Mahama Ayariga had accused the then Energy Minister nominee Boakye Agyarko, Chairman of the Appointment Committee Joe Osei Owusu of bribing members of the minority with Ȼ3,000.00 to approve the former.

But an ad hoc committee set up by the Speaker of Parliament [Joe Ghartey committee] said the Ayariga only peddled falsehood and he couldn’t substantiate.

He was therefore found guilty of contempt of parliament and was instructed to apologise pending sanctions by the Speaker.
