“I do not have much difficulty in the construction of the cathedral but what I do have is procurement breaches in granting single source approval to the consultant in this regard and so basically that is my only challenge.”

“The office of the President wrote a letter to the Public Procurement Authority seeking approval under the single-source method,” Mr. Adjaye says.

As stated by David Adjaye, requirements of sole sourcing states that, unless it’s urgent or an emergency situation, sole sourcing must not be a priority.

“The precondition under which they wrote the letter was under 72 {5} B which states that you can only do that under emergency situations, but I am wondering what is urgent about this contract that we have to go by single-source,” Mr. Adjaye stresses on his statement.
