The Minority in Parliament is set to move a motion for a Bi-partisan Parliamentary Inquiry into the award of a contract to Frontiers Healthcare Solution Services Limited for COVID-19 testing at the Kotoka International Airport by Government.
The move by the NDC MPs follows the failure of about four ministerial nominees who appeared before the Appointments Committee to speak to details on the contract which costs passengers 150 dollars.
Addressing the media in Parliament, Minority Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs and MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said the evasive answers from nominees who were directly related to the deal smacks of an attempt to cover up illegality.
The motion by the Minority is expected to be moved when the House resumes next month.
The North Tongu MP also accused the government of breaching Section 41 of the Public Procurement Act, Fees and Charges Act and Section 11 of the Health Institutions and Facilities Act in the award of the contract for the conduct of the testing at the Airport.
