RE: NPP Questions last-minute Ghc93m RLG contract

The Ministry of Communications wishes to set the record straight on a misleading story with the above caption.

The decision to procure Set top boxes as part of the Digital Migration Process is a Cabinet decision. And the procurement process has travelled through the entire process up to the Central Tender Review Board. The Attorney General's Department- offered its opinion on the contract prior to signing.

The formal written request for an advance payment by the company, rlg, against a payment guarantee has been scrutinized and further submitted to the Attorney General's Department for expert advice- due diligence.

The Ministry of Communications is therefore wondering the source and or motivation for this misrepresented account.

We wish to assure that the ministry has always operated professionally and will continue to do same even within this period of transition. We will continue to operate an open door policy and urge starrfmonline.com not to abandon the tenets of journalism.

Needless to say we wish to place on record that no money has been advanced to the company.

(Signed)
