Lawyers of Smarttys Management Limited – the company that rebranded government buses at a controversial amount- have met with the Attorney General to discuss a refund plan for the excess amount in the contentious contract.
This was disclosed by President John Mahama at media briefing at the Flagstaff House Tuesday.
According to him, government is bent on retrieving the GHC 1.9 million excess payment as advised by the attorney general and will not relent on it.
The GHC3.6 million that given to Smarttys for rebranding 116 government buses became a matter of public concern as many Ghanaians were incensed by the outrageous fee charged by the company owned by actress Selassie Ibrahim.
“…Yesterday, the lawyers of the company met with Attorney General to agree on a payment plan to refund the excess money,” Mr Mahama stated.
