Aduboahene took advantage of the company’s sanitation contract it had in 254 districts across the country to defraud several contractors, especially in the Brong Ahafo and Eastern regions.
Mr. Aduboahene is said to have been going about awarding contracts to the unsuspecting contractors in the name of the company.
