lfred Woyome, businessman and member of the opposition National Democratic Congress says he could refund the GHS 51 million judgement debt cash wrongfully paid him by the state if his shares in business ventures he invested in are released.
Woyome says his shares in some 14 companies have been frozen by the state.
“Let the government release the shares of my company and probably within two months that money will be paid,” he said on Face to Face on Citi TV.
He told host, Umaru Amadu Sanda that he feels the state is not interested in retrieving the money he owes hence his current predicaments.
“I went to the Flagstaff House to meet the Personal Assistant to the Chief of Staff so that the Attorney General [will meet me and] and release shares of my company so that I can pay this money [GHS 51 million] although I have not stopped the state from going after the matter.”
Currently, the Supreme Court has given the Attorney General permission to sell properties belonging to Mr. Woyome to offset the remaining GHS47 million he currently owes the state.
