The Akufo Addo administration is creating a traffic jam of corruption cases in the minds of Ghanaians, the opposition National Democratic Congress has said.

The NDC says it is "deeply worried and appalled" at the rate at which the Nana Addo administtation is being hit by corruption scandals in less than 3 years in power.

Speaking on Wednesday at it's 5th edition of the "Moment of Truth" program, Communication Officer Sammy Gyamfi said PresidentAkufo Addo and members of his party have failed in fighting corruption and have instead, "turned the whole government apparatus into an organized crime agency for the sole purpose of looting and milking the state dry without shame or conscience".

His claim follows a recent corruption allegation against now-suspended Public Procurement Authority(PPA) boss Adjenim Boateng Adjei.

Mr Adjei has been suspended by the President Akufo Addo following his involvement in the sale of Government contracts in Manasseh Awuni's latest investigative piece dubbed "Contract for Sale"

But the NDC describes the suspension as just a camouflage, daring the President to dissolve the entire board of the PPA.

"Ladies and gentlemen, the conduct of Mr. AB Adjei as captured in the “Donkomi” documentary is only a reflection of the grand corruption and in some cases daylight heist that is being practised at the topmost echelons of the Akufo-Addo government.

"Under the almost three (3) years tenure of President Akufo-Addo, it’s been one stinky corruption scandal after the other with no end in sight. The NPP’s famous campaign rhetoric of ID1F has now metamorphosed into One Day, One Fraud, thereby creating a traffic jam of corruption cases in the minds of Ghanaians."

The NDC believes suspension of Mr Adjei is not enough and have called for his arrest

"We demand the immediate arrest and prosecution of Mr. A.B Adjei,"the party said.
