Mathew Opoku Prempeh(Napo) appeared before the vetting committee of parliament in full spirit and confidence on Friday 12th February 2020.

In answering these questions, Napo declined ever knowing Mr Kwadwo Darko Mensah, CEO of Blueglass Company Ltd as the executing company or it close partner which was charged with the duty to implement the failed contract. This prompted the BNI to effect the arrest of this fine gentleman to assist in further investigations.
The vetting committee probing on the matter further revealed that, the contract was partially delivered at a date later than the agreed sheduled as carefully stipulated in the contract and the undelivered part is no longer urgent now. The committee could not ascertained the exact number of the mathematical sets that was delivered out of the 853,000 as the first consignments.
The Bureau of National Investigation arrested Mr Darko Mensah following this revelation to aid in further investigations on how such an expensive contract could be vitiated with impunity.
