The Corporate Affairs Supervisor of the Ghana Exim Financial institution, Richard Anane, has admitted that the lender produced some upfront payments to artiste, Shatta Wale, and actor, Agya Koo via a organization it contracted for the functions of promoting “Made in Ghana” items.
He has however pressured that the amounts of GH¢2 million quoted for Shatta Wale and GH¢ 250,000 for Agya koo are wrong.
Talking to Joy FM’s News Night programme on Thursday September, 10, Mr. Anane explained that the contractual agreements arrived at with the artistes bar the bank from publicly disclosing the amounts compensated to the artistes.
But he insisted that the quantities are way down below the quantities alleged by Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak, who 1st elevated the situation at the Public Accounts Committee(PAC) meeting previously this 7 days.
“We are not misusing the banks funds…the quantity that we are supplying to these artistes is not that quantity that is out of array. It is not!” he emphasized.
Mr Anane taken care of that the lender adopted just about every lawful method in supplying the contract, and stays accountable to the general public.
“…We are a general public establishment. And we are answerable to general public establishments. This case arrived about for the reason that an Honourable member alleged that we have compensated an total of GHC 2million to ambassadors. And the financial institution is stating emphatically that we have not paid out that sum to an ambassador…We are all set to be answerable,” he said.
There is escalating controversy above allegations by Hon. Ras Mubarak that the bank built the payments to Shatta Wale and Agya Koo as brand name ambassadors for the bank.
