Woyome will Regret for Continuing to Live in the Fools' Paradise

Does history serve any lesson to Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome I would like to inquire? I think recorded past events are nothing to him or else he would not continue to believe that he will soon be let off the Woyomegate scandal hook.

I will once again advise Mr Woyome not to continue to wallow in the absurd fantasies pertaining in the proverbial fools' paradise. He is merely hallucinating should he believe that he could escape unharmed from the unprecedented thievery he has inflicted on Mother Ghana.

It is about time he mentioned the names of all those who hatched that plan to dupe Ghana for which he was only used as a front or a springboard. Is he not fooling himself, his lawyers and all those supporting him for continuing to claim innocence in this scandal, he having earlier asserted that he had not signed any contract with Ghana government to merit the payment? Are his lawyers also not fooling themselves or dubiously fleecing him knowing that he is guilty beyond all reasonable doubts on his own words?

Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome, I will offer you free advice by asking you to familiarize yourself with the incident of Joachim Amartey Kwei, the late member of the PNDC government. He offered himself as a foolish man or an implement for them to use to achieve the diabolical objectives of former President Rawlings, Captain Kojo Tsikata (rtd) and other reprehensibly mischievous entities within the then PNDC government.

After abducting and heinously executing the three High Court judges - Messrs Justice Fred Poku Sarkodee, Justice Kwadwo Agyei Agyapong and Mrs Justice Cecilia Koranteng-Addow and Maj Acquah, Joachim Amartey Kwei thought he could get away scot-free. In the end, he could not be protected by his superiors who hatched the plan and encouraged him to carry it out, as ignorant fool as he was. When it became imminent that the only option left for the PNDC was to execute Amartey Kwei by firing squad, he started weeping. Rawlings took him indoors, interviewed him to know if really Captain Kojo Tsikata engineered that horrible abduction, execution and burning of the mentioned victims?

Rumour has it that he mentioned Tsikata as one of the main architects who devised and instructed the execution of that obscene act but his assertion was too late to be accorded any credibility. Rawlings is the only person who knows exactly the last words and the incrimination made by Amartey Kwei against Kojo Tsikata but he has refused to reveal it to Ghanaians.

The lesson I would like Woyome to learn from this is if Amartey Kwei had initially implicated Kojo Tsikata, he might have saved his life, as Rawlings could in no way have had Kojo Tsikata executed by firing squad. Alternatively, that devil incarnate, Kojo Tsikata, would also have faced execution by firing squad.

Woyome will suffer the same fate the longer he continues to deceive himself by believing he can get away with the blue murder he has inflicted on Ghanaians and Mother Ghana. Justice will surely catch up with him; incarcerate him while the other accomplices will be outside enjoying their booty. Will Woyome be that stupid not to learn a lesson from the incident of Joachim Amartey Kwei?

Mrs Betty Mould-Iddrisu profited personally from the Woyomegate scandal, for that I know. She took GHC5 Million. Who are the others; I would like Alfred Agbesi Woyome to tell.

Woyome the Gargantuan Swindler of the Century, today I offer you this advice free. I want you to save yourself and save Ghana from further dubious judgment debt payments. I have reliable information that the NDC are using that as a means to enrich themselves. They only saw signs of weakness in you, and thought they could easily manipulate you, hence using you to attain their target of embezzling funds.

If there was a coup d'état today in Ghana leading on to the execution of fraudsters, embezzlers and the arch-enemies of Ghana, I think Alfred Agbesi Woyome would be a prime target. I may be right and I may be wrong.

"Had I known is always at last", my noble advice to Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome. His lawyers, friends and supporters are only there to fleece and escape when the going really gets tough.
