The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is demanding immediate abrogation of a $570 million Accra-Tema Motorway contract awarded to South African based Portuguese company Mota-Engil. They are specifically pushing for a full scale probe into the merit of the award of the contract which they argue is not in the interest of Ghanaians
Government in December last year in a statement signed by the Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Attah announced the award of the contract for redesign and construction of the motorway.
But the NDC spokesperson on Roads and Transport, Governs Kwame Agbodza in a media briefing January 13, accused the government of failing to seek parliamentary approval before awarding the contract.
The Adaklu MP demanded immediate cancellation of the contract to be given to local contractors to execute since government of Ghana is proving funding for the entire project.
Media General’s Komla Klutse has put this report together.
