Famous lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata has alleged in an interview that the Kufuor administration was keen on putting him behind bars at all cost in the early 2000s.
According to him, Kufour and the bigwigs in the NPP party hated him because of his great relationship with former-late President Jerry John Rawlings.
He further asserted that the Kufuor administration was determined to wipe out the legacy of the former late president in the country’s oil and gas industry.
Lawery Tsatsu Tsikata emphatically also stated that that former President Kufuor was determined to make him serve jail term by “hook or crook” during his tenure in office.
It could be recalled that the Accra Fast Track High Court, in June 2008, convicted the former Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), Chief Executive, giving him a five-year jail term for wilfully causing financial loss to the State.
Whiles speaking in an interview with KSM, he said;
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
