The Minister for Communications Mrs. Ursula Owusu Ekuful has told Citi Business News investigations into the alleged 4 million dollars scandal at the National Communications Authority (NCA) is ongoing.
Media reports in May this year alleged that the former Director-General of the NCA, William Tevie, and some other workers withdrew 4 million dollars from the coffers of the state fund.
Mr. Tevie, however denied involvement in any corruption scandal that has hit his tenure while in office.
Speaking to Citi Business News on developments after the story broke; Mrs. Ursula Owusu Ekuful stated that government is determined to reach the bottom of the case.
“The investigations are still continuing, I haven’t heard of the outcome of those investigations. But we are determined to get to the bottom of those issues. We want to make sure that the law is applied fairly,” she observed.
“ If anybody is exonerated that is it, if anybody is found culpable the law is applied. At least the process has to continue so that it helps them to clear their names if they haven’t done anything wrong,” she added.
Mrs. Owusu Ekuful maintained that it is important for the investigations to complete before the ministry can come out with further statements.
The Minister spoke to Citi Business News at the inauguration of the NCA board of directors.
The NCA board is chaired by communications expert, Kwaku Sakyi Addo and has other members including: Joe Anokye, Kwabena Adu-Boahene, Bernard Aidoo-Forson, Philip Asare Kwame Ayesu, David Gyewu, and Susan-Barbara Adjorkor Boye Kumapley.
