Tsatsu Tsikata has said in an interview with KSM that the Kufuor led-administration was doing everything possible to put him behind bars – prison.
Tsatsu who is the lead counsel for John Mahama in the ongoing election petition trial said that former president Kufuor was determined to make him spend jail time by hook or crook during his tenure in office.
Historically in the year 2008, Accra Fast Track High Court convicted Tsatsu Tsikata, the former CEO of Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), by giving him a five-year jail term 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,” he said.
