The Executive Director of Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), Linda Ofori Kwafo, has called on the government to publish the purported list of sole-sourced projects the president claimed to have made a savings of GHc2.75 billion from.
This follows a similar call by the main opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Tuesday.
President Nana Akufo-Addo had previously said his administration reduced sole sourcing contracts by 37 percent within his first year in office.
Questions over claims
General Secretary for the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia addressing the media on the back of President Akufo-Addo’s speech said the alleged rot at the PPA compromised the President;s claims.
President Akufo-Addo in August had to suspend Chief Executive Officer of the PPA, Adjenim Boateng Adjei over allegations of corruption and conflict of interest.
“President Akufo-Addo claimed that he had saved the country about GHc2.75 billion through the rejection of sole-sourced contracts presented to the PPA. Didn’t he know that the PPA boss was actually the source of the sole sourced contracts? We wish to submit this that, this claim is false and challenge the president to publish the full list of all the specific cases of savings.”
