Mike Oquaye SpeakerRt. Honourable Aaron Mike Oquaye, Speaker of Parliament

The Speaker of Parliament, Mike Aaron Oquaye has set up a five-member committee adhoc to investigate claims expatriates paid as high as US$100,000 to sit close to President Akufo-Addo at an event.

This follows a heated and partisan debate that greeted a motion by over 80 minority Members of Parliament who demanded the parliamentary probe.

Members of Parliament were therefore summoned to sit on the motion on Friday, where the decision to investigate the action by the Trade and Industry Ministry was taken.
