• A law firm belonging to Cherie Blair was contracted by GoG in the US$170 million PPA judgement debt
• The firm was to challenge the arbitration ruling
• A day before the ruling, they refused to file the needed response
The Government of Ghana (GoG) in January 2021, had to hire the services of Omnia Strategy LLP, a law firm that belongs to Cherie Blair, the wife of former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, to file a challenge in an attempt to reverse a $170 million judgement debt awarded against Ghana.
The GoG hired Omnia Strategy LLP because in January 2021, after the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-led government was sworn into office for the second term, the country had no Attorney General (AG) who would be prosecuting a case filed against the country on behalf of the government.
Not until March 5, 2021, that Godfred Yeboah Dame was sworn into office after he had successfully been passed by the Appointments Committee of Parliament.
