Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga, has lodged another complaint with the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) regarding the ongoing construction of the new Bank of Ghana (BoG) Complex.

In his initial complaint, Ayariga alleged corruption involving the Bank’s governor, deputy governors, the board of directors, and the project contractor, Goldkey Properties Ltd.

He also raised concerns about the significant escalation in the project’s cost from USD 121,807,517.94 to USD 222,799,760.55, despite minimal changes in the project’s scope.

In his earlier complaint, Ayariga emphasised the OSP’s mandate to investigate suspected cases of corruption and urged transparency in the use of public funds.

In a subsequent letter to the OSP dated Monday, March 11, Ayariga sought an update on the progress of the investigation.

“This is to follow up on your investigation of the complaint of suspected procurement breaches relating to the new headquarters building of the Bank of Ghana at Ridge, Accra.

“You will recall that in October 2023, I made a formal complaint to your office and requested that you investigate what I believed to be a case of corruption in the procurement of the new headquarters building of the Bank of Ghana at Ridge in Accra.

The suspects, in this case, included the governor and the deputy governors of the Bank of Ghana, namely: (1) Dr Ernest Kwamina Addison (Governor), (2) Maxwell Opoku-Afari (First Deputy Governor), and (3) Elsie Ado Awadzi (Second Deputy Governor),” an excerpt of the statement said.
