Deputy Communications Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, has indicated the minority in Parliament is dazed with the outcome of the motion filed to impeach President Mahama.The Speaker of Parliament Edward Doe Adjaho dismissed a motion by the Minority members of the House calling for the establishment of a bi-partisan committee to investigate President John Mahama for receiving a ford vehicle gift from a Burkinabe Contractor.
In his address to the House Thursday, the Speaker said he was forced to reject the motion because CHRAJ is the only mandated body to investigate matters of conflict of interest.
He said the Supreme Court has made a number of pronouncements regarding the exclusive jurisdiction in terms of chapter 24 of the constitution dealing with the code of conducts of public officers, including the President.
Commenting on the issue on his Facebook timeline, Kwakye Ofosu wrote:
“NPP MPs dazed as frivolous motion is thrown into the dustbin. What a ridiculous waste of time and hundreds of thousands of Ghana cedis!”
