    REVEALED: PPA Boss was star witness in Charlotte Osei’s trial – A Plus

    It has emerged that the former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA), Adjenim Boateng Adjei played a major role in the removal of Charlotte Osei as Ghana’s Electoral Commissioner (EC).

    According to controversial musician cum politician, Mr Adjei was the star witness in the trail of Mrs Osei who was accused of various procurement breaches.

    Mrs. Osei was accused of a number of infractions, among them the procurement of a law firm for the EC. She was eventually sacked. The first woman to be appointed EC Chair after the longest serving and most respected Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Djan had left office, she presided over the 2016 general elections.

    The EC had procured the services of the law firm, Sory@Law. But it didn’t appear to have followed proper procedures to secure the services of the firm.

    A five-member committee was then set up to investigate her. The committee chaired by Supreme Court Judge, Justice Anthony Alfred Benin, included Justice Samuel K. Marful-Sau and Justice Agnes Dordzie, both of them Justices of the Appeals Court. The other members were, Mr. Welbeck Abra-Appiah, a banker and Ms Rose Karikari-Anang a former Executive Secretary of the Ghana Employers Association.

    In his testimony to the Committee, Adjei said his office didn’t have records of the EC’s appointment of Sory@Law as its lawyers.

    The Committee found that there was no formal letter from the EC appointing the law firm, but it found letters from the firm requesting for payment for services it had rendered to the Commission.

    A Plus in a post sighted by GhanaNewsPage.Com also accused the former PPA of being the brain behind the removal accusing him of being corrupt.

    He therefore wondered why the government of President, Nana Akufo-Addo, has failed to prosecute him.
