Head of Political Science at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr. Richard Amoako Baah says Subah info solutions was set up primarily to take up the telecom monitoring contract and the money that came with it. He says the company was not in existence prior to the deal which earned the IT firm GH¢74.3 million Ghana Cedis.
Several concerns are brewing about the exoneration of Subah Info Solutions of any corrupt dealing with the Ghana Revenue Authority.
A government committee set up to investigate the alleged payment of GHC144 million to Subah InfoSolutions Ghana Limited by the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) for no work done has exonerated the private IT firm.
Subah was contracted by the GRA in 2010 to provide telecom traffic monitoring services for revenue verification for the tax agency.
The report says the contract was legally awarded and cannot be terminated.
The report also says Subah justifiably incurred cost in executing the contract for which reason it was paid 74.3 million cedis contrary to the reported 144 million cedis for services rendered.
The report, however, admits that Subah failed to fully execute its contract but blamed this on the unwillingness of Telecom companies to allow Subah to attach equipment that will independently monitor revenue declared.
It has therefore negotiated a 1 per cent reduction in Subah’s charges.
But this has stirred controversy among pressure groups questioning the committee’s report.
Head of Political Science at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr Richard Amoako Baah on his show, “WHATS GOING ON” on Ultimate radio insisted the contract is murky.
He says Subah Info Solutions was formed purposely “just to take this money” and questions how much money government is making that enables it to pay such hefty amounts for “no work done”.
He reveals that Subah info Solution’s US address; 98 Groves wood Ct. Columbia, South Carolina according to his investigation leads to a private home that’s on sale and accuses the various players in the contract of “crookedness and thievery” .
The charged lecturer also admonished Ghanaians not to place their hopes in the ongoing National Economic Forum as there is nothing new to be expected when the same crop of people who have presided over the mismanagement from various sides of the political divide meet.
