- An MP, Adams Mutawakil, has revealed that he was offered a bribe of $200,000 to support the AMERI deal
- He went on to say that his stance on the deal has made him a thorn in the flesh of the government
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Damongo, Hon Adams Mutawakil, has shed light on how some people attempted to bribe him with an amount of $200,000.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, Hon. Mutawakil, also known as Hon. Garlus, stated that the bribe was an attempt to influence his position on the infamous AMERI deal.
Hon. Garlus is also a ranking member of the Mines and Energy Committee of Parliament.
Taking into consideration his stance on the controversial deal, he has been considered a thorn in the flesh of the government.
Speaking on a local radio station, Hon. Garlus revealed that his constant attacks on the deal resulted in the attempt to get him to support it.
The AMERI deal, which became a matter of hot political debates, was rejected by Parliament, even after being approved by the presidency.
It reportedly led to the dismissal of the then Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko, soon after President Akufo-Addo has stated that he was misled with respect to the details.
