Deputy Minister-designate for Agriculture, George Kwame Oduro has denied allegations that he was investigated by the Bureau of National Investigation.
He comment follows a call for his withdrawal by the Minority stating that the damning BNI report makes him ineligible to serve as a minister.
Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu who is leading his side to boycott the ongoing deputy ministerial vetting wants the name of George Oduro, who is expected to be vetted Thursday, April 6, 2017, removed from the list of nominees.
On the Floor of Parliament, he said “in respect of the nominees I am compelled to request that the president should consider withdrawing the nomination of one of the appointees named George Oduro because there is a damning BNI report on him.”
But when George Oduro appeared before the Appointment Committee of Parliament said it is mistaken identity.
He explained that, the letter served on him by the BNI had the name George Kwabena Oduro which is completely a different person.
George Oduro dared the Minority to provide the report by the BNI indicting him.
