Speaking on Citi FM, Rashid Pelpuo, the Member of Parliament for Wa Central said, “there must be some information derived out of it and a position that would have emerged upon which you would have then made such a powerful statement.

He further remarked, "for me I cannot say much because I’m not a member of the committee, I can only rely on what the witness is talking about and what emphasis he is putting across."

However, Muntaka Mubarak has denied the accusations that he was involved in the bribery scandal, stating, "I’m a Muslim and Ayariga is a Muslim. I’m swearing by the Allah that created him that I never gave Ayariga anything and I said it was from Osei-Owusu. Osei Owusu has never discussed any money issue with me. He has never given me any money to be given to Ayariga and I’ve never given Ayariga or anybody any money saying that it was coming from the Chairman."
