See me next week – Special Prosecutor tells suspended CEO

Suspended Chief Executive of the Public Procurement Authority is expected to meet the Office of Special Prosecutor next week.

JoyNews has learnt, the meeting is set for August 29, 2018.

The meeting follows the president’s referral of the troubled CEO to the Special Prosecutor after investigative work by award-winning journalist Manasseh Azure unearthed corruption at government’s central procurement authority.

The President has also referred his appointee to the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).

At both statutory bodies, the president wants AB Adjei investigated over conflict of interest allegations after he formed a company that sold government contracts to the highest bidder.

AB Adjei’s meeting with Martin Amidu who is the Special Prosecutor has been set at 10am Thursday.
