The former Mayor of Accra, Dr. Alfred Okoe Vanderpuije, has staged a blistering defense and refuted claims by Dr. Bruce Wartford Snr that he owes him, asking him to come forward with evidence.
His rebuttal follows an allegation by the American national that Okoe Vanderpuije owes him a whopping $200,000, after he went into partnership with him, but Dr. Vanderpuije has debunked the claim as being false, because it cannot be substantiated.
Although Dr. Bruce did not show any evidence, he told The Chronicle, from his base in the United States of America (USA) through his surrogate, Mr. Yaw Kyei in Kumasi, that Mr. Alfred Okoe Vanderpuije owes him $200,000.00, claiming this happened after he (Dr. Watford) delivered a consignment to the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), an allegation Okoe has vehemently rubbished.
But the former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), who is now the Member of Parliament for Ablekumah South in the Greater Accra Region, has put up the defense that the partnership between he and Bruce ended as soon as he took over as AMA boss.
Speaking to The Chronicle, Okoe Vanderpuije accused Wartford of selling-off a house which did not belong to him, without the knowledge of Mr. Siaw Agyapong, CEO of Zoomlion Ghana Limited.
According to Okoe Vanderpuije, Bruce sold the house which his late wife furnished without informing either he or Mr. Agyapong.
He has, however, challenged Bruce Wartford to come forward with documentary evidence, which indicates that they, indeed, had a contract to honour.
