A Deputy Minister of Communications, George Nenyi Andah has reiterated the fact that the Founding President of IMANI Africa Franklin Cudjoe is on the wrong path as far as discussions on the Ministry of Communications’ contract with Kelni GVG is concerned.

Franklin Cudjoe is calling for the abrogation of the $89.4million contract between the state and telecommunications company, Kelni GVG.

According to him, Subah Info Solution and Afriwave are already performing similar jobs for the Communication Ministry as a result; the contract is needless and is just a duplication of functions.

Reacting to this earlier on in the week, George Andah defused IMANI’s concern adding, no amount of pressure will compel the government to cancel the controversial contract.

reacting to the same issue during a panel discussion on JOY FM’s Newsfile programme Saturday, the deputy minister who also doubles as the Member of Parliament for Awutu Senya West Constituency said he suspects IMANI is being motivated.

Either IMANI is misinformed or they have been motivated to do whatever they are doing…I would have expected that if they had any concerns, they should have engaged the ministry. People could be misinformed…IMANI is not God. There hasn’t been any request to meet with the ministry. They are misinformed; IMANI is misinformed,” he noted.

According to him, “we are 100 percent sure that this (contract) is in the interest of Ghana.

Background

Kelni GVG, a Haitian originated company, has been awarded a contract by the government for design, development and implementation of a common platform for traffic monitoring, revenue assurance, and mobile money monitoring and fraud management.

The Kelni GVG contract upon its signing stipulates that a payment of $1,491,225 be paid monthly for a 5-year period, amounting to a total of USD 89,473,500.

Per the terms of the contract, which was signed in December 2017, the monthly payments are supposed to begin no later than 30 days after the contract was signed.

This, by inference, means that the state through the Ministry of Communications owes at least $5.96 million as of May this year.

Meanwhile, Glo has already signed on according to George Andah.
