Nana Akufo-Addo exposed; as his top officials deny knowledge of $150 Airport Antigen contract

    President Nana Akufo-Addo

    Some Ghanaians on social media are wondering which government official has seen the contract between the Government of Ghana and Frontier Healthcare Services Limited for COVID-19 testing at the Kotoka International Airport(KIA) following the reopening of the airport in September last year with many holding consensus that Akufo-Addo should answer.

    The former Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyeman Manu, and his Deputy, Dr Bernard Okoe Boye under whose tenure the testing contract was signed have both publicly denied knowledge of the contents of the contract with Frontiers Healthcare Services Limited, which had no license to operate as at the time it began operations in the country.

    The Foreign Minister-Designate, who was Foreign Minister, when the contract was entered into has also denied having seen the details of the contract.

    The charge of US$150 per test raised eyebrows and had many criticising the government for profiting from the pandemic. But Dr Okoe Boye justified the charge insisting that it was well-thought-through and considerate.

    But in an interview with Joy FM he denied having seen the contents of the contract that hounded over the testing of the travelling public to the company.
