Ghana's Parliament.


Members of the Minority in Parliament on Mines and Energy Committee say they still stand by their decision to abstain from the committee’s work on the Ameri contract.

Last month, the Minority MPs said the house had no basis looking into a legal contract and so decided to abstain.

The committee is scheduled to meet today on the issue but ranking member on the committee, Adam Mutawakilu says his side still stand by their decision.

The boycott is due to the fact that the motion to withdraw the 2015 AMERI deal, was not debated in Parliament before being forwarded to the Mines and Energy committee.
