Former Ejisu MP dragged to Special Prosecutor for paying Ghc5,000 to each 600 delegates
A group calling itself Ghana Watch Alliance has petitioned the Office of the Special Prosecutor to investigate bribery comments made by the former Member of Parliament (MP) for Ejisu, Kwabena Owusu Aduomi.
In the video that has caught the attention of the group, Mr. Owusu Aduomi who is a former Deputy Minister of Roads and Highways is heard in an interview on Oyerepa television in Kumasi, saying that he paid GHS5,000 to each of the 600 delegates who voted in the past NPP parliamentary primaries in the Ejisu constituency.
Shocked by this revelation, the Ghana Watch Alliance is demanding that the Special Prosecutor immediately take up the matter and look into it.
“We are writing to your august office to draw your attention to this personal bribery announcement made by the former Deputy Minister.
“It is also good to emphasis that He paid these huge sums of money to the NPP Delegates whiles he was a Deputy Minister of state in the first term of President Nana Addo’s Government,” part of the petition signed by Kwame Atuah Patrick who is President of Ghana Watch Alliance reads.
It added that, “We as a group believes that for a former Deputy Minister of State to publicly sit on a National television to voice out his personal bribery payments in the past in such a high esteem cannot be overlooked in our quest to fight corruption in this country.”
