Ablakwa petitions World Bank to probe $48m Ascend contract allegedly awarded by Ursula Owusu-Ekuful

The North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has petitioned the World Bank over a project being rolled out by the Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation.

According to him, the contract for the project did not go through the Public Procurement Authority (PPA) which he says is a violation.

Mr Ablakwa has thus asked the World Bank to investigate the project as it is the one funding same.

In a tweet on Wednesday, July 12, the former Deputy Education Minister said the US$48million contract was awarded fraudulently.

“Yesterday, I petitioned @WorldBank to launch investigations into the litany of irregularities, misrepresentation, insider dealing & conflict of interest relating to the US$48million Ascend Scandal & how that was used to fraudulently secure a US$49.5m WB funded eTransform project.”
