AG presents report on Gh3.6m branded buses to Chief of Staff


The Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah has received for study, the report on the review of the contract for the spraying and branding of 116 buses for the Metro Mass Bus Transit Company which cost GhȻ3.6million.

The Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Mrs Marietta Brew Appiah-Opong, submitted the report on Tuesday in line with a directive from the Chief of Staff.

Mr Debrah in a statement following the massive public outcry against the significant amount that was used for the branding, ordered the AG to probe the matter and furnish his office with her findings by close of work on Tuesday December 22.

It is unclear what is contained in the AG report.
Smarttys Productions, the company which won the contract to brand the buses is also yet to officially comment on the matter but industry experts have said the amount charged by the company, owned by a known activist of the ruling party, actress Selassie Ibrahim was outrageous.

A pro-forma invoice dated 17th July 2015, and signed by the Accounts Officer of Smarttys Management and Productions and copied to the Ministry of Transport, put the total cost of branding for each bus at GhȻ30,420.00.
