Sputnik V. Procurement: ‘Reap’ what you’ve ‘planted’- Charlotte Osei tackles Akufo-Addo

Former Chairperson of Electoral Commission has subtly reminded President Akufo-Addo to remain firm and fair in the enforcement of Ghana’s procurement laws.

According to her, the rule of law must be applied to all and sundry not according to the whims and caprices of any president, individual or group of individuals.

The latest comment by Mrs. Charlotte Osei follows President Akufo-Addo’s refusal to fire Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman-Manu despite public outcry, anger after breaching procurement laws, Financial Management Act and committing perjury by lying on oath before parliament’s ad-hoc committee tasked to probe Sputnik V. Vaccine deal.

Madam Charlotte Osei holds the view that the time has come for the president to prove to the public that he is good at applying procurement laws after the the rot in Sputnik V. procurement.

In what appears to be her strong message to President Akufo-Addo to stamp his authority to be fair and firm in the application of procurement laws to show Agyemnu-Manu the exit for breaches, Mrs. Charlotte Osei who was booted out of the EC for procurement breaches, said “Rule of law is the cardinal principle of democracy. It presupposes that all persons must be treated equally irrespective of your status or political affiliation.. so rule of law must apply to all fairly. This is equal to the Biblical dictum that you reap what you sow, you’ve planted it, so you harvest what you planted”.

Charlotte Osei noted that “If you don’t apply the law fairly, people will lose confidence in state institutions and those institutions will soon lose legitimacy and that has security implications for the future”.
