Baba Kamara, a former deputy treasurer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) accused of collecting bribes from a UK construction firm has had his ambassadorial dreams jolted, at least for now.

The ambassador designate for Nigeria was due to be given his letters of credence but his name was struck out from a list of would-be envoys. Critics have linked governments failure or refusal to provide his letters of credence to the bribery allegations in which he and some functionaries of the ruling NDC, past and serving, were accused of inflating project prices undertaken in Ghana by a UK construction firm, Mabey & Johnson in the 1990s.

Sources at the Foreign Ministry have meanwhile explained that Baba Kamara will be commissioned immediately the Nigerian government approves his letters of agreement sent on his behalf by the Ghanaian government. Yet on the Mabey and Johnson case, the Attorney General, Mrs Betty Mould Iddrisu who was dispatched to the UK for fact finding by President Mills is due back in Ghana Wednesday night.

She has been tasked to conduct thorough investigations into the allegations, and advise government accordingly. Critics have vehemently argued for the resignation of the named officials, pending the outcome of the investigations.
