Just last week, discussions over a 170 million dollars judgement debt awarded to GPGC Limited against the goverment of Ghana occupied almost every media outlet in the country, with the two major political parties highly soaked in what some described as unnecessary blame game. Without recovering from the shock and if you like the pain, it is emerging that another judgement has been awarded against the State.
According to a Facebook post by Roland Walker, a journalist with TV3, Ghana has been slapped with another judgement debt in favor of the West African Gas Limited, to the tune of 70 million US dollars. This he said follows the abrogation, by the claimant, West African Gas Limited of a Gas Sales Agreement on 9th October 2015, between the West African Gas Line and the the Republic of Ghana.
The company, WAGL is said to have terminated the agreement following claims that there were obstructions by the government of Ghana, which made it difficult for them to execute the contract.
