Ghana Maritime Authority blows over 140k on food and drinks

By on

It has emerged that the Ghana Maritime Authority in November and December 2017 spent over GHc140, 000 on food and music at separate events for staff and stakeholders.

A memo intercepted revealed that on November 08, 2018, an amount GHc10, 652.05 worth of food was supplied to the authority by LUXE SUITES and HOTEL after a management and stakeholder meeting involving eight people.

Another Memo on December 28, 2018, also revealed that GHc135, 125.00 was spent on food, drinks and music for staff during the end of year dinner party.

Parts of the memo read “I write to request for the release of an amount of One Hundred and Thirty-Five Thousand One hundred and Twenty Five Ghana Cedis (GHC135, 125.00) to LUXE SUITES HOTEL as cost of food, drinks and music that were provided for staff and protocols during the end of year dinner party on Friday 22nd December, 2017.”

Both memos were addressed to the Director General of the Ghana Maritime Authority, Mr. Kwame Owusu.

Mr. Owusu was appointed by President Nana Akufo-Addo as the Director General of Ghana Maritime Authority in 2017.

Conflict of interest questions are also being asked after it emerged that Mr. Owusu is also the Group Chairman of LUXE SUITES and HOTEL – the company that supplied the food and drinks to the maritime authority.

Several attempts to get a response from the Mr. Owusu has proved futile as calls placed to his phone went unanswered.
