Transport Minister Andrew Kwaku Asiamah has stated that the Ghana Aiport Company Limited did not breach any procurement law on the contract awarded to Frontiers healthcare Services to conduct the testing regime at the Kotokjota International Airport.
Appearing before Parliament on Thursday, June 30, 2022, the Minister told the House that the laws in awarding the contract were followed.
He said the Ghana Airport Company strictly followed its established procedures in awarding the contract to the company.
The company sought and secured approval from the Public Procurement Authority (PPA) before the award of the contract to Frontiers Healthcare.
The answer did not satisfy the MP Tamale Central mp, Murtala Mohammed.
According to him, the response provided by the Minister did not answer his original question.
His reaction drew the attention of Second Deputy Andrew Kwabena Asiamah, who was presiding.
He asked him to say that the response was not to his satisfaction and not that the question was not answered.
With the guidance of the Speaker, the MP asked for the Minister to be directed to provide the contractual agreement between the Ghana Airport Company Limited and Frontiers Healthcare Company.
The Second Deputy Speaker then directed the Minister to provide the contractual agreement, a directive the Minister promised to comply with.
He said during his vetting, he presented the agreement before the vetting committee and given the opportunity, he will submit the agreement again.
The Speaker then asked him to submit the agreement to the House next week.
