ASEPA petitions Special Prosecutor to probe Covid Testing contract with Ghana Airport Company


Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng.

The Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA), has petitioned Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, to investigate the contract Ghana Airport Company signed with the Frontier Health Services to test travelers for covid-19 at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).

The two companies have been working together since last year when it became necessary for passengers entering and leaving Ghana via flight to be tested for Covid-19.

Frontier Health Services are said to have accumulated $17 million from the testing of passengers at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA), but only $1 million is alleged to have gone to the government.

ASEPA wants the Special Prosecutor to conduct a Risk Assessment Analysis on the government’s contract with the Ghana Airport Company, stating that the contract, “has been marred in serious controversy and unacceptable opaqueness contrary to the Public Procurement procedures of Ghana to your attention,” part of the ASEPA petition to the Special Prosecutor read.
