Director General of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) has dismissed claims that the Trust procured diaries and calendars for over ¢72 million.
Dr. John Ofori Tenkorang told Raymond Acquah on the Upfront Programme on MultiTv that SSNIT spent ¢191,000 on the 2017 calendars.
He added that the Trust only spent about ¢345,000 on these expenditure items.

“SSNIT buys these calendars and they are basically operational documents in the sense that there are dates that are important in our monthly business calendar,” Dr Tenkorang said.
The media space has been awash with claims that the Trust is once again engaged in frivolous spending with the latest being the purchase of some diaries and calendar at an exorbitant ¢72 million.
The Trust made headlines for all the wrong reasons in August when it was revealed that it spent $72 million to procure a faulty software from 2012 to 2016. The contract, awarded in 2012, was to automate processes at the Trust.
The software was to provide superior services to SSNIT customers, reduce member enrolment cycle through forms, provide effective reporting solution, achieve real-time processing of contribution reports and reduce benefit processing time.
The initial contract sum was $34 million but the Trust ended up spending more within the period of four years.
The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) uncovered the fraud during investigations into Head of SSNIT’s Management Information Systems, Caleb Afaglo’s crucial role in the controversial $72 million digitization contract.
