The Member of Parliament for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini, has revealed he will vote against the approval of Gifty Twum-Ampofo as Deputy Minister-designate for Education.
Mr Suhuyini said the decision stems from his dissatisfaction with the nominee’s handling of questions about a CDD Corruption Watch assessment of the last New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries.
The lawmaker, in a statement, revealed his decision has already been communicated to the Chairman of the Appointments Committee, Joseph Osei Owusu.
According to him, the nominee admitted to offering/bribing NPP delegates in the Abuakwa North Constituency with GH₵1,500 and a flat-screen television each during the party’s primaries.
However, she lacked “candor and what seems to be a conscience” when questioned at her vetting on Thursday, June 10, 2021.
