Movie producer cum director, Leila Djansi, has described Selassie Ibrahim’s Smartty’s Management Limited as “a less qualified” entity to be given a contract to rebrand buses.
It has emerged that a Pro-forma invoice dated 17th July 2015, and signed by the Accounts Officer of Smarttys Management and Productions and copied to the Ministry of Transport, put the total cost of branding 116 buses at Ghc30,420.00 each.
The Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah ordered the Attorney General and Minister for Justice to recover GH¢1.9 million from Smartty’s Management Limited for the rebranding of 116 buses.
Leila in a Facebook post wondered why the company has not returned the said amount or been prosecuted as a result.
Here is her unedited post:
Good morning from John Mahama’s Ghana!! Multiple days without water. Last week we had to call the company head to have taps opened.
I so regret campaigning for NDC although I have no vote in Ghana. I lost friends, someone threatened to burn down my office in Ghana cos I was NDC. After all the sacrifices made to campaign and have faith in this party, Ghana has been faced with so much incompetence from this team! Even not living in Ghana, you feel the hardship. But they have money to give to a less qualified individual to brand buses.
Buses we brand at no less than 5000ghc per bus were branded for 30,000. That money could have been used to improve the water flow system in the country. Beds for hospitals.
This is the Ghana you get when selfish people thrive. When they give only to their family members. Clothe themselves in material things so they can worship.
So shameful! And everyone has forgotten that the young woman in question hasn’t returned the money and hasn’t even been prosecuted.
