Court dismisses West Blue case against government
A Court has dismissed the case by a private freight forwarder Michael Kweku Djan, who is taking on government in what he says is clear breach of the 1992 Constitution by sole sourcing the National Single Window and Risk Management System Project to West Blue Ghana Limited.
According to the ruling of the court even though the court the action brought before it by the applicant was a preemptive one and could not hold his demands.
The court also over ruled an objection by the attorney general questioning its jurisdiction to hear matter. In his ruling Justice Anthony Yeboah said the court had the jurisdiction and the applicant Mr. Djan had the capacity to come to court on the matter.
Micheal Kweku Gyan was seeking an injunction to stop government from contracting West Blue Ghana limited to manage its single window policy.
The plaintiff contends that the possible engagement of their company affects his economic rights.
He argued that the presidents directive to the Minister of Finance to engage West Blue flouts the procurement law, further describing the move as discriminatory.
