E&P denies involvement in AMERI deal

e&pThe management of Engineers & Planners Company Limited (E&P) has in a statement denied any link to the AMERI Energy Power Project.

The company said it is in no way “involved and has no role in AMERI’s contract with the Government of Ghana and the purchase or sourcing of power turbines by AMERI for the generation of power.”

This reaction comes on the back of accusations by the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Monday that E&P was connected to the AMERI Energy Power Project; a situation which they said was “a serious cause for concern.” T

The NPP also said the President, John Mahama was once a director of E&P but the company has denied all these claims.

Below is the full statement from E&P

A statement from the management of the Company states as follows:

President John Dramani Mahama has never been a director or involved in any way with the Board or Management of E&P Company Limited.

Engineers & Planners Company Limited is an international Civil Engineering and Mining Contracting Firm with considerable international repute and has been executing contracts for several global blue chip companies in these fields.

Engineers and Planners was contracted by the Volta River Authority (VRA) to undertake some civil works at Aboadze to prepare a platform to receive the power generating units and other ancillary equipment for the AMERI 250MW Power Project.

Engineers and Planners finished its work as specified and has handed over the completed platform to the VRA.

Engineers and Planners is in no way involved and has no role in AMERI’s contract with the Government of Ghana and the purchase or sourcing of power turbines by AMERI for the generation of power.

This is not and will not be the last international standard civil and mechanical engineering work E&P will be executing in Ghana or elsewhere, and we want to assure our clients and all Ghanaians that E&P is a diligent company working transparently in Ghana and elsewhere and fulfilling its obligations as a good corporate citizen.

Engineers & Planners has noted with concern a penchant by some political parties including the New Patriotic Party and its officials to draw it into their political jousts with opponents.

Engineers and Planners wishes to caution that it has legal rights and shall not hesitate to exercise these to clear its name if this situation persists.
