The Minority NDC MPs are daring the Philip Addison Committee to disclose their source of funding into the Dubai trip they made in relation to their probe into the AMERI deal.

According to them, they have evidence that the 17-member Committee was allegedly sponsored by AMERI Energy.

Included in the said sponsorship, the NDC MPs allege, are Hotel accommodation; air fare, food among others.

Addressing a press conference in Accra, Monday, to set the records straight over the AMERI deal, Dr. Kwabena Donkor under whose care as Minister for Power, the deal was brokered, questioned the credibility of the Committee’s findings.

He expressed worry over why the Committee allowed itself to be sponsored by the very principal act (AMERI ENERGY) they were tasked to probe.

The MP for Pru, commenting further articulated doubt over the credibility of the report, arguing that the Members of the Committee might have been compromised through the alleged sponsorship of their trip to Dubai for the probing.

He said if the Committee were truly committed to doing a very good job for their pay masters, they would have invited him and or the former Deputy Minister for Power to provide relevant information that would help their work.
