The attorney general made it clear that because people provided us with the facility The Chinese have some conditions, and the condition is to use a Chinese company, so the competent authority can continue to sign Huawei technology. Look, our Chinese sellers in Ghana are trading here.”

“We have conducted due diligence on them. Therefore, I am not troubled, I am not worried about anything.”

He added: “My information and the real information of PPA, PPA allowed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to sign a contract with the new supplier Huawei in the name of the Republic of Ghana, and authorized and cleared the transaction. It did not proceed, and further hinted and stated. : The Ministry of Highways should terminate the contract with Beijing Tianwei.”
