The controversial GHs 51 Million judgment debt paid to the NDC financier Alfred Woyome and its resulted brouhaha may not die down any time soon as new revelations concerning the issue emerge with each passing day.

The MP for Assin North, Kennedy Agyapong who brought the issue to the public domain has flawed the investigative report by the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) claiming that the investigative body could not uncover the shady deals involving some government and party officials in the infamous woyome scandal.

speaking on Oman Fm’s late night political talk show programme dubbed ‘boiling point’ the MP alleged that his investigations revealed that from the same account in which GHs 40,000 was paid the wife of the chief state attorney, an amount of GHs 2.5millin was paid to the Castle whiles GHs 5 Million was also paid to GBC as cost of coverage of Presidents Mills’ re-election campaign.

He also added that an additional GHs 30 Million was paid to contractors working on the alleged NDC headquarters.

Kennedy Agyapong questioned why the EOCO investigations uncovered the account from which the chief state attorney’s wife was paid but was unable to expose that money were paid certain government functionaries from that same account.

He said though EOCO is a credible organisation, such a shoddy work done obviously to white-wash some government officials would hugely affect the reputation of the investigative body.

He indicated that if the government officials involved in the case are not arrested immediately then there is no justification for the detention of the chief state attorney.
