Yaw Osafo Marfo said the government is increasingly facing setbacks following the inappropriate nature of the NDC's last-minute contracts.
He said the government is increasingly facing setbacks following the inappropriate nature of the contracts.
He explained that the review had become necessary because the government did not want the country to be saddled with judgement debts.
"We are taking these agreements now, one by one, under the able leadership of the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice.
"One of the problems we are facing today as a new government is that many contracts were signed in the last 14 days of the Mahama administration," Yaw Osafo Marfo said.
Speaking at an Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) programme on the implementation of the Presidential Transition Act, he said "The Americans have a term, the lame-duck president. That term is not there for nothing. You are elected…you’re all outgoing presidents, but your functions are literally taken away from you in respect of many important issues. You are waiting for a new incoming administration and you don’t do anything that is significant.
"The day-to-day running of the country can go ahead but you don’t do anything that is pronouncedly significant and I think we have to be very clear in the law about what can be done and what cannot be done," he added.

"We have quite a lot we are looking at. We have a very powerful Transition Act with dos and don’ts. There should be transparency about the law as we move from one administration to the other. After all, many countries go through transitions and they do so quietly and diligently. I don’t see why we should bother ourselves with all kinds of problems," he said.
