The 5 member committee set up by the Speaker of Parliament of Ghana to look into the bribery allegations against some participants of the Appointments Committee cannot begin work.
This is due to the lack of the star witness, Mahama Ayariga. The Bawku Central (MP) is said to have travelled out of Ghana for an international task. To be exact, he is in the Nigeria capital of Abuja for an Ecowas parliamentary meeting.
Mr Ayariga and 2 members of the Appointments Committee, Alhassan Suhuyini and Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, had petitioned Speaker Mike Oquaye to inspect claims that Minister of Energy Boakye Kyeremanteng Agyarko had open bribe through Chairman of the Committee Joe Osei-Owusu prior to his selection.
After discussion with leadership, Speaker Oquaye named Joe Ghartey as chairman of the 5 member investigative committee.
