The Fourth Estate will on, Friday, December 17, 2021, release a documentary on scandalous Covid-19 contracts that was authorised by the Office of the President.
The contracts were awarded to sanitation companies to fumigate and disinfect markets, schools and other public places in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak.
The investigative documentary by The Fourth Estate’s Manasseh Azure Awuni reveals, with evidence, that there was no need for the contracts.
The documentary also reveals that even if there was any need for the contracts, there were existing contractual arrangements to do the work without awarding new contracts.
Besides, a number of metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies also had the capacity to do the work. However, they were asked to stop while hundreds of millions of cedis were paid to some companies with records of shady deals with the government to do the work.
The full documentary will be published on The Fourth Estate on Friday morning.
