The Minority Caucus of Parliament led by Haruna Iddrisu has raised an alarm over what they called a “conflict of interest ” involving the Finance Minister as Gov’t doles out over GHc10M of COVID-19 cash to Enterprise Life as insurance premium for Frontline health workers.

Addressing Journalists in Parliament, Mr. Iddrisu said, Government has engaged an insurance company, Enterprise Life, a subsidiary of the Enterprise Group and paid ten million, three hundred and nine thousand, nine hundred and nineteen Ghana cedis, ninety-four Ghana pesewas (GH¢10,309,919) as insurance premium.

According to him, “We all know the faces behind Enterprise Group. At least we know that the Minister for Finance, Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta, and cousin of President Nana Addo is a beneficiary owner of the Enterprise Group”.

The Minority Caucus accused the President for not opening up to other companies in the insurance industry through competitive bidding processes.

They therefore called on Government to account to the good people of Ghana on how the COVID-19 moneys including loans, grants, allocations and donations have been expended.

President Nana Akufo-Addo on Sunday, 5th April 2020 announced an insurance package for all frontline health workers.
