The vice President of IMANI Center For Policy And Education Think Tank Kofi Bentil has said that termination of the contract is the cause of Ghana's judgement debt and not those who started it.
According to him, the current energy minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh is innocent when it comes to the $170m judgement debt so he should ensure he does act any reckless like that.
He said it was the power minister under Kwabena Donkor who entered the contract due to emergency which he thinks was not very true. He said the country was deep in Dumsor and there was no need for rush in such agreement. He said that agreement has caused the country a lot of trouble.
He however indicated that even though the contract was a terrible one, it did not cause the judgement debt. All suggestions that it is those who signed the contract that caused the debt are totally unfounded.
He stated categorically that those who terminated the contract and did not do due diligence caused the $170m judgement debt for the country to cough out. He added that it was a reckless abandonment of responsibly and a dereliction of duty of the worst kind.
