Renowned economist and social commentator, Mr. Kusi Boafo has not only called on the Joe Ghartey Committee to make public progress on investigations into the bribery allegations that hit the vetting committee of parliament, but has also threatened to demonstrate against MPs who will be cited for an act of corruption in the report.
Speaking in an interview, Mr Kusi Boafo explained that, it is time the committee opened up on the matter.
“It’s important that some investigations must be conducted into the credible allegations of corruption and if people are found to have broken the law, they should be properly sanctioned. And let me clearly state that I will personally lead a demonstration against MPs who will be cited for acts of corruption when the report is released.” He stressed.
Mr. Boafo has however bemoaned the unnecessary delays that makes it impossible for Ghanaians to know the facts about such scandals, especially when it has to do with an organ of government.
“These unnecessary delays also create the impression that somebody is trying to cover up something or to make Ghanaians forget about the whole matter. And we have emphasized that this is not good for the country’s democracy and our fight against corruption”.He explained.
Parliament earlier this year was raged with a bribery scandal with the Minority members on the Appointment Committee accusing Energy Minister designate Boakye Agyarko of trying to bribe them.
