Investigate Ofori-Atta over Data Bank’s involvement in 3 B loan-Essuman
A Ghanaian citizen Benjamin Essuman has called on the Special Prosecutor to investigate the alleged involvement of Databank in the 3 billion loan Ghana just contracted from the European financial market.
It is the case of Mr. Essuman the percentage commission to be received by Databank, which he alleged belongs to Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, which ranges between US$ 3 million and US$30 million.
He is, therefore, asking the Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu to investigate “…how President Akufo Addo approved that the Minister of Finance appoint his own company Databank to be agents for the Government of Ghana in such transaction.”

Dear Mr. Special Prosecutor,
Databank has just received their percentage in the $3 billion loan Ghana just contracted from the European financial market. The percentage commission to be received by Databank ranges between US$ 3 million and US$30 million.
Please, Sir, you must investigate how President Akufo Addo approved that the Minister of Finance appoint his own company Databank to be agents for the Government of Ghana in such transaction.
Again, Mr Special Prosecutor, there is the need to investigate why Enterprise Assurance, a company of the Finance Minister became the insurer for all the ambulances that were recently procured by the government, commissioned by the President and distributed to the constituencies.
This principle of having to investigate a possible involvement of a President’s brother’s company in business ventures with the government of Ghana, as you are seeking to do in the Airbus matter, must certainly include you taking up these two issues seriously, in order to prove your consistency and adherence to principles.
Thank you and awaiting your public statement on this very matter as well.
