Ghana Receives $1M Out Of $17M Made From Covid-19 Testing At The Kotoka International Airpot

It seems Ghana as a country is not willing to learn as the country always goes into deals which always leaves the country shortchanged.

All blame must be layed at the doorstep of the countries leadership as they are representatives of the entire nation.

But due to their own greed and selfish interest, they cheat the entire nation out of what is rightfully ours for a few bonuses which is promised them.

True to the continuous cycle of corruption that permeates African leadership, new information to Standupgh indicates that $17,359,500 was made from Covid-19 between September and December 2020.

The reports also revealed that Frontiers Health Services, the company in charge of conducting the tests, has only paid an amount of $1,157,200 in royalties to the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) out of the total money accrued.

“… I want to inform this August House that from September to December 2020, the total amount realized from the Covid-19 testing at the Kotoka International Airport was $17,359,500,” he said.

This revelation was made by Hon. Kwaku Ofori Asiamah,The Transport Minister, on the floor of Parliament while answering questions from deputy minority leader James Kludze Avedzi.

He disclosed that the contract between the GACL and Frontiers Health Services stipulated a sharing ratio of 10 to 140 dollars out of the $150 testing fee respectively.
