Gov’t blows $40m on dictionaries Under President Mahama's Watch ? !

The Ministry of Education (MoE) is reportedly entering into a $40 million contract which sources say looks bizarre and dodgy.

The contract, which is said to have already gone to tender, is meant for the supply of English Dictionaries for Basic Schools, with payment slated for the year 2017, even in the event that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration leaves power.

The payment arrangement in the contract has raised eyebrows as to the propriety of the entire deal.

The deal is coming on the heels of a similar dodgy contract of $44 million for the printing of Atlases for basic schools which debt is yet to be settled with the publishers – Approachers.
