Former Attorney?General and Minister for?Justice, Betty Mould-?Iddrisu, may be contesting?the position of the?National Vice Chairperson?of the governing?National Democratic Congress?(NDC).Betty Mould

Posters and banners?indicating Mould-Iddrisu?s?intentions have been put?up in parts of Accra,?including the East Legon?residential area.

She is likely to face stiff?opposition from some of?the known faces in the?party.

Some of the party faithful?that have expressed?interest in the same position?are, Danny Annan,?former CEO of Accra?Hearts of Oak and Harry?Zakour, a businessman.The rest are Alhaji?Sinare and the former minister?of education Lee?Ocran.

The former Attorney?General was once tipped to?be the running mate to the?late Prof. John Mills in the?run-up to the 2008 elections.

She was made Attorney?General and Minister for?Justice when the NDC won?that election.

However, Betty Mould-?Iddrisu resigned from her?position after the details of?the payment of controversial?judgement debt to?NDC financier, Alfred?Agbesi Woyome became?public.

She had been under?pressure from the opposition?New Patriotic Party?(NPP) and some Ghanaians?for her reckless handling?of the payment of?over GH?51 million to the?businessman.

DAILY GUIDE learnt?that Ms Mould-Iddrisu?may soon make an appearance?at the judgement debt?commission for approving?dodgy payments to undeserved?people and companies?in the name of judgement?debt.

Her colleague former?Attorney General, Martin?A.K. Amidu, recently?asked the judgement debt?Sole-Commissioner, Justice?Yaw Apau, to determine?whether it was lawful for?Ms Mould-Iddrisu to?decide a settlement with?Yakubu Kasule, owner of?Gbewaa Civil Engineering?Limited, in a case against?the government.

Mr. Amidu is insisting?that it was irregular for an?Attorney General to enter?into terms of settlement?with Yakubu Kasule and?his company when all the?cases involved were not?consolidated before the
action.

The commission is?therefore expected to invite?Betty to explain her side of?the story on the numerous?suspected fraudulent payments?which a Supreme?Court Justice had?described as ?create, loot?and share enterprise?.
