Chairman of the Committee set up to investigate the bribery allegations in Parliament, Joe Ghartey
The Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, is to be invited by the Committee set up to investigate the bribery allegations in Parliament.
This follows a letter he wrote to the committee following comments by the Chairman of the Appointments Committee, Joe Osei Wusu which he felt required him to testify.
Reacting to the letter at a rather short sitting Friday MP for Yilo Krobo and Member of the Committee Magnus Amoatey, said his request has been granted.
Meanwhile, Chairman of the Committee set up to investigate the bribery allegations in Parliament, Joe Ghartey says at their last sitting, three persons in the name of MP for Bawku central, Mahama Ayariga, MP for Asawase Muntaka Mubarak and Minister for Energy Boakye Agyarko were invited to testify at the committee's hearing.
However, proceedings have been halted till Monday as another member of the House, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, who is MP for North Tongu has expressed his intension to appear before the committee.
He added that all members of the House who wish to appear before the Committee should not hesitate to alert the clerk of the house.
Mr Joe Ghartey urged all the witnesses to be on standby as they will be called to testify on Monday.
