The United States of America (USA) embassy in Ghana has called on the government to conduct a thorough forensic audit into claims of fraud regarding its contract with Power Distribution Services (PDS).
According to the United States that would help establish the full facts surrounding the nitty-gritty of the 'fraudulent' contract.
The Press Attache of the US Embassy in Accra, Ms Naomi Mattos, yesterday in response to enquiries the Daily Graphic made regarding the suspension of the PDS contract by the government and its impact on the Compact II made the call for investigation.
“The U.S. Government strongly encourages the Government of Ghana to conduct a thorough forensic audit into claims of fraud in order to fully establish the facts of the matter.
Only then can all relevant parties make a transparent and evidence-based decision in the best interests of the citizens of Ghana,” she said.
Ms Mattos added that the United States’ interest was in a transparent, well-run transaction that met international standards for private sector participation, investment and operations.

Kheris Rogers was the darkest of all them in her class at the time, in a class of African American students.
