CHRAJ orders ‘Corrupt’ former PPA boss to refund GHC 5m to state

Office of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has ordered Adjenim Boateng Adjei, the former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA), to return a sum of GHC5,697530 to the state within six months.

This yielded out of a petition filed by anti-graft body, Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII).

In its petition on October 4, 2019, GII urged CHRAJ to investigate officials of TDL for their involvement in corruption in the award of contracts to TDL and the “sale” of contracts unlawfully.

In the CHRAJ findings, Mr Boateng Adjei was said to have put himself in a conflict of interest position, abused his office on two occasions and failed to declare his assets as required by Chapter 24 of the 1992 Constitution.

Therefore, he has been ordered to ruturn the monies and also sanctioned not to take any public office for the next 10 years and ordered to declare his assets within three months in accordance with Article 28(1)(c) of the Constitution.

However, Adjenim Boateng Adjei sued CHRAJ, claiming that he has not been given a fair hearing and requesting the court to set aside its findings against him.
