He said the Public Procurement Law which had been abused by politicians and other public officers would be reviewed to exact tighter controls on the public procurement system.

“Sole-sourcing which is only supposed be done under very limited circumstances, has rather become the order of the day, ensuring that contracts are given to kin, cronies, and political bank-rollers. This will change under a PNC government”, Dr. Mahama said.

He added that he will decouple the Attorney-General’s department from the Ministry of Justice.

“I will decouple the Attorney-General from the Ministry of Justice and give the Prosecutor General powers to prosecute corrupt officials,” he stated.
