Renowned businessman, and younger brother of former President Mahama, Ibrahim Mahama has withdrawn the last 60 pesewas from the account of loudmouth PRO for Ghana Gas, Ernest Owusu Bempah, according to reports.
This follows the execution of an order by an Accra High Court which awarded a cost of GHS310,000 to the CEO of Engineers and Planners after he won a defamation suit against the embattled PRO of Ghana Gas.
The Court had ordered the National Investment Bank (NIB) to transfer the amount of GHS310,000 to the businessman. The court also ordered that in case the amount in the account is less than the awarded amount, the account must be emptied.
In compliance with the court order, MyNewsGh reports that the account was emptied due to the fact that the amount in that account was less than the awarded cost.
The report further indicates that the lawyers of Mr Mahama are exploring the possibility of emptying Mr Owusu Bempah’s momo account to defray the awarded cost.
Meanwhile, Owusu Bempah has said that he intends to challenge the judgment of the court at the Supreme Court.
