Disgruntled businessman Alfred Woyome has accused former attorney general Martin Amidu of allowing himself to be used as a weapon against President John Mahama and the people of Ghana.

According to him, Mr Amidu is being manipulated by unseen hands to settle scores with the President and the NDC.

The Supreme Court has granted an application by Mr Amidu to cross-examine the businessman over the controversial GHC51 million that was paid by the State.  The ruling came after an initial application to cross-examine him orally by the attorney General was withdrawn.

Addressing a news conference on the matter Friday, Mr Woyome described the anti-corruption campaigner as a bitter man who cannot get over the fact that the late President John Mills chose Mr Mahama as his running mate in 2008 and subsequently won the polls.

“He felt that he must be the vice president. When the current president was chosen as vice, Martin went haywire. He was given an office at the Castle [then seat of government], still he was causing troubles everywhere. …Martin has a problem…he is being used by unseen forces as a weapon against Ghanaians and against the President.

“He’s even being used against himself,” he stated.
