GNPC Foundation has described as "unfair" claims that the cost of the construction of artificial turfs has been inflated.
The Member of Parliament(MP) for North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said that there were inflated costs in the construction of the artificial turfs by the Ghana National Petroleum Commission.
But speaking to Nana Yaw Kesseh on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', Dr Dominic Eduah, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Foundation said: "It's unfair . . . maybe he didn't study it well because I'm sure if he did he won't put such information out there. The figure only represents 20% of the total contract sum of GHS1,599,065.00 per facility in 2019-2020. Thus, the GH319,813.00 quoted in the PIAC report represents progress payment based on milestone.”
Meanwhile, in a statement, the Foundation says, “The figure as contained in the 2021 PIAC Report represents how much had been expended on each project as at the reporting time rather than the total cost per Astroturf facility,” adding “Honourable Okudzeto’s interpretation of the reported figure of GHS319,813.00 as the unit cost of each Astroturf is factually inaccurate and misleading".
