Minority Chief Whip and National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Asawase, Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak, has stated under oath that he never took any money from the Chairman of the Appointments Committee of Parliament, Joe Osei-Owusu, to be given to some minority members as bribe.

Appearing before the five-member ad-hoc committee investigating the allegation today [Monday], February 20, the MP reiterated his position that he also never directly gave any money to Mahama Ayariga and other minority MPs, to convince them to approve the nomination of Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko.

“I have never been given any money from the Chairman Joe Osei-Owusu to be given to anybody telling that person that the Chairman has given me this money to give”.
