A prominent member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dr. Arthur K. Kennedy has stated that President Akufo-Addo can no longer claim he is not corrupt because “a President who is not corrupt but permits corruption would ultimately be judged by history to be corrupt.”
Commenting on the scandals that have rocked the current NPP administration, Mr. Kennedy avers that the President’s actions have been reactive, timid and puny.
His comments are on the back of the “Contracts for Sale” documentary by Manasseh Azure Awuni which uncovered that the Chief Executive Officer ( CEO) of Public Procurement Authority (PPA), Mr. Adjei Boateng Adjei, was engaged in buying and selling government contracts using his company.
The CEO has been suspended and is being investigated. He has also appeared in court to answer charges against him.
But Mr. Arthur Kennedy has criticized the President for even having appointed people with “a past history of corrupt motives.”
”Why have so many with a past history suggestive of corrupt motives found places in his government? He asked.
The PPA CEO had been involved in alleged acts of malfeasance in the early 2000s.
