I’m being crucified – Suspended PPA boss

The suspended head of the Public Procurement Authority  (PPA) says he is being persecuted by the public.

Mr.  Adjenim Boateng Adjei told newsmen after his initial interaction with the Special Prosecutor Thursday following the PPA scandal that he did nothing wrong.

“The public is simply speaking words of untruth. I regret the way I am being crucified for doing nothing”.

President Akufo-Addo suspended the CEO of the PPA, Mr AB Adjei, last week after allegations of conflict of interest among other infractions were broadcast in an investigative documentary conducted by journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni – titled – Contracts for Sale.

The President further referred the allegations, which include conflict of interest to the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), and those relating to potential acts of corruption to the Office of Special Prosecutor, for their prompt action.

Meanwhile, the board of the Public Procurement Authority says it is prepared to cooperate with the investigations involving its chief executive.

In a statement the board, whose supervisory role has come under scrutiny, said:” The Board fully welcomes HE the President’s directives to conduct investigations into the matter. The Board expresses its preparedness to cooperate with the investigations. PPA hereby assures the public that upon the conclusion of the said investigations, the role of the Board of the PPA in the granting of approvals for Restricted tendering and Single Source procurement in accordance with sections 38, 39, 40 and 41 respectively of the Public Procurement Act, 2003 [Act 663) as amended will be understood.

“The Board further assures the public that following the investigations ordered by HE the President, it will become evident that the Board of the PPA does not influence tender processes conducted in accordance with Act 663, as amended. In addition, we are optimistic that it becomes clearer to the public that the Board does not have any control over the selection of Suppliers, Contractors and Consultants for goods, works and services presented by procurement entities in their applications for approva for Restricted and Single Source procurement processes”.
