Businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome has reacted swiftly to recent pronouncements by Former President Jerry John Rawlings as regards the recent ruling by the Court of Appeal on his judgement debt case.
“What the former president is saying now is no news,” Mr Woyome said in a statement.
“He has said it before; it’s false and was denied by Ingeborg Smith, the Honorary Consul of Austria to Ghana.”
In a recent interview with GH One television station, the first president of the Fourth Republic had alleged that the NDC financier had taken $500,000 from Austria. But he has since not accounted for that money.
“I can’t receive money on anybody’s behalf by misrepresentation,” Mr Woyome stated.
“Why is he repeating the same lies at this time,” he wondered.
According to Mr Woyome, who was absolved of wrongdoing in receiving GH¢51.2 million from the state, he was never in the country during the incipient years of the Fourth Republic and only came to Ghana “five months to the tail end of his regime”.
He said the former president has made his statements time without number.
“This is not the first time he is speaking after a ruling in my favour. God rules in the affairs of men.”
Mr Woyome paid tribute to the late president John Evans Atta Mills.
“I remember the former president John Evans Atta Mills, may his soul rest in peace. I remember GAME.”
