Listen To Article

Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has been ordered by the Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Mike Aaron Ocquaye to appear before the house to account for revenue accumulated so far by the Kelni GVG monitoring system.

The minority in parliament accused the minister of refusing to appear before the house to give account on the Kelni GVG Monitoring System on three consecutive occasions.

The minority has described her actions as blatant disrespect to the floor of parliament.

The Speaker in reaction instructed that Madam Ursula Owusu-Ekuful make herself available on  Friday, August 7, 2020, to answer questions in relation to the matter.

“I notice that no answer has been placed on record. I direct that the Minister must answer all the relevant questions and make herself available on Friday to answer the relevant questions,” he said.

Kelni GVG was awarded an $89m contract by the government of Ghana to develop and oversee the Common Platform for traffic monitoring, revenue assurance, and mobile money monitoring in accordance with the Communication Service Tax (Amendment) Act, 2013, Act 864.

May civil society organizations and pressure groups such as IMANI Africa have raised concerns of corruption in the contract which the minister, Madam Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has denied.
