Albert Kan-Dapaah, former minister of state under the former NPP administration has defended the government’s decision to sell Ghana Telecom to Vodafone.

The John Agyekum Kufuor-administration sold Ghana Telecom to Vodafone at an estimated price of $900 million in 2008 giving away 70% of the company to  Vodafone.
