Boateng accuses Ghana government over theft of project idea
AllAfrica reports that business development consultant Benjamin Okyere Boateng has accused the Ghanaian government of flouting the terms of a business agreement, following which the concept of the multibillion dollar "Ghana2kplus" project was subsequently stolen. Boateng, the Managing Director of Agrocomotel and former Vice President of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) is seeking an audience with the President of Ghana which will focus on, among other topics, the alleged disrespect for intellectual property rights by professionals, politicians and civil and public servants. Legal action is threatened if a settlement of his claims cannot be successfully negotiated.
