Member of Parliament for Yapei Kusawgu Abdulai John Jinapor has said the Minority on the Finance Committee would demand due diligence in government’s move to reacquire its shares in the Aker Energy.

According to him the Minority, three years ago insisted that the country needs to acquire major shares in the oil block.

And on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 at a Finance Committee meeting, their side indicated that some additional works have to be done for further validation and proof of the figures that have been provided. “We stand committed and we would ensure that the right thing is done”.

The Minority has made it clear to government to go back and do all those works and bring it to them for them to do further scrutiny, and they want to take every case on item-by-item basis, “we are not doing an omnibus thing”.
