Tamale Central Member of Parliament is accusing Minority Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak of not being candid in the recent bribery scandal that has left the Minority side of Parliament even more divided.
Inusah Fuseini told joy fm, Monday, he suspects the Minority Chief Whip is rather covering up the rot in the house to protect what is left of Parliament’s integrity.
His comments on Monday is the new twist to a fluid bribery scandal that has hit the second arm of government just days after its personnel were sworn into office.
The scandal broke out last Friday and was triggered by Bawku Central Member of Parliament, Mahama Ayariga who claimed the Minority MPs on the Appointment Committee of Parliament had been bribed with an amount of GHȻ3,000.00.
Tamale Central MP Inusah Fuseini who is not on the Appointments Committee but on the side of the Minority said he has spoken to the key actors in the scandal and can say on authority that the Minority Chief Whip is “not being candid” to the matter.
“When I spoke to him, I realized he is worried. He feels that the integrity of Parliament is more important than uncovering the rot.”
“He places the integrity of Parliament higher and would rather cover up,” Fuseini stated.
He wondered why Muntaka Mubarak would swear by Allah on the matter and suggested it was not necessary.
