The Minority in Parliament is alleging that it has uncovered a move by the government to hand over Ghana’s natural gas resources to a foreign company without parliamentary approval.

Ranking Member on Parliament’s Mines and Energy Committee, John Abdulai Jinapor, who made the allegations said the deal was originally between the state and a foreign company.

But in an alleged move to bypass the requirement for parliamentary approval, an entity has been registered in Ghana to proceed with the contract.

Speaking to journalists, he said some high-ranking officials in government are pressuring the Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Gas to sign some of these dubious contracts.

He made it clear without equivocation that the next John Mahama administration will not be bound by illegal contracts.

He said that as much as he respects the sanctity of contracts, the next government will not honour illegal ones.

“We in the minority wish to send a caution, and let me make it clear that we are aware that unimpeachable information indicates that some high-ranking officials in government are pressuring the Chief Executive of the Ghana Gas Company to sign some of these dubious contracts.

“Let me make it clear without equivocation that the next John Mahama administration will not be bound by illegal contracts. Inasmuch as we respect the sanctity of contracts, we will not honour illegitimate, illegal, opaque, clandestine contracts that go against the Republic of Ghana,” he noted.

He advised the Chief Executive of Ghana Gas not to sign the contract due to the intended consequences for the state.

“And my message to the Chief Executive of the Ghana Gas Company, Dr. Ben Asante, is simple and straightforward; don’t! And I mean, don’t! Don’t allow selfish politicians to mislead you,” he added.

He confirmed to Ghanaians that the Minority has activated the Parliamentary process, and already the Mines and Energy Committee has requested all the details surrounding the contract awarded.
