Some NDC Members of Parliament on the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) have explained that they boycotted Wednesday’s sitting because the Chairman is trying to run a ‘one man’ show.

According to them, the inability to provide them with transcripts requested for and the chairman’s attitude could make the final report of PAC bias.

The NDC MPs did not join their colleagues from the minority side, when they could not access transcripts and documents on previous proceedings involving the former Attorney General, Betty Mould-Iddrisu.

They had requested for such documents and appealed to the chairman to postpone sitting after the supplementary budget was read in Parliament. MP for Salaga Constituency, Ibrahim Dey Abubakari in an interview with XYZ News, said they will return to continue with the committee’s sittings when their requests are granted.

He added that the Chairman, Albert Kan-Dapaah must also change his attitude and cooperate with members of the committee to make their work transparent.

“A committee work is not a one man show and if the chairman is trying to have a one show, fine, then let him go ahead.

“This attitude can make the report bias. We want to maintain the integrity and the dignity of the committee. Once the public is divided with the PAC then you can imagine that the report will also be divided”.
