A political pressure group Concerned Voter Movement has registered its displeasure in the Kojo Graham Vas-Intel Pilot Project for the Electronic Policing.
The group President Razack Kojo Opoku made this known in a press Statement copied to Kessbenfm.com and below is the full press release from CVM.
CVM would like to ask the following simple questions:
1. Procurement Minister & Minister of Interior why are you allowing Kojo Graham Vas-Intel to embark on a Piloting Project for the Ghana Police Service without competitive bidding?
2. Does the Government want to wait for a contract to be awarded under sole source to Kojo Graham Vas-Intel for Electronic Policing before the Government acts and makes unnecessary noise into the ears of Ghanaians?
3. IGP respectfully did you give the greenlight to Kojo Graham Vas-Intel to start the Piloting Project for the Electronic Policing at the detriment of competitive companies?
4. Is it right for Kojo Graham Vas-Intel, a subsidiary of Lots-Services Ghana Limited and their Partner Stratom to have access to the Security Data of Ghanaians?
5. Does the laws of Ghana permit a foreign based company Stratom
to have access to the Security Data of the Ghana Police Service under a Piloting Project?
6. Has Stratom, a USA based company registered with the Registrar-General Department of Ghana?
7. Has Stratom registered with the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre alongside Vas-Intel?
8. We are told that Vas-Intel, Stratom and University of Ghana have formed a Consortium to embark on the Piloting Project for the Electronic Policing.
We want to know from the Ghana Police Service, is the Consortium legally registered in Ghana before the greenlight was given to them to start the Piloting of the Electronic Policing Project? And when was it registered?
9. Can the Ghana Police Service ignore Kojo Graham Vas-Intel and award the contract to a different company after the successful completion of the Piloting Project?
10. Will the Ghana Police Service compromise and award the contract to Kojo Graham Vas-Intel after the successful completion of the Piloting at the 26 Police Stations since Vas-Intel and Stratom are using their own resources to do the Piloting of Electronic Policing free of charge, at no cost to the Ghana Police Service?
