John Boadu, the National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party, has said that the handover notes to be given to the incoming government are being doctored by some ministers of state.

This allegation follows claims by senior NPP executive Yaw Osafo Maafo, who stated the outgoing NDC government were signing last minute contracts, and organising final recruitment processes for some temporary employees.
Speaking in an Interview with Class FM, Mr Boadu said, "There are a lot of NDC people going round trying to auction cars and shredding documents. Per the Transition Act, ministers are expected to file their handing over notes 30 days before the general elections, but as we speak, majority of the ministries have not done so. These are supposed to be filed at the Administrator General’s office. So it is expected that the transition team will receive these filed handing over notes from the Administrator General."

He further noted the constitution states that 30 days prior to the general elections, all handover notes must be presented, and took a swipe at the NDC chairman to advise his ministers to stop doctoring the handover notes.
"What will be the reason why they will want to doctor the handing over notes that have been done? Per the law, the Chief of Staff is not supposed to have possession of the handing over notes; it should be the Administrator General. These are the issues that are critical as we speak. There are some district assemblies that are giving out contracts, there are others that are regularising employments.”
Currently, the NDC government is in transition as it hands over documents and updates on the state of the nation to the incoming NPP administration.
