National Communication Officer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Comrade Sammy Gyamfi in another edition of “Moment of Truth” at the party’s headquarters has revealed that the Public Procurement Authority (PPA) scandal goes beyond the suspended CEO, Mr. A.B Adjei and his “fraudulent” TDL Company.

According to him, the PPA boss and his Talent Discovery Limited (TDL) Company are being used as a smokescreen to conceal a whole syndicate of organized crime in the high echelons of the Akufo-Addo government.

Address the media on the theme “PPA-Donkomi Contract for Sale” in the party’s edition of the “Moment of Truth”, Sammy Gyamfi explained that the contracts which have been awarded to TDL in the last two years emanated from, and in fact, were awarded by several Ministries and State Agencies such as the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Roads and Highways, Ministry of Works and Housing, Ministry of Special Development Initiatives, Ministry of Inner Cities and Zongo Development, COCOBOD, Ghana Water Company Limited, the Bank of Ghana, and others.

“It is important to state, that the PPA scandal goes beyond the person of Mr. A.B Adjei and his fraudulent TDL Company, who are now being used as a smokescreen to conceal a whole syndicate of organized crime in the high echelons of this government. We say so because contracts which have been awarded to TDL in the last two years emanated from, and in fact, were awarded by several Ministries and State Agencies such as the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Roads and Highways, Ministry of Works and Housing, Ministry of Special Development Initiatives, Ministry of Inner Cities and Zongo Development, COCOBOD, Ghana Water Company Limited, the Bank of Ghana, just to mention a few”, he revealed.

He reiterated that it is evident from the “Donkomi” expose’ that these State Institutions threw the national interest to the dogs and kept short-listing and awarding various juicy contracts to TDL under restricted tender even when they knew that the company was not executing the contracts.



To him, it is clear to the NDC that “behind this whole scandal is a long chain of MDAs and various state actors who either initiated, aided, facilitated and or abetted the corrupt activities of TDL”.

Sammy Gyamfi indicated that it is even more worrying for the fact that 13 of these contracts were awarded under restricted tendering to TDL in violation of Section 38 of the Public Procurement Law; adding that “these contracts were in turn fraudulently sold by TDL to other companies with the acquiescence and or approval of the awarding MDA’s and State Agencies”.

“...NDC is unsurprisingly scandalized by these chilling revelations contained in the “Donkomi-Contract for Sale” Expose’ which shows how pervasive and deep-seated corruption has become under the Akufo-Addo government. This scandal further reveals, how officials of the Akufo-Addo government have 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”, he slammed.
