“[Stephen] Asamoah Boateng (Asabee) held a management meeting during which he

told senior officials of the Ministry of the need to suspend all investment

activities already budgeted for 2008 in order to direct those funds for

renovation works at the Ministerial Block. The renovation work included tiling

of the offices. For the renovation works to commence, Asamoah Boateng brought

Zuleika [his wife] as the contractor in charge of the renovation works…

investigations revealed that Zuleika was not qualified to take up the job adding

that at that time, she was in charge of a boutique business known as Lady Zee

Intimate and Body Shop…” Ghanaweb, Aug 17, 2009).

“Accra, Jan. 12, GNA – “The Fast Track High Court on Wednesday ordered that a

hearing notice should be served on the Attorney General in the case in which

Stephen Asamoah Boateng [Asabee], ex-Minister of Minister of Information and

National Orientation, and a number of other people, are being held for allegedly

failing to follow due process before rehabilitating the Ministry's Block”
