Like many other Ghanaians, Entrepreneur and politician Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom thinks the government of Ghana and AMERI Group deal is a shady one.
The former Minister of state in his Facebook post asked five critical questions. According to Dr. Nduom if due diligence was not done in the transaction then “many heads must roll.”
An investigative revelation by Norwegian newspaper, Verdens Gang (VG) indicate that Ghana’s Power Minister signed a deal with a man from Oslo wanted for fraud and organized crime. The deal is worth 510 million dollars.
The deal has led to Ghanaians asking questions of government and its appointees. Meanwhile, the Power Ministry has described the Norwegian newspaper report as false.
And the leader of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) is not an exception. He wants answers to the following five questions asap.
Below is his full Facebook post:Many Heads Must Roll? So after checks and counter checks, it is true that Ghana's Minister of Power, Dr. Kwabena Donkor signed deal with Ameri Group worth a reported 510 million dollars to lease a power plant.What I together with many Ghanaian taxpayers and power users want to know are these:1. Is it true that the deal was signed with a company with questionable references?2. Are the principals of Ameri Group a Dubai prince and Umar Farook Zahoor a man wanted for several fraudulent acts in Europe?3. Is the price tag for the deal inflated?4. Did cabinet and the presidency do proper due diligence on the Ameri Group and the pricing of the deal given that previous international transactions have suffered credibility tests after the fact? Reference CNTCI and STX Korea.5. Is power from this transaction an influencing factor in the recent electricity price hike?I am practicing patience, willing to give benefit of the doubt to President John Dramani Mahama and the Power Minister on this deal. We need answers. Quickly. Otherwise, many heads must roll!
