A yet to be shown investigative documentary on the breach of procurement processes and wanton sale of road contracts by some top government appointees and officials of the Roads and Highways Ministry is already sending down shivers down the spines of some well-known top shots under the current administration.
The documentary titled ‘Contracts for sale’ is another revealing Investigative piece by award winning investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni formally of the Multimedia Group.
It is set to be shown this week on JoyNews and also YouTube channel of the journalist.
In the countdown to the day of airing, Manasseh Azure Awuni has been dropping some hints which suggest that it would be difficult for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo to clear any of the officials captured in the documentary for wrongdoing.
“It will be impossible for the Chief Clearing Agent to clear this one. You want to bet”? He challenged in a Facebook post seen by MyNewsGh.com.
In another post, he intimated that “A noble man may be fired or forced to resign before the story is aired”.
In a video teaser that has gone viral on social media, some officials of the Roads and Highways Ministry were captured receiving hefty envelopes containing what is suspected to be cash in exchange for contract documents.
The corrupt practice as seen in the less than 2-minutes video resulted in the stalling of some road projects which were shoddily constructed to the disappointment of road users.
This new explosive expose by Manasseh Azure Awuni is expected to shake the pillars of the Akufo Addo administration in the fight against corruption.
It comes after ‘Millitia in the heart of the city’, a documentary that placed a spotlight on the activities of a group of persons using the Osu castle as a training grounds for private security personnel.
