- The Communications Minister has lashed out at the Assin Central MP for spewing false claims about her
- She has dared him to provide evidence of his ‘outlandish’ allegations
YEN.com.gh has gathered Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the Minister for Communications has dismissed the allegations of corruption made against her by the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong.
According to her, his accusations are nothing short of falsehood and dared him to provide evidence of his allegations.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Kennedy Agyapong claimed that the Communications Minister has pushed him out of the bid for the contract to print the identification cards under the National Identification Authority.
However, in a letter copied to the media, the minister has debunked these allegations stating the NIA is not an agency of the Communications Ministry, hence it directly reports to the presidency.
“I categorically refute the allegations of corruption made against me in relation to the award of the contract for the production of national identification cards by Mr. Kennedy Agyapong. They are patently false and I challenge him to come forward with evidence that corroborates his outlandish allegations,” she wrote.
The Minister added that even though she has not been contacted by the Criminal Investigations Department, she would welcome their probe into the matter and cooperate fully with them.
Meanwhile, Kennedy Agyapong has debunked reports that he has been summoned by the CID to answer on his allegations of corruption at the presidency.
He said he never accused Ursula Owusu-Ekuful or any of the two deputy Chiefs of Staff for any corrupt acts, thus he would not honor an invitation by the law agency should he be called in.
