Monday’s Vetting of Ministers-designate in Parliament was characterized by some “drama” as Chairman of the Appointments Committee engaged in a heated back-and-forth argument with a colleague member of the committee.
Chairman of the committee, Joseph Osei Owusu prevented the Tamale North MP, Suhuyini Tamale North MP from questioning Energy Minister-designate Boakye Agyarko on issues regarding a money laundering scandal at the Bank of Newyork during his stay there as a worker.
Mr. Suhuyini was again interrupted when he tried to explain the rationale behind the question after Mr. Agyarko quizzed what the linkage was since the scandal in question had nothing to do with neither his bank branch nor his name.
The house was thrown in a frenzy momentarily with the back-and-forth with the Vice-Chairperson; Adwoa Sarfo who was clearly unhappy with the turn of events describing Mr. Suhuyini’s conduct as “rude”.
Order was however restored after the Chairman overruled his comments and motioned for the team to move on to questions from other members.
