Pressure group, CitizenGhana Movement has expressed appreciation to the former Attorney General, "for his unrelenting fight against corruption”, specifically in the case involving the Alfred Agbesi Woyome 51 million cedis judgement debt.

In a statement released Thursday, the group said the Supreme Court ruling on the case involving Martin Amidu and businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome is a significant step in the fight against corruption.

“...We wish to recognize and appreciate the singular efforts of Citizen Vigilante for his unrelenting fight against corruption, especially in this particular case. We encourage him to keep up with the good fight and we offer him the best assurances of our unflinching support,” the group said in the statement.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted an application by former Attorney General to orally examine Alfred Woyome over his payment of the 51 million cedis judgement debt paid him by the state.

The judge Justice Enin Yeboah ordered the business man to appear before the court on the 24th of November for the examination.

Justice Enin Yeboah in his ruling said the application was granted because there was no formal evidence of execution of the court’s order for the money to be retrieved hence the decision.

Mr Amidu's application follows a notice filed by the Attorney General’s Department at the Supreme Court to discontinue the case it had earlier filed.

Below is the full statement from the group:

CITIZENGHANA MOVEMENT SPURS ON HON. MARTIN AMIDU IN THE QUEST TO RETRIEVE THE GHC51.2 MILLION FROM ALFRED AGBESI WOYOME

On Wednesday November, 16, 2016, the Supreme Court delivered a ruling whose effect will be to compel Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome to appear before the apex court to be examined on oath by Hon. Martin Amidu concerning the retrieval of the GHC51.2 million which the Court held in July 2014 to have been wrongfully paid to Mr. Woyome.

Ghanaians will recall that a similar process which had been initiated by the Attorney-General was abruptly discontinued by the Attorney-General, citing among other reasons, the fact that Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome had made an overture to pay the money in installments.

We at CitizenGhana Movement welcome this landmark ruling as we consider it a significant boost in the fight against corruption – an arch nemesis to good governance. The ruling empowers all citizens to live true to the constitutional obligation to protect and preserve the public purse under Article 41(f).

We, therefore, wish to encourage citizens, anti-corruption crusaders and the whole of civil society to take advantage of this important decision in their work and ultimate quest for good governance.

In concluding, we wish to recognize and appreciate the singular efforts of Citizen Vigilante for his unrelenting fight against corruption, especially in this particular case. We encourage him to keep up with the good fight and we offer him the best assurances of our unflinching support.

We recognize the import of the case in empowering citizens to step up and take on the role of protecting the national coffers, especially in instances where the government reneges on this responsibility.

We look forward to November 24, 2016, when Mr. Woyome will be examined, and we remain hopeful that this matter will be brought to its logical conclusion with Ghanaians being the ultimate victors.

God bless Hon. Martin Amidu. God bless the Supreme Court. God bless Ghana.
