Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook Al Maktoum, the Dubai-based businessman contracted by the Ministry of Health for the botched procurement of 300,000 doses of Sputnik V vaccine has agreed to refund $2,470,000 to Ghana.

This was after the Ministry wrote to him for a refund. A letter dated second of this month, signed by the Minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu, and addressed to the businessman requested a refund of the said amount paid for undelivered doses of the vaccine.

Mr. Agyemang Manu in the letter formally requested for the refund of the remaining amount for the non-supplied doses, which should be the total amount paid to Sheik Ahmed Dalmok Al Maktoum’s office minus the amount due for the 20,000 doses he already supplied.

Responding to the Minister’s request in another letter from the businessman, he has agreed to refund the said amount to Ghana. He has therefore asked the Ministry to confirm the amount and provide account details through which the refund should be processed.

It emerged in a report following the botched Sputnik V vaccine deal that Ghana paid more than $2,850,000 to Sheikh Al Maktoum for the procurement of Sputnik V vaccines.

This is contrary to an earlier claim by the Minister of Health, that the state has not expended any money towards the procurement of the vaccine through Sheikh Al Maktoum, a businessman based in Dubai.
