Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has described Ghana’s involvement in the Airbus bribery scandal as by far the biggest international disgrace to the country.
Speaking on the AM Show on Joy News, Mr Nkrumah asserted that the scandal had had a huge negative global impact on the country.
The Minister called for concerted efforts from Civil Society Organisations and the media to press the various anti-graft institutions to deliver in bringing to book the public officials involved in the bribery scandal.
Airbus, Europe’s largest aerospace multinational in a United Kingdom Court admitted to paying huge bribes in order to secure high-valued contracts in Ghana, under the erstwhile Mills-Mahama administration for which it was slapped with a fine of £ 3 billion euros (£3bn) as penalties.
