Mrs Attivor tended in her resignation after public criticisms chastised her Ministry for ‘wasting’ $3.6 million on rebranding 116 Metro Mass Transit buses.
Parliament has given indications that it will probe the resignation of Transport Minister, Dzifa Attivor, following the bus re-branding scandal.
The Chairman of Parliament’s Transport Committee, Theophilus Tetteh Chaie said: “We need to know exactly what went wrong so that will also inform us to continue with our oversight work in an advanced manner so definitely we will go for the report.”
Mrs Attivor tended in her resignation after public criticisms chastised her Ministry for ‘wasting’ $3.6 million on re-branding 116 Metro Mass Transit buses.
The Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah ordered Smarttys Management Limited, the company contracted to re-brand the buses to refund GHC 1.9 million to the state after investigations carried out by the Attorney General revealed that Smarttys had been overpaid.
The report also indicated that the cost of the re-branding of the buses was inflated.
In an interview with Accra based Joy FM, Mr. Tetteh Chaie disclosed that the Committee has requested a copy of the investigative report to be made available to them.
He however, indicated that the country and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government have lost “a very, very important Minister.”
