Russia's Sputnik V to cost Ghana $130,000,000?

A supplier, S. L. Global Limited according to investigations has revealed that this entity was contracted by the Ministry of Health to purchase the Russian Coronavirus vaccine, Sputnik for $26 per dose for a whopping $130,000,000 million.

This comes at the back of the leaked report from a Norwegian media house and an investigative report that was conducted by one Norwegian Journalist, Markus Tobiassen.

Investigations revealed that the Ministry of Finance had given clearance for the orders to be made, and the Ministry of Health had ordered for 5 million doses to be brought into the country.

Also, an Emirati who was initially involved in the Ameri Power plant deal, and a Norwegian who has been charged of money laundering are secretly involved in this procurement exercise.

In a 25-page document sighted by some top media houses in the country, it reveals that the actual price of the vaccine on the world market is only $10 but, when it comes to the Ghanaian case, it has risen to $26 and its likely to rise as some expenses of the company carrying out this activity are not included here. 

Investigations further reveled that the drugs would be delivered in batches, and the contracted company, S. L. Global Limited is a Ghanaian owned business that is duping the nation such a huge amount.

When the Norwegian investigators contacted Ghana's ministry fingered in this deal, it only said it is purchasing the drugs to protect the citizens of the nation.
