Ghanaian Investigative Journalist, Kevin Taylor has said the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has lied about the amounts uncovered in the bank accounts of the sacked CEO of the Public Procurement Authority, Mr. Adjenim Boateng Adjei in their report on Contract for Sale investigations.
According to kevin Taylor the CHRAJ report on the scandal was sent to the Jubilee House – the seat of government where editing was done on the amounts that should be put in the public domain adding that someone at the presidency is protecting Mr. Adjenim Boateng Adjei.
If you can recall, investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni released an investigative documentary last year in which the Boss of the PPA was cited for breach of various procurement rules and sold government contracts to companies some of which belong to himself.
According to CHRAJ “the evidence established a pattern of movement of large volumes of cash through the Respondent’s Adjenim Boateng Adjei Bank Accounts between March 2017 and August 2019, far in excess of his known income;
1. Stanbic Bank:
a. USD Account – $516,225.00;
b. Cedi Account – ¢3.83 million;
c. Euro Account – EU54.500;
2. UMB Bank: $110,000.
The Respondent Adjenim Boateng Adjei could not offer a satisfactory explanation to the source of that huge volume of cash that passed through his bank account between March 2017 and August 2019 (unexplained wealth).”
This does not reflect the true state of affairs hence the actual documents will release the amounts in the accounts of the PPA Boss.
