The president of policy think tank, IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe has advised Members of Parliament to ask the Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu probing questions on the controversial $89 million Kelni GVG contract when she appears before the House on Tuesday.

According to Mr Cudjoe, the MPs should not allow the Minister to hoodwink them but ask relevant questions including benefits the country will derive from the deal.

“Tuesday when you meet in parliament demand this particular question to be answered: what are we getting in return, don't let them bamboozle you by saying to you that, they are saving $1.1 million of the previous deal, which was bad according to them,” he said on Citi FM's analysis program on Saturday.
