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.
Beyond that, Mr. Boadu indicated that subcontracting is not a crime in this country.
"When did selling of contracts become a crime," he asked.
