Rawlings Peddling Lies About Me Woyome


Businessman Alfred Woyome has said former President John Rawlings told untruths in his claim that he (Woyome) collected monies from some European groups in his name.

Mr. Rawlings in an interview with GHONE’s Nana Aba Anomoah alleged that the embattled businessman took some €500,000 from the Europeans.

“I’m glad the NPP was able to respond to that character, who was released or cleared of his criminal tendencies; the one they call – what’s his name? – Woyome. I heard somewhere that he said that I’m aware of the millions of dollars that he spent on the party. I’m not aware of any such millions of dollars he spent on the party.

“I am aware of the half-a-million euros he took from a foreign European group in my name; I never saw a penny of it. The one-and-a half million euros he took from that same group, supposedly on behalf of the party, he’s got to account for it,” Rawlings told Nana Aba.

But in a statement, Woyome said Rawlings is deliberately telling lies about him.

“What the former president is saying now is no news. He has said it before; it’s false and was denied by Ingeborg Smith, the Honorary Consul of Austria to Ghana. She said that they don’t have such an amount in their Consulate and they don’t run a charity company. I can’t receive money on anybody’s behalf by misrepresentation; why is he repeating the same lies at this time,” Mr Woyome asked, adding: “I was never in Ghana during the entire constitutional Presidency of Flt.Lt. J.J. Rawlings until five months to the tail end of his regime.”

“I remember his statement on the 12th of March, 2015. This is not the first time he is speaking after a ruling in my favour. God rules in the affairs of men. Long live Ghana. I remember the former president John Evans Atta Mills, may his soul rest in peace. I remember GAME.”
