The Joe Ghartey Committee has asked Member of Parliament for Bawku Central to apologize to his colleagues in Parliament for leveling allegations against the Energy Minister, Emmanuel Boakye Agyarko and Chairman of the Parliamentary Appointments Committee (PAC), Joe Osei-Owusu.
The Joe Ghartey Committee was set up by the Speaker of Parliament, Mike Oquaye, to probe the allegations and make a report on the case to ascertain the truth in the issue.
Following the Committee's report, it has been established that the Bawku Central MP and a member of the PAC made unsubstantiated and unfounded allegations, and therefore is being directed to render an unqualified apology before Parliament.
Peace FM's Parliamentary Correspondent, Emmanuel Akorli filed the report on the news bulletin at 6 pm.
The Committee’s report, which was laid before Parliament yesterday [Wednesday] recommended that Mr. Ayariga be reprimanded by the Speaker of the House in accordance with Section 35 of the Parliament Act 1965 (Act 300).
The report also recommended that Mr. Ayariga renders an unqualified apology to the House, explaining that this would purge him of contempt.
