The office of the Special Prosecutor has invited the Coordinator for Special Initiatives at the Jubilee House for questioning over a contract awarded by Northern Development Authority (NDA).

Several serving officers, including the Chief Executive, and relevant past officers of the NDA and officers of A&Qs Consortium have also been invited.

This is related to a contract awarded by the NDA to A&Qs consortium for consultant services under the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme.

Per a statement issued dated July 26, 2022 and signed by the Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyabeng, said the issue of concern is in respect to the quantum of the contract sum.
