Isofoton Blames NPP For Its Woes

John-Agyekum-KufuorThe Country Representative of the Spanish firm, Isofoton SA, Mr Anane-Agyei Forson has claimed that the erstwhile Kufuor administration misled them into signing a contract under the pretence that it would seek Parliamentary approval.

The Spanish firm has been ordered by the Supreme Court to refund close to 400,000 US dollars, to the State paid as judgment debt.

The court, in a unanimous decision, upheld the application for refund by former Attorney General, Mr  Martin Amidu, adding that the contract was null and void because it lacked Parliamentary approval.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s  on Monday, Mr. Forson said they cannot be punished for government’s inefficiencies.
“They [Kufuor government] have defrauded [us] by signing a contract and refusing to perfect it in Parliament. When it good for them it could go but when we go to court to challenge them they tell us the contract did not go to Parliament”.

The Isofoton Country Representative wondered why the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has taken keen interest in the case when in fact it was their government that caused the damage.

Mr Anane-Agyei Forson threatened to let the cat out if the NPP and its appendages continue with the witch hunt.
“I am a strong NPP member and I contributed to Akufo-Addo’s campaign team; so if anything, the members should rather be supporting me” he bemoaned.
