After bringing to light a new contract between embattled businessman Alfred Woyome and the Government of Ghana, OccupyGhana is pushing for the cancellation of it.

OccupyGhana said in a statement on Friday that the government of Ghana awarded the new contract to the embattled businessman in December 2015 even though he has still not refunded the GHS51million judgment debt illegally paid him by the state.

OccupyGhana said it is “shocked, outraged and appalled to discover this: That while the nation is still reeling from the effect of the Alfred Woyome judgment debt scandal, and the stalled and hesitant attempts by the Attorney-General to execute the judgment of the Supreme Court, the Government of Ghana has, on the blind side of Ghanaians, entered into a “confidential” and potentially lucrative agreement with Woyome, acting through one of his companies, Anator Holding Company Limited.”

A member of the group, Nana Sarpong, says the government should abrogate the contract and blacklist Woyome from winning government contracts.

He said: "Knowing how Mr. Woyome has played it with this country, we will say that the government should abrogate this contract or sought of like blacklist him and wait till Mr. Woyome is able to fulfil his financial obligations. Because if for instance  a construction company enters a contract with the state and does a very poor job, definitely, they would be blacklisted and they would not be given any more jobs until we find good reasons to believe that they will do a very good job.

 “In this case, Mr. Woyome is someone who owes the state and he has to refund that money back to the state and until that is done; we don’t think [the] government should be working with him."

Mr Woyome has however denied claims  by OccupyGhana that he has been given a new GHS35million contract from the government of Ghana.

“It is not true. OccupyGhana is just trying to run me down, but I will respond at the appropriate time,” he said

OccupyGhana rebuffed Woyome's denial by releasing the documents which show the new GH₵35 million contract government awarded  to embattled businessman, Alfred Agbesi Woyome.
