The committee set up to investigate into allegations of corruption leveled against Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko will present it’s report to Parliament today.
The report is expected to tell if indeed the Energy Minister attempted to bribe members of the Appointment Committee to facilitate his approval.
Bawku Central MP, Mahama Ayariga alleged on radio that he received an amount of money from the minority chief whip, Muntaka Mubarak which he claimed came from first deputy minister and chairman of the Appointments Committee, Joe Osei-Owusu to be given on behalf of Mr Boakye Agyarko.
The two have all denied ever given money to Mahama Ayariga or any of the minority members of the Committee,.
Joe Osei-Owusu subsequently complained to the Speaker of Parliament, Prof Mike Ocquaye. Ayariga and Tamale Central MP, Alhassan Suhuyini also petitioned the Speaker leading to the setting up of the Committee.
The Committee during open sittings which were aired on television and on radio, took evidences from the persons involved.
The delay in the presentation of its report led to incessant calls by members of the public.
But the acting communication director in Parliament, Kate Addo assured that the report will be laid before the house today.
