Bank Probe Walk-Out: Adongo on his own – Fifi Kwetey
Ketu South MP, Fifi Kwetey, has said the Minority Caucus and opposition MPs sitting on the Finance Committee do not support or associate themselves in any way whatsoever with fellow committee member Isaac Adongo’s lone walk-out on Wednesday, 5 September 2018 when the committee started its work of probing the collapse of seven local banks.
Mr. Adongo described the hearing as a “rubber stamp”, arguing that members had not been given the appropriate official documents they needed to do a good job.
However, Mr. Kwetey, who is the Ranking Member on the Finance committee, told the media after the first hearing that Mr. Adongo’s wlak-out “is his individual position. He does not represent the Minority.”
Mr Kwetey went on to say that: “The views he [Mr. Adongo] expressed earlier regarding returning assets to owners of the bank is his individual position as well.
“He represents none of us on the Finance committee and I can say by extension that he doesn’t represent the Minority as well.”
