According to the former AG, Mahama has plans of stopping Woyome’s examination, as well as prevent the people from hearing the truth about the looting of the country’s funds.
The Supreme Court on November 16, granted Amidu permission to orally examine Mr. Woyome on the case, after the former AG filed a request to do so. Though Amidu is scheduled to examine Woyome on November 24, the former AG has indicated a possible foul play at the presidency on Woyome’s examination.
To buttress his claims, Amidu has released a statement titled President’s Conduct After Court Order Is More Reason Ghana Needs A New President on 7th December
In his statement, Amidu said that Mahama’s conduct even after the apex court ruling, shows that he would do everything in his power to ensure that the oral examination does not take place on 24th November 2016.
He explained that even after court’s ruling,
the President is shown on television that night castigating the decision of the Supreme Court he has sworn to defend and uphold. At the same time and in his interview, the President takes an intimidating stand against the beneficiary of the decision and order of the Court by charging him with spreading falsehoods.
He pointed out that the President can further subvert the cause of justice so that the people of Ghana do not hear the truth about the loot of the public purse, until after the elections on December 7 2016. This he said was the more reason Ghanaians shuld vote President Mahama out come December 7.
