SP must investigate Juaben election brouhaha thoroughly- Minister
A former Local Government Minister under the John Agyekum Kuffour’s time has endorsed the investigation commenced by the office of the special prosecutor to the allegations of corruption and corruption related offences into the recent Juaben MCE nominee’s election.
The election which has taken a center stage in discussion witnessed numerous scuffles between the supporters of the disappointed nominee and some members purported to be against the nominee.
After the election, the nominee, Mr. Alex Sarfo Kantanka a.k.a Chairman Aluta pulled 10 out of the total 26 votes casted.
He was rejected by the assembly members for the second time which means that, the President would have to nominate different person for the assembly.
A video which went viral on social media after the election saw the embattled MCE nominee attacking some assembly members to refund his monies paid them to endorse his candidature but failed to commit to it.
This the SP summoned him to commence investigation into it as it goes against the Constitution of the country.
Some stakeholders believe this is not a case that the SP should waste time on but reacting to it on a Kumasi based giant radio, Silver FM, a Local Government Minister who doubles as the former Member of Parliament for Sunyani West, Hon. Kojo Adjei Darko is of the firm believe that, the move by the SP is commendable.
He said there is no minor in bribe hence the need to investigate the whole brouhaha as the giver and the taker are all offended in the face of the law.
Asked whether the money paid to the members were meant for TnT, he said “when did MCE nominee’s started paying TnT for assembly members during election”, he also questioned the host of the morning show, Nana Ampratwum.
