It has emerged that a Minister of State has sworn to ensure the re-negotiated Ameri deal does not sail through parliament, Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong has alleged.
According to Mr Agyapong, the supposed Minister met with a group of journalists at a hotel in Accra to plot towards “disgracing Boakye Agyarko”.
“A Minister in this government said he will make sure this deal does not go through just to destroy Boakye Agyarko. Why are we doing this to ourselves”, he stated on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Monday.
