Sputnik V deal: Agyeman-Manu demands refund of cash from Dubai Shiekh

The Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu is demanding a refund from Sheikh Al Maktoum for some 300, 000 Sputnik V vaccines that were never supplied.

In a letter dated August 02, 2021, the Health Minister stated “By this letter, I also wish to formally request for the refund of the remaining amount for the non-supplied doses, which should be the total amount paid to your office, minus the amount due for the 20,000 doses you already supplied, in line with your earlier e-mail dated 25th July, 2021, in which it was affirmed that on the 13th April, 2021, funds were transferred into your accounts as fifty percent (50%) advance for the initial batch of 300,000 doses.”

The Health Minister has been under intense pressure after the botched agreement for the supply of Sputnik V vaccines with Sheikh Al Maktoum who acted as a middleman.

After presenting Ghana with 20,000 doses of the vaccine instead of the initially agreed doses of 300,000 for the first batch, the deal was subsequently terminated.

The Minority in Parliament on Friday demanded the dismissal of Health Minister Kwaku Agyemang Manu over breaches in the procurement of Sputnik V vaccines through middlemen.

A report from parliament’s Ad hoc committee investigating the matter indicted the Health Minister of failing to seek parliamentary approval among others.
