Minority Groups Are Criticizing The Akufo-Addo Administration For Wasting $2 Million On The Sky Train Project.

The government, led by ex-minister Joe Ghartey, paid a company $2 million for the abandoned Sky Train project, according to information provided by the minority in parliament.

When it was revealed in 2019 that Ghana had signed a deal with a South African company for a train project, Ghartey, then the minister for the development of railways, generated excitement both within Ghana and beyond of its borders.

In order to transport roughly 400,000 passengers annually inside Greater Accra, the project included constructing 194km of above-ground train tracks.

To everyone’s dismay, John Peter Amewu, the new minister appointed after Ghartey was fired by his superior President Nana Akufo-Addo, said that the project will not be completed any time soon.

On July 17, 2023, however, the Minority MPs alerted the media that “someone in government” had already given $2 million to the Mauritius-based Africa Investor Holdings Limited without getting permission from Parliament.

The opposition MP claimed that an evaluation by the Auditor General on the transaction revealed that the Mauritius firm lacked the necessary licenses to run the Sky Train.
