Bribery scandal: 'The truth is on our side' – Ablakwa
One of the accusers in the case of the alleged
bribery scandal against Parliament’s Appointments
Committee, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says they are
ready for Wednesday’s sitting.

The five-member investigative ad-hoc committee
formed by Parliament to investigate the bribery
scandal is set to commence public hearing from
Wednesday, February 15, 2017.

The committee was set up on January 31 by the
Speaker, Professor Mike Oquaye to investigate the
alleged attempted bribery by the Energy Minister,
Boakye Agyarko, after it was revealed by the
Member Parliament for the Bawku Central, Mahama
Ayariga that he tried to induce the Minority on
the Appointments Committee with GHc 3,000 each to
approve his nomination.

Even though many, including Civil Society
Organizations, have questioned the decision by
Parliament to investigate itself, the Joe Ghartey
committee is set to hear the case on Wednesday.

Speaking on the Gold Power Drive on Radio Gold
Tuesday, the North Tongu legislator said he still
stands by the bribery allegations.

“We are so ready. When the truth is on your side
you don’t need any preparation. We have been
waiting for this day to come and we are not
changing our position. Hon. Agyarko attempted
bribing us. I was given an envelope which
contained money and our leader asked us to return
the money which we did. That is the truth. Nothing
but the truth,” he said.

The committee is to investigate whether or not the
Chairman of the Committee, Joseph Osei-Owusu, had
taken money from Mr Boakye Agyarko and given it to
the Minority Chief Whip, Alhaji Mohammed
Muntaka-Mubarak for further disbursement to
Minority Members on the committee as bribe.

The MPs expected to appear before the committee
includes MP for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga,
Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, North Tongu and Tamale
North MP Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini.
