Mofa, GHA Officials Fail To Appear Before Judgement Debts C’ssion

The absence of two officers or their accredited representatives at the Judgement Debts Commission yesterday, compelled the Commission to re-schedule its sitting.

The Chief Director of the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) was subpoenaed to give evidence on a 20 billion old cedis judgement debt paid to Delta Foods by the state, but was absent and sitting was re-scheduled to today.

Available information is that the Government of Ghana bought 21 tonnes of maize from the company and failed to pay for it.

The matter was taken to court and judgement was entered in favour of Delta Foods, thus making the state to pay ¢20 billion (GH¢2 million) as judgement debt.

The other officer is the Chief Executive of the Ghana Highways Authority (GHA), who was also requested to produce construction certificates issued to Construction Pioneers, between 1991 and 2012.

According to the lead counsel for the Commission, Mr. Kofi Dometi Sokpor, the Chief Executive, said he had not received any subpoena.

Sitting continues today.
