She added that even though the method is legal “it is an exception to the rule.”

Successive governments have had challenges with procurement processes. This has often led to accusations of corruption and counter-allegations between governments in power, the opposition parties and the general public.

But Ms Safo said when she is endorsed as Minister for Procurement, she will ensure the Nana Addo-led government has minimum challenges in procurement.
