A former presidential staffer under the erstwhile Mahama administration, Stan Dogbe has called for the head of the former Member of Parliament, E.T Mensah over the Saglemi Housing Project.

According to him, per the documents available to him, all the contracts were signed by him. Therefore, if government has raised some red flags in the deal, then E.T Mensah needs to be prosecuted.

In a Facebook post sighted by GhanaWeb, Stan Dogbe said, “Upon my review of documents available to me, on the matter of the Saglemi Housing project, which agreement including the EPC and Works Contracts were all, and I mean all, signed by the then Minister for Water Resources, Works and Housing, Enoch Teye Mensah, I can safely conclude and say that if indeed there’s been any untoward conduct, loss of funds to the State, or a legally reasonable reason to prosecute anybody in relation to that project, then the person the Attorney General should be prosecuting is Mr Enoch Teye Mensah, the then Minister."
