Minority Calls For Enquiry Into Frontiers Health Care Contract
MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzato Ablakwa has called for a full-scale by-partisan inquiry into the Frontiers Health-Care Services Limited Contract.
The Minority in Parliament through its Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs committee and MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzato Ablakwa has said, a full-scale by-partisan inquiry must be conducted into Frontiers Health-Care Services Limited Contract.
In a press conference held in Parliament today Friday 19 February, 2021 explain that per answers being given on the Frontier Health-care Services Ltd of One Hundred and Fifty Dollar ($150) contract for Anti-gene test at the appointment committee's inquiry clearly shows that, there is something fishy and fraudulent in awarding of that contract.
Mr Okudzato said, “many and different answers are being given by some ministerial nominees who are expected to give answers to the contract. The Health Minister-Designate told the Ministerial Appointment Committee that, he does not know anything about the contract and that, they should find out from the Presidential Tax force."
Attorney General who also served on the procurement board told the committee he does not know anything about the contract.
The immediate past Procurement Minister at the Presidency, Sarah Adwoa Safo also told the Appointment Committee that she does not also know anything about it but should rather enquire from the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.
Mr Okudzato Ablakwa further pointed out that, when the Information Minister Designate who was the Same minister at Information Ministry at the time of awarding this same contract also told the committee that they should find out from the Ghana Airport Ltd, therefore, considering the answers being given by the nominees to the Appointment Committee clearly shows that procedure and laws of procurement were not followed in awarding the contract to Frontier Health-care Services Ltd.
Mr Samuel Okudzato Ablakwa who spoke on behalf of the minority in Parliament did indicate that they are going to file a motion at Parliament and call for a bi-partisan inquiry into the matter and find out how the contract was awarded to Frontier Health-care Services Ltd.
