Sacked Hopeson Adorye Buried In Heavy Debt


The woes of the Director of Security Director at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) in-charge of the VVIP wing, is deepening, days after he was sacked from his post.

Owners of a garage company, at Kotobaabi in Accra, Hopeson Yaovi Adorye, purchased a V8 Toyota Land Cruiser from in April 25, 2017, are on his heels for failing to settle the Ninety Five Thousand Dollars (US$95, 000) being the cost of the car he purchased on credit.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) communicator, who was recently dismissed from the KIA, has since been hauled before the court after The Herald’s publication in December.

He is said to be begging the car company to be given additional 36 months to settle his debt; a suggestion the dealers have vehemently refused him.

The decision follows The Herald’s publication last year that he had been running away from the car dealers since April 2017.

Mr Adorye, according to Car Port, was given three months to settle the amount involved, but after failing to honour his part of the agreement, he went into hibernation refusing to answers all phone calls. Several visits to his office at the KIA, yielded no result, as he kept hiding from the car dealers.

“We asked him to give us cheque for the first and second payment, but he didn’t. He asked us to give him a little more time because he was tight up as his wife was sick in Germany and pleaded that we allow him to go and see her so we agreed”.

“He was confronted after we allowed for some time to take care of his domestic matters, but yet still he refused to pay even after the wife died.

Not even a pesewa has been paid. He hasn’t given me even $1 as we speak neither has he called me”, Edmund Osei told this paper last month.

The only cheque he later issued to settle part of the money, bounced when the company tried to cash it from the bank.

CEO of Car Port, is contemplating whether to report him to the police for action.

The vehicle, with registration number, GE-2825-17, has already been involved in accident and according to the company.

Although Mr Adorye was advised to do comprehensive insurance to which he adhered to, he only paid for the first three months in 2017.

Mr Osei, has vowed to ensure Hopeson coughs the US$95, 000, as he has already won judgment from the Court.

According to Mr Osei, information from his lawyers is that Mr Adorye is begging the court to give him 36 months to settle the money, however, the lawyers have vehemently rejected the three year extension period and are planning to give him only three months to settle his debt to the company when next they meet in court.

Mr Osei laments he cannot wait for another three years to have his money when two years, is already gone.

Speaking to this paper, Mr Osei, said the posture and actions of Mr Adorye “Has disturbed me” but continued that he would not renege on his quest to retrieve the amount.

Both parties are expected back in court on January 27, 2019, where Mr Osei’s lawyers, will indicate to the court they cannot grant Mr Adorye, who got married to gospel songstress, Empress Gifty, last month in an Arabian-style his request of 36 months.
