- John Boadu has defended the act whereby some contractors buy contracts
- He stated that it was not a crime to buy contracts
- According to him, the initial contractor could have been busy thus the decision to sell it to another
The General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, has defended the act whereby some contractors buy contracts.
According to him, "buying a contract from a contractor who cannot execute it isn't a crime."
Speaking in reference to the suspended Public Procurement Authority boss, AB Adjei, he said it may happen that the contractor might have other things doing, therefore, selling to other equally competent persons is in the right direction just as outright sale of contract is no crime.
"If the Public Procurement Authority boss, AB Adjei did not enter into competitive or restrictive tendering but used his influence as the PPA CEO to award the contract then he didn't act in good faith," he said.
John Boadu however indicated that subcontracting a procured contract was not a crime in this country.
"When did selling of contracts become a crime?," he asked.
