A Communication member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kojo Danquah says the NPP is a “family and friends” government.

Mr. Danquah expressed disappointment in President Akufo-Addo for what he termed as a lost fight against corruption, on the part of his government.

The NDC Communicator made this comment in relation to the recent undercover report by Manasseh Azure which exposed alleged corrupt activities in the Public Procurement Authority under the watch of Mr. Adjenim Boateng Adjei, CEO of the Authority.

Investigative journalist, Mannaseh Azure, in his “Contract For Sale” exposé disclosed that the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of PPA was involved in the sale of government contracts.

The documentary, which aired on Joy TV revealed that the PPA boss formed a company after he was appointed in 2017 and awarded restrictive tendering contracts to the company.

Following the report, President Akufo-Addo has asked the PPA Boss to step aside for further investigations.

But Kojo Danquah speaking on UTV Late News indicated that the PPA scandal is a symptom of the family and friends affairs of the Akufo-Addo regime.

“Corruption in the current Akufo-Addo’s administration is too high that even Martin Amidu has threatened to resign his post because they are operating as family and friends government.

“NPP used corruption as campaign message against NDC in 2016 election but the question is have them been able to do anything yet to fight against…,” he quizzed.
