I’m Still Expecting More From You – Manasseh Tells Akufo-Addo After PPA Boss’ Sack

Published

on


Ace Investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has told President Akufo-Addo that he expects more from him after the sack of Adjenim Boateng Adjei, CEO of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA).

After an investigative piece by Manasseh titled “Contracts for Sale” exposed Mr Adjenim Boateng of engaging in conflict on interest, he was suspended by President Akufo-Addo.

In the said documentary, it was alleged that Mr Adjenim Boateng was using his office to sell contracts to the highest bidder.

A letter from the Presidency dated October 30, 2020, terminated the appointment of the PPA boss. It noted that the decision follows the submission of a report to the President by the Commissioner of Human Rights and Administrative Justice.

Speaking to Joy News, Manasseh noted that he was happy with the President’s quick reaction however he expects more from him.

It feels really good and it starts right from the president to CHRAJ. I commend the President highly for not sitting on this matter and not referring it to the suspicious sources that we know that when cases are referred to, we never get good results so I am happy that something concrete is being done about it,” he said.

He added, “….As far as I’m concerned, the President has done his work and has done it well. …We are getting some results, but we are still expecting more.”

NPP’s Best Score Is NDC’s Worst In Corruption Fight – Francis-Xavier Sosu

Published

on


Lawmaker for Madina Constituency, Francis-Xavier Sosu has admonished President Akufo-Addo and the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) for their failed fight against corruption for the past four years.

His comment comes after the President at a National Consultative Diaglogue on Small-Scale Mining indicated that he is determined to “enforce the laws on illegal mining no matter the subject, high or low,”; however, not based on hearsay.

But Mr Sosu in his critique, said “no one is saying that the President should convict persons based on hearsay or lack of evidence.” According to him, those words only “demonstrate the seemingly lack of interest by President Akufo Addo to crack the whip on corruption in his Administration.”

“Between 2017 and 2020, Ghana obtained an average score of 41.25 following scores of 40 for 2017, 41 for 2018, on the Corruption Perception Index as compared to an average score of 46 between 2013 and 2016. The 2020 report released by Transparency International saw the country score 43 points out of a possible 100, a two-point increase from 2019’s 41 points.

“This is compared to the 2016 CPI score of 43, 47 for 2015, 48 for 2014, 46 for 2013, and 45 for 2012. This shows that the NPP’s best score of 43 on the CPI is equivalent to the NDC’s worst score of 43,” the MP critiqued.

Cardi B Reacts To Akuapem Poloo’s Jail Sentence; Says It’s A Bit Harsh

Published

on


American rapper, Cardi B has reacted to the 90-day jail sentence of his socialite friend, Akuapem Poloo.

Responding to a social media post which requested her opinion on the jail term, Cardi B who became fond of Akuapem Poloo in 2019 after she twerked and rolled on the floor for her at the Kempenski hotel noted that the sentence was a bit harsh and could have rather been handed a community service.

“I’ve seen a lot of Americans do photoshoots like that. Even though it’s not my style, I don’t think she was going for sexual; more going the natural idea. I think jail is a bit harsh. Maybe social media probation or community service.”

Akuapem Poloo was on Wednesday April 14 convicted on her own plea by the Circuit Court in Accra after pleading guilty to three charges, thus the publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence, namely conduct that in any way undermines another person’s privacy or integrity and engaging in domestic violence that in any way detracts or is likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being.
