Ibrahim Mahama

The Accra District Court has dismissed a case against Engineers and Planners and its Chief Executive , Mr Ibrahim Mahama over non payment of social security contribution.

The court dismissed the case after the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) withdrew the case against the business mogul, Graphic Online’s Court reporter Emmanuel Ebo Hawkson who was in court on Saturday morning reported.

SSNIT dragged the company, Mr Mahama and three other directors to court for failing to pay over Gh¢1million in social security contributions and a penalty for failing to pay the contribution.

Lawyer for the company, Ms Nancy Amartefio, prayed the court to dismiss the case because Engineers and Planners had already paid more than Gh¢2million to SSNIT in excess of the amount owed, Hawkson reported.

The prosecutor, Ms Leena Adomah Boakye, explained that the company paid the debt on April 28, 2017, a day before the case was heard in court .

She, however, informed the court that her superiors had instructed her to withdraw the case.

Mr Ibrahim Mahama himself, a junior brother to former President John Mahama was in court on Saturday morning.
