Will Woyome ever Refund the GHC51 Million to Ghana?

From empirical observation, one can conclude that the NDC government is doing "waga drill" with the Woyome case. Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome has swindled Ghana of GHC51 Million for no work done. The only energy he expended was the time he took to perfect the plan with some NDC stalwarts to dupe Ghana of the quoted amount.

The State Attorneys designated to prosecute Woyome in court are not up to the task. They keep asking the trial judge for the adjournment of the case whenever it is due for hearing. They always claim to have not completed work on obtaining sufficient evidence to nail Woyome. I see their repeated requests as gargantuan historic joke same as Woyome is a joke if he thinks he can escape with the money through eventual default judgment in his favour.

I will not rest until Alfred Agbesi Woyome has refunded the money he has so dubiously taken from the State back to the State. Any attempts of connivance by any rogue NDC gurus to assist Mr Woyome to keep the money will not stick. He has personally confessed on air that he did not sign any contract with the former NPP government about the rehabilitation of stadia for CAN 2008 (African Cup of Nations). What further proofs do the State Attorneys need to prosecute Woyome for his historic unprecedented daylight thievery inflicted on Mother Ghana? His own words are more than enough to send him to jail. Former President Kufour and his Ministers can called upon as principal witnesses to secure conviction and prison term for Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome.

The deplorable "go slow" attitude by the State Attorneys is intentional to secure Woyome freedom. I am sure Woyome will mention names to jeopardise the chances of the NDC at election 2012 if they go down hard on him hence going softly on him to avoid such a possible disastrous catastrophe for NDC.

Nobody is a fool. The NDC should understand there are many intelligent people out there that can read the fine threads between their outlandish tricks. Please Woyome, you had better reveal how and with whom you duped the nation. No matter how far the NDC help Woyome to drag the case through deliberate conniving and condoning acts or attempts, he WILL pay back the money. By the way, where did you learn to become such a GARGANTUAN SWINDLER, Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome?

You are arguing that you have never publicly claimed to be the financier of the NDC. Yes, you have not. However, you have said you never signed any contract with the for President Kufour's government to execute any works and services for the nation. Why then did you present fictitious documents to defraud Ghana of GHC51 Million?

The only way Ghanaians can penetrate the fortress the NDC have erected around Woyome in their attempt to retrieve the GHC51 Million is to vote President Mills and the NDC out come December 7, 2012 elections. Please fellow Ghanaians, do not allow passion for NDC to sway you to part with your precious vote to them. Do not fall for their propaganda either. Vote wisely to compel Woyome to refund the money. State money belongs to the entire taxpayers, that is, everyone who is a Ghanaian. Should we allow only one person to enjoy the State money that the government could have better used to provide hospitals and schools for the people in Ghana? That money could build all the entire houses in my town, Kumawu. Woyome refund the money before I get angry with you.

I have also not forgotten about Carl Wilson, another crook employed by Dishonourable Alex Segbefia, the Deputy Chief of Staff to confiscate cars from the Ghana harbours. Carl Wilson, a person without IT expertise was however able to procure personal software he could run to detect stolen cars shipped to Ghana, he alleged. It is only in Ghana that all these emerging crooks can cheat the nation with impunity. They could not have achieved their dubious aims without the help of President "Do Little" Atta Mills. He does not stamp his authority when the occasion calls for but sits with arms folded around the chest whilst the crooks plunder Ghana.

I once again appeal to all intelligent Ghanaians, which, I hope you all are, except the die-hard corrupt ones in the NDC, to vote out the NDC and President Mills. All their unprecedented achievements are gargantuan corruption, embezzlements, insults, unmatched incompetence and mediocrity by the government.

A word to my fellow discerning Ghanaians is enough. Please do not allow paid NDC sycophants and serial callers to fool you. Now is your chance to wipe the slate clean by showing the NDC the exit out of political corridor and power.
