The Member of Parliament for Adenta constituency, Hon. Kojo Adu- Asare says the antagonistic approach by the Minority members of the Public Accounts Committee(PAC) against the Attorney General, Dr. Benjamin Kumbuor may not yield the desired findings from the ongoing investigation into the Construction Pioneers’ settlement debt.
According to him, the Minority members have already preconceived minds on the issue and that was clearly reflected in their conduct during the appearance of the AG before the committee last week.
The Government of Ghana paid a whooping Ninety Four million Euros to CP as settlement debt for certain roads the company constructed several years ago.
Speaking on Joy Fm’s News File on Saturday, Hon. Adu Asare criticized the minority leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu for ‘poisoning’ the atmosphere relating to the issues through a press conference he addressed recently, when the AG had not had his day before the PAC.
He said if the mibnority members on the committee should continue with their posture, the AG will be forced to be cagey and will not relieve relevant information about the issue which will be at the detriment of Ghana.
“The Minority see this as an opportunity to nail the NDC government and this is evident in the set of questions they are asking; let us see the interest of Ghana”, Hon Adu Asare said.
