Ms. Agnes Adu, the iron-fisted Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Trade Fair Company had reportedly escaped serious bankruptcy in the United States of America (USA) to grab her appointment in 2016.
Dr. Adu whose highhanded used bulldozers to destroy some businesses within the Trade Fair enclave and forced many others to close down had been frolicking in massive debt leading to the foreclosure of her home in the USA in August 2005, Whatsup News investigations have gathered.
According to the information, the US$304,000 house which was located at Sugar Hill, Georgia, had been seized by the Bank of New York after Ms. Adu had failed to pay back a loan that she took from the bank to buy the house under a mortgage arrangement.
To get its money plus interest back, the bank, through the Gwinnet County court held a public auction to sell off the property, leaving Agnes Adu homeless.
According to the revelation, Nana Akufo-Addo’s victory in the 2016 election was her saving grace as it created an opportunity for her to use her alleged amorous involvement with the President’s cousin, Gabby Asare Otchere Darko, to get the appointment to head the Trade Fair Company.
It would be recalled that Agnes Adu had been appointed head of Trade Fair by Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, even though her Ministry fell under the Trade Ministry headed by Alan Kyeremanten.
Apparently, the circumvention of the appointment by Mr. Ofori-Atta was to make sure that she really gets the job that would be her saving grace from a life of hustling in the US.
And so when she was given the appointment, she returned to Ghana with her baggages as a bankrupt homeowner in the USA.
The same Agness Adu has since been talking down on other business owners at the Trade Fair and forcing entrepreneurs whose businesses to close down and vacate the Trade Fair lands on which their company offices sat.
In some instances, she defied ongoing court cases and forcibly closed down businesses, using bulldozers to pull down office buildings.
