Parliament postpones debate on Ayariga bribery report

Parliament has postponed to tomorrow the approval of the Joe Ghartey Investigative Committee report into allegations of bribery against some members of the Appointment’s Committee.

The house was expected to debate the report for approval on Thursday after the chair of the committee laid it before the house.

However the leadership of the house decided to postpone the debate to allow members to read and study the report.

It is not clear yet what the findings of the report are and the recommendations thereof, but members of the committee are emphatic nothing will be shelved under the carpet.

The Joe Ghartey committee was constituted after allegations by the Bawku Central MP Mahama Ayariga that the Chairman of the Appointment Committee Joe Osei Owusu had given Ȼ3,000 each to minority members of the committee to approve the Minister of Energy nominee at the time.
