Creating, Looting & Sharing Ghana’s Wealth under NDC BETTY MOULD, OTHERS MUST BE PROSECUTED – NPP challenges Mahama

The New Patriotic Party has challenged President John Dramani Mahama to take immediate steps to prosecute former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Betty Mould Iddrisu, and her deputy, Ebo Barton Odro, now deputy Speaker of Parliament, if he does not endorse the various roles they played that led to the illegal payment of over €40 million to Waterville Holdings Ltd as judgment debt.

According to the General Secretary of the NPP, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, any delay in taking action against the two personalities and other officials involved in the Waterville scandal  would “re-enforce the widely-held perception that Mahama does not only have what it takes to fight corruption but also endorses the canker.” Continue reading



Inherent in any well established democracy is the staging of periodic elections. Such elections do not only present the electorate, the opportunity to hold their public officials accountable through the ballot but also presents the electorate with the opportunity to choose between the contending parties, personalities and their respective visions.

After receiving the endorsement of Ghanaians in the last Presidential and Parliamentary elections in 2008, it is just appropriate that the stewardship of the NDC government is subjected to intense scrutiny by the Ghanaian people. Thus informed by the principles of transparent and accountable governance, the Alliance for Accountable Governance will commencing from Friday November, 30, 2012 hold series of public fora to assess the NDC government with the ultimate aim of aiding the electorate to make an informed decision come Election Day.

Commencing from Kumasi on Friday November, 30 2012, AFAG will also proceed to the Brong Ahafo Regional Capital, Sunyani on Monday December 3, 2012 and other regions which shall be communicated in due course.

It is the hope of AFAG, that in the end we will be uniquely positioned to influence the outcome of the results in order to save the country from her current state.

Thank you.

One major issue that has gripped this nation in 2012 is the issue of so called Judgment Debts which are more properly Settlement agreements.

The Woyome affair is a classic case that has dominated public discussion throughout this year.  The nation has been shocked and traumatized by the revelations of how the NDC government paid GHC 52 million to Mr. Woyome even though the man had no contract with government and did no work.

Reeling from this nationwide indignation, the NDC government has adopted a strategy of desperately portraying judgment debts/settlement claims as matters in which all governments share blame.  The government has tried to pursue this strategy by releasing selective details about other “judgment debts/settlement claims”, and attempting to portray the NPP as even more culpable. They have even tried to rope in the NPP Presidential Candidate, as also culpable in the payment of judgment debts/settlement claims. Continue reading


The Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) is completely flabbergasted by the continuous silence of the Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Dr Benjamin Kumbour on the issue of a self inflicted assassination attempt leveled against him. As the principal legal advisor to government and officer responsible for the initiation and conduct of all prosecutions of criminal offences, his continuous silence on a matter which boarder on such criminality, has left AFAG and all well meaning Ghanaians wondering on the personal credibility and integrity of the man who occupies the noble office of Attorney General and Minister of Justice.

This fear of credibility deficit was further heightened by the conduct of the AG when he recently appeared before the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament. It will be recalled that the Hon Minister speaking under oath threw his integrity to dogs by presenting a fraudulent document on the matter involving the payment of huge judgment debts to CP to the august committee of parliament.  It therefore comes as no surprise to AFAG that weeks after his appearance, Hon Kumbour has blatantly failed in making the document available to the PAC.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the press, good morning and welcome to today’s press conference.

The Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) will like to state without any reservation that, it was not shocked at all, at the turn of events in the Alfred Agbesi Woyome trial last Tuesday the 5th of June. Indeed, we predicted a drop of charges or an amendment rather than the “staged drama” of dropping the charges, proffering fresh charges, and re-arresting.

AFAG is unperturbed at the attempts by the A.G to hide behind the cover of technicalities to frustrate Ghanaians, aiming very well to conceal the well orchestrated gargantuan crime caused by Alfred Agbesi Woyome in connivance with Betty Mould-Iddrisu, Kwabena Duffour, Barton Oduro and the Presidency.

The Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) is disappointed at the continuous and deliberate attempt by the Attorney General (AG) to stall the prosecution of Alfred Agbesi Woyome over the alleged fraud of GHC 51.2 Million case against the state.

Today, June 4th, AFAG members went to the high (financial crimes) court to observe proceedings on the case between the Republic vs Alfred Woyome. However, when the case was called, the AG’s legal team was not in court. After a while, the case was called again, but the AG’s team which arrived late pleaded for some more time for investigations.
