Meanwhile, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has "suspended from office, with immediate effect, the Chief Executive Officer of the Public Procurement Authority (PPA), Mr. A.B Adjei", owner of Talent Discovery Limited; the company allegedly caught in the documentary selling the contracts."

A statement signed by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, said "President Akufo-Addo has, subsequently, referred the allegations involving conflict of interest to the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), and those relating to potential acts of corruption to the Office of Special Prosecutor, for their prompt action."

"The President has also notified the Chairperson of the Board of the PPA to ensure that Mr AB Adjei hands over his office expeditiously to Mr. Frank Mante, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the PPA," the statement added.
