Muntaka reveals why he stopped meeting with Akufo-Addo nominees

Member of Parliament for Asawase constituency, Hon. Mohammed Muntaka has disclosed that a lot of Akufo-Addo nominee wanted to meet the Minority leadership prior to their vetting but they were declined because sympathizers of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) would have misinterpreted it.

According to Hon. Muntaka, the nominees were prevented from meeting the Minority leadership because he wanted to avoid a situation where NDC will accuse him of being compromised to approve a nominee.

“As nominees, many of them did everything under the sun to even meet me and some of us but we refused. I mean you are coming for vetting, why do you want to come and see me…in Ghana if you are appearing before the Appointments Committee and I’m seen with you having a normal chat, some people can take pictures and give it some meaning,” he said on Joy News.

Meanwhile, members of the opposition NDC have accused the minority caucus in Parliament of approving some of President Akufo-Addo’s minister-nominees. Many claim the NDC MPs have been bribed to approve them.
