Smarttys ordered to refund GH¢1.9 million

The Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah has ordered the Attorney General and Minister for Justice to recover GH¢1.9 million from Smartty’s Management Limited for the rebranding of  116 buses.

A statement from the Flagstaff House on Thursday indicated that the directive was given upon the Chief of Staff's receipt of the Attorney General’s report
on the spraying and branding of 116 new buses procured for the Metro Mass Transit Company Limited.
The GH¢1.9 million is said to be excess payment made for the service rendered.
The Chief of Staff last week requested the Attorney General to conduct an urgent review of the contract following concerns raised about the cost of the spraying and branding exercise.
