Social commentator and Controversial musician, Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as A Plus, has withdrawn his suit against the Attorney General and Kroll and Associates over the payment of $1million by the former Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo Marfo.
In 2019, A-plus asked Supreme Court to declare the $1million contract between Government and Kroll and Associates, illegal. The contract was signed on behalf of the government by Yaw Osafo Marfo, and was to take effect from February 2017.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) in a statement said that, the contract “was awarded to Kroll and Associates based on an expression of interest by the company without prior approval from PPA.”
“Based on the expression of interest, the contract was eventually awarded on sole sourcing basis without prior approval from the Public Procurement Authority (PPA) contrary to the dictates of the Public Procurement Act 2003 (Act 663) as amended,” the NDC stated.
Subsequently, the suit has been withdrawn by A-plus.
