Ghana government denies Microsoft deal

We are not ignoring open source

 

The Ghanan government has denied that it has inked a binding deal with Microsoft to supply software for its schools. Rumours are that the government has turned its back on cheaper open source software in favour of a proposal coming from Redmond.

Minister of Communications Haruna Iddrisu has been slammed for committing huge funds to acquire software, ignoring open source alternatives. Redmond is getting into hot water for committing African governments into purchasing its software, denying them the chance to explore other alternatives.

Iddrisu said government is exploring its options before concluding any such agreement with Microsoft. He said that the government still was considering the use of open source and it would take a decision based on its national interest.
