The Minister of Transport, Dzifa Attivor, has resigned.

She tendered in her resignation due to the current issues surrounding the branding of the 116 buses.

Her resignation comes barely a day after a report commissioned by the Chief of Staff into the controversial contract was presented.

The revelation of the cost of the buses in the 2015 Annual Report on the Petroleum Revenues Fund has led to public debate with Parliament also asking for further answers on what led to the high cost.

Pulse.com.gh last Wednesday revealed that Smartyys Productions and Management is the company that executed the branding of 116 Bus Rapid Transit Buses(BRT) to the tune of GHS 3,649,044.

It has emerged that a pro-forma invoice dated 17th July 2015, and signed by the Accounts Officer of Smarttys Management and Productions and copied to the Ministry of Transport, put the total cost of branding for each bus at Ghc30,420.00.

The material cost for spraying one bus is GHc 14, 210.00 whiles  the cost of one vision sticker is GHc 10,000.

The Ministry of Transport has been the centre of controversy in parliament as debates on the 2016 budget continued.
