Circulating reports have had it that Mr. Mahama, who’s the CEO of Engineers and Planners, has been directed to pay the state the sum of GHC12.7 million. The amount is in connection to “dishonoured” checks Mr. Ibrahim Mahama issued in 2015 in order to clear heavy equipment from the Tema Harbour.
The National Democratic Party has stated that the EOCO’s involvement in the issue is a sign of the political motivation aimed at victimizing Mr. Mahama.
Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Hon. Sam George, has recently hinted that the state allegedly owes Mr. Mahama practically twice the amount he has been told to pay, although these allegations are yet to be confirmed.
