$8m NCA deal may be unconstitutional – Kofi Abotsi

The controversial $6 million contract between the National Communications Authority (NCA) and Infraloks Development Limited, maybe unconstitutional, Dean at the Faculty of Law at the GIMPA Law School, Ernest Kofi Abotsi has suggested.

Some former officials on the NCA Board including the Chairman, Eugene Baffoe-Bonnie; the Chief Executive Officer, William Tevie; a former Deputy National Security Coordinator, Alhaji Osman as well as a private businessman, George Oppong of Infraloks Development Limited, are being investigated by the BNI over some $4 Million withdrawn from the NCA’s account purportedly for the purchase of a listening device.

Article 181 (5) of the Constitution mandates state agencies to seek authorisation from Parliament, before entering into an international business transaction of which Government is a party.

It is, however, unclear if the deal went through Parliament.
