Haruna Iddrisu, Member of Parliament for Tamale South

News24, a major news portal in South Africa, published a report claiming that a local company that did some business in Ghana paid bribes to some senior politicians.

The report specifically mentioned Tamale South Member of Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu, who allegedly benefited from bribes worth more than US$2.5 million (R47 million).

News24's investigative report focused on the activities of the Singh brothers, Rochelle and Nishani, who ran the Ghana Infrastructure Corporation (GIC) between 2017 and 2022.

Parts of the report seen by GhanaWeb gave a breakdown of how various amounts of money were transferred to the legislator through others and in some cases through financial support for projects.

The money was paid in lieu of a profit share from a subcontract for the construction of Buipi Hospital and the construction of Haruna's private residence.

Payments made by Singh and GIC to Haruna Iddrisu

Between 2015 and 2020, Nishani Singh used several methods to pay Iddrisu directly, or to others at his request or for his benefit, at least R47 million.

The majority of the funds were paid directly from the GIC account to various suppliers, or to the GIC Ghana Director, Asoma Dokorogo.

This does not include payments for several overseas trips to London and at least one trip to Indonesia and South Africa.
