CHRAJ REPORT: "Your Silence On Boateng Adjei Is Unacceptable" Governance Watch GH To Akufo-Addo
The Leadership of Governance Watch Ghana, a Civil Society Organization with a specific focus on governance, accountability, human rights says it is unhappy about President Akufo-Addo's silence on CHRAJ's report which bothers on the conduct of the former Chief Executive Officer of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA), Adjenim Boateng Adjei involving “contract for sale” a documentary by Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azuri Awuni.
According to the civil society organization, the report by CHRAJ is after a complaint submitted by President Akufo-Addo for an investigation into the said conduct of Mr. Adjenim Boateng Adjei.
In a release sighted by ThinkNews Online, it said "We have also taken note of the letter terminating his appointment dated 30th October 2020 signed by the Director of Communications at the Presidency. While we commend the efforts to ensure the final termination of the appointment of Mr. Adjei following the adverse findings by CHRAJ in line with the fight against corruption, we are unsatisfied with the fact that the Office of the President is silent on prosecuting Mr. Adjei for the improprieties established in the findings of the CHRAJ report"
The statement further mentioned that the findings spelled out under point 10.0 headed “SUMMARY OF KEY FINDINGS OF THE INVESTIGATION” contained on page 181-182 of the report, concludes that Mr. Adjei positioned himself at all material times in a manner that placed his personal interest ahead of the public office he was expected to protect.
It also noted that the report revealed how Mr Adjei had transactions conducted on his bank accounts that are questionable as the volume exceeded his salary without any convincing explanation from him.
