‘Ayariga et al made-up bribery allegation’ – Ken Agyepong

By on


New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has described as total embarrassment bribery allegation levelled against the Appointment Committee in Parliament by some NDC MPs.

He is of the firm conviction that those alleging have no basis and have only connived to destroy the Joseph Osei-Owusu led Vetting Committee.

“I have listened to them and I think it’s rather an embarrassment to the NDC members because if you pay critical attention, you will realise that Mahama Ayariga and his cohorts are just confused and framing things up,” he said.

The outspoken MP was speaking on Adom TV’s Morning Show “Badwam” Tuesday.

The Energy Minister was alleged to have bribed minority MPs on the committee with GHC3000 each. The supposed bribe was said to have been channelled through Chairman of the Committee, Joe Osei-Wusu, and Minority Chief Whip, Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka.

However, Mr Agyarko, Hon. Joe Osei-Wusu and Hon. Muntaka Mubarak have all denied the allegation before the five-member ad-hoc committee probing the damning bribery scandal.

But Mahama Ayariga claimed on Monday during the hearing that he was clear in his mind when Majority Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak disclosed to him the money was from Boakye Agyarko.

But Mr Kennedy Agyapong called for a strict investigation into the matter even after the committee has finished their work.

“Yes we have a committee investigating the matter, but the issue is very serious and needs to be investigated even if the committee is done with their investigation because we need to get to the bottom of this matter,” he stressed.
