Investigative Journalist, Kevin Taylor has stated hinted that he will from tomorrow, Monday, November 2, 2020 drop the actual amount uncovered from the accounts of the sacked Boss of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA), Mr. AB Adjei during the Contract for Sale investigations by the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).
According to Mr. Taylor on his Facebook post, President “Akufo Addo is deceiving Ghanaians with this small amount from AB AJEI deals at PPA.”
“Ok I will show you guys the real amount” – he promised
The fearless journalist has further hinted that from Monday, “I will expose CHRAJ, the Special Prosecutor and Auditor- General big time”
It is not year clear the role these other institutions like Auditor-General, Office of the Special Prosecutor have played in what he is describing as a cover-up of the real amount uncovered by CHRAJ in the various bank accounts from the PPA Boss.
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.
The journalist filed a case of corruption and conflict of interest against the public officer at the CHRAJ. A few days ago CHRAJ has released its investigation’s report finding the PPA Boss guilty of several offences leading to the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo sacking the PPA Boss three days ago.
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 finding reports of the number of monies uncovered in the accounts of the PPA Boss, Kevin Taylor is saying does not reflect the true state of affairs hence pledging to release documents from tomorrow on the actual amounts in the accounts of the PPA.
