The Supreme Court has dismissed the case in which Businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome is asking the court to set aside government’s purchase of some properties belonging to him to defray his ¢51.2 million judgement debt to the nation.

He rather wants to offer 1,567 acres of land which he estimated at the cost of $15.5 million.

He said this land is readily available for use in the Volta Region. But a five-member panel presided over by the Chief Justice Anin Yeboah after listening to him ruled that his application is unmeritorious in procedure and dismissed it as an abuse of court procedure.

In the apex court’s first public sitting in the new legal year, Mr Woyome who was representing himself while moving the application said all efforts to meet the Attorney General’s Department to hear him were frustrated.

According to him, there are government agencies and ministries who have expressed willingness to acquire those lands he owned.

Meanwhile, MP for Assin Central kennedy Agyapong’s case has been adjourned to Wednesday, October 14.
