The CSO Coalition working against corruption has welcomed government’s prompt action to suspend embattled CEO of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA), Adjenim Boateng Adjei.
However, they want President Akufo-Addo to suspend the entire Board of the PPA pending investigations from the Office of the Special Prosecutor and Commission on Human Right and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).
The Coalition made up of Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA), Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC), Amnesty International, Citizen’s Movement Against Corruption (CMaC) and Africa Center for International Law Accountability (ACILA) also wants suspension of the use of restricted tendering and single-source processes while investigations are underway.
They want the President to instruct all other investigative bodies not to initiate or trigger any parallel investigations to the OSP-CHRAJ probe.
