'Tell Mahama To Take Off Your Images From Buses' - Group Petitions Rawlings And Kufuor

Former Presidents Jerry John Rawlings and John Agyekum Kuffuor have been petitioned by a group calling itself 'Concerned Ghanaians'  to order President Mahama to take off their images from all 'controversially' re-branded government buses which they (the group) describe as a highly corrupt deal.

The petition follows a public outcry over the GH₵ 3.6m expenditure which has been described as sheer wasteful expenditure.

In the meantime, the Attorney General has been ordered to review the said contract which has cost government such an amount of money. In a letter dated December 17, 2015, Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah directed the Attorney General to further investigate the matter to ensure due process was followed.

Meanwhile the minority has called for a probe into the matter but the Majority has defended the cost, saying it is justifiable as further investigations show the contract was paid through the use of funds from the nation’s oil revenue.
