Menergy in court to claim properties from SSNIT

ssnitMenergy, an oilfield Services Provider is praying the Sekondi High Court One to help the company secure its GH¢5.2 billion land and other properties from the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT).

The properties which were originally owned by Ghana Railways Company were sold by SSNIT after a court gave the go ahead to defray a GH¢12.8 million debt owed to SSNIT in terms of non-payment of workers contributions.

After the court adjourned the case to April 18, Mr Michael Owusu-Awuah, Menergy Company Lawyer, told reporters that the company bought the property on July 22, 2010 when SSNIT auctioned it and had been issued a purchase certificate.

He expressed wonder why Railways Company is claiming possession of the facility, which had already been sold on a court order by its debtors.

Mr Owusu-Awuah said it therefore came as a surprise when, Menergy, the new owners of the facility were prevented by the Acting Manager of Railways Company and some Police Personnel when they attempted to pull the Railways Transit Quarters and other adjourning facilities on  February 6 to make way for new projects.

“The Acting Manager has a contempt case pending against him,” Mr Owusu-Awuah said.
