The President of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe says the Communications Ministry must withdraw “contentious” deal with a Haitian company GVG/Kelni purported to be tackling revenue losses and simbox fraud in the telcos, or be prepared to face a full battle with stakeholders on the move.
Cudjoe has insisted it’s unlikely for them to retreat on the matter, as they’re[IMANI] readying to release more damning aspects of that contract to expose the Ministry.
Speaking on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 FM, Mr. Franklin Cudjoe reiterated the $89 million contract signed in 2017 is a careless duplication of operations and a needless drain on the national kitty.
The Ministry’s response to the raging issues is long overdue after 48hrs of probing matters relating to the “high risk” contract, Cudjoe told host Kwaku Owusu Adjei on Friday.
In 2010 the Ghana Revenue Authority contracted Subah to oversee revenue assurance activities within the telcos.
The company received 75 million cedis for what critics say was payment for no work done.
Later on in 2015, Afriwave was appointed by the NCA to perform the job of an interconnect clearinghouse services which was similar to the job being done by Subah. They were also paid an amount of 40 million cedis.
In 2017, the NPP government is now contracting a new foreign company to do the same, if not similar job.
