I'll recuse myself if Kantanka bids for government contract – Adwoa Safo

The nominee Minister of State of Procurement, Adwoa Safo, has said she will recuse herself if Kantanka Automobile limited, a company owned by her family, bids for a government contract.

The Minister-designate is expected to push for major changes in public procurement and make sure in procurement there will be fairness, non-discrimination, value for money, and, to a very large extent, integrity.

To this end, she told the vetting committee in parliament on Monday, 27 March: “I foresee in the event that Kantanka Automobile Company Limited, owned by my family, should bid for a contract, I obviously will have a vested interest in and I will recuse myself accordingly.”

Kantanka Automobile Company Limited is a subsidiary of the Kantanka Group of Companies founded by Apostle Dr Ing. Kwadwo Safo Kantanka, the Founder and Leader of Kristo Asafo Mission of Ghana.

Kantanka vehicles are manufactured and assembled in Ghana. The Kantanka range of cars includes both saloon and SUVs.
