Speaker to rule on Parliament bribery scandal today

S

peaker of Parliament Prof. Mike Ocquaye, will deliver his final ruling on the Appointments Committee bribery scandal, Monday.

The ruling was expected last Friday, however, before the House adjourned sitting around 10:40 pm, Second Deputy Speaker, Alban Bagbin, revealed the Speaker has indicated his intention to deliver the ruling on Monday instead.

Mr. Ayariga is said to have drafted an apology speech which he is expected to deliver before the Speaker’s ruling.

Ayariga had attempted an apology last week after he was found guilty of contempt of Parliament by an ad hoc committee constituted to investigate allegations of corruption he made against a Minister and two MPs.

He had accused the Minority Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak of collecting bribe money from the Chairman of the Appointment Committee of Parliament Joe Osei Owusu out of which he distributed Ȼ3,000 each to Minority members on the committee.

He said they collected the monies initially thinking it was a sitting allowance but returned it after they learnt it was a bribe money paid on behalf of Boakye Agyarko to bribe them to approve the Energy Minister nominee at the time.
