Sinohydro projects: Parliament approves $69m tax waiver on equipment 1

Parliament has passed a $69 million tax waiver on the materials and equipment for the first phase of the $2 billion Sinohydro deal.

The request for the waiver rekindled debate on the question of value for money for the projects with both sides of Parliament taking entrenched positions.

The Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah once again insisted that value for money audit existed despite the assertions of Minority MP, Kwame Agbodza.

“That report exists. It exists as at the date we made the announcement that it exists. If he [Kwame Agbodza] wants to request that a copy of it be made available, he knows the proper thing to do,” Mr. Oppong Nkrumah said.

Minority Leader Haruna Idrissu in response said Kwame Agbodza had “every right to debate the report and to share his views.”

“If you have the report lay it. That is what is required. We demand that if you have the value for money report in Sinohydro, lay it,” Mr. Iddrisu stated to the Minister.
