The NDC Member of Parliament for the North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has dismissed claims by the Chairman of the Appointments Committee that he (Ablakwa) confessed that a bribery allegation made against the leadership of the Appointments Committee and Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko was cooked up.
According to the former deputy Minister for Education, the claims by Mr Osei Owusu are “desperate, malicious and cancerous fabrication”.
“May it be known that the so-called confession attributed to me by Hon. Joe Osei-Owusu is nothing but a desperate, malicious and cancerous fabrication which would not be allowed to fester. The last time Hon. Osei-Owusu made this same allegation, he hanged it around the neck of Hon. Mahama Ayariga, I guess he had forgotten to be consistent when he appeared before the Special Committee today.
“Let no one doubt my resolve and the extent I am willing to go to vindicate the truth in this matter…Truth Stands,” he said in a Facebook post.
Mr Osei Owusu, appeared before the five-member ad-hoc committee formed by the Speaker of Parliament to probe the bribery allegation on Wednesday to give his side of the story.
