Most respected Ghanaian Ace Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata in an interview said that the Kufuor administration was very determined to jail him
The lawyer and academician claimed that this was because of his great relationship with former President Rawlings.
According to him, the Kufuor administration was determined to wipe out the legacy of the former late president in the country’s oil and gas industry.
Recall that, the Accra Fast Track High Court in June 2008 sentenced the former Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), Chief Executive, to five years imprisonment for wilfully causing financial loss to the State.
He was charged with three counts of wilfully causing financial loss of GHS230,000 (2.3 billion old Ghana cedis) to the State through a loan he guaranteed for Valley Farms, a private company, on behalf of GNPC and another count of misapplying public property.
In a conversation with KSM on the KSM show, Tsikata mentioned that he became a target of the Kufour administration because he was close to late former President Rawlings.
They had to find something. I could see by the beginning of 2001, the determination, by hook or crook to find something against me. That is what led to all these interesting cases against me
