Chief Executive Officer of GH Daewoo, Ofori Poku says the allegations by Mr. Kevin Taylor can best pass as well-calculated mischief and must be downplayed.

He also urged the Ghanaian public to treat Kevin Taylor’s claims with the highest level of contempt, particularly regarding issues relating to a bus contract by the Ministry of Transport to purchase 50 Daewoo buses which he (Kevin Taylor) claimed was to be sold for $75,000 per unit.

The Daewoo company further explained in its communique that the prices displayed on Alibaba are just sample prices and lowest and standard prices in order to tempt the customer.

The company added that the prices of its products on Alibaba are based on only all Chinese components.
