Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema East, Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover, is appealing to the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) National Chairman, Mr Freddie Blay to accept the invitation by the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).
CHRAJ is investigating allegations of corruption against Mr Blay in the purchase of 275 buses for the governing party.
But, Mr Blay has refuted claims that the buses were procured to influence delegates ahead of the NPP’s Conference that took place in the Eastern regional capital, Koforidua.
CHRAJ in investigating the matter wrote to Mr Blay two months ago to request a response to the petition.
CHRAJ says neither Mr Blay nor his lawyers have responded to their request compelling it to file an application seeking to commit the politician for contempt.
But, speaking on the matter, Mr Titus-Glover, speaking on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem, Monday said Chairman Blay has no excuse to deny CHRAJ’s invitation because he would only be interrogated.
“Chairman Freddie Blay must go and say his part of the story. We must show respect to the institutions of the land. And so he has no excuse. If he has any issue against ex-president Mahama, he should just go and make his case at CHRAJ so that John Mahama can also be invited and not use him (Mahama) as an excuse,” he stated.
