eastern Region of Ghana.

The properties are estimated at GH¢20 million.

Reacting to this, the General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu described the ruling as a victory for the party.

According to him, the NPP promised to retrieve the money and so the ruling is a plus for the party.

"NDC didn’t want us to talk about the Woyome issue. This matter is close to our heart . . . I believe it’s a plus for us . . . it is a promise we made that has been fulfilled. I believe it is a victory for us," he stated during a panel discussion on Peace FM morning show 'Kokrokoo'.
