The Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, GPHA, is set to review all contracts and agreements entered into under the former administration of the National Democratic Congress, NDC.
The newly appointed Acting Director-General of the Authority, Paul Ansah, stated this when the Parliamentry Select Committee on Trade paid a working visit to the Tema Port.
According to Ansah, the contracts signed at the Authority will be reconsidered.
“I proposed the Port Infrastructure Development Fund in 2001, but it did not receive any attention. Thank God I am now the Director General and it will be implemented. If we had implemented in 2001, I believe we could have generated funding for this project and we will not need any money.
“All agreements, all contracts will be taken a second look at. Where there is the need to review, it will be reviewed, where there is the need to let it go; it will be let go. So we will look at the totality of all the package of all the projects, and see whether the conditions that are spelt out are entirely in our interest or not. If they are not ,what has to be done to secure the interest of our country better than it is, will be done”, he said.
