Former Chief Justice of Ghana, Madam Sophia Akuffo, says she is very disappointed about wild allegation by Member of Parliament (MP) for Asawase, Muntaka Mubarak that a Supreme Court judge offered a bribe to a National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP to vote in favor of Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye during the election of Speaker for Ghana’s eighth Parliament.
The allegation by the MP, as per her, has defamed other innocent Judges of the Supreme Court who have gained positive recognition for themselves throughout the long term.
Speaking with Latif Idris, Madam Akuffo emphatically dismissed the allegation and depicted it as “propaganda”
The Asawase MP expressed that a Judge reached an NDC MP and offered an instigation should the MP vote for the New Patriotic Party’s Speaker chosen one, Prof Oquaye.
Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka revealed that this judge was advocating for the NPP and was prepared to offer the said female MP fuel for the four years of her parliamentary work.
As per the National Democratic Congress Chief Whip, the alleged judge called the MP has been recorded and the NDC caucus willl investigate into it.
Mr Muntaka has additionally guaranteed to help the Supreme Court with proof however he is yet to give any to back his cases.
Hence, the Chief Justice, accordingly, has guaranteed to help fish out the supposed Judge who endeavored to bribe the NDC MP.
The National Democratic Congress caucus are very eager and keen to bring the supposed Judge to book for trying to bribe an MP elect to manipulate the election of the speakership.
Meanwhile, all the brouhaha the choosing of the speakership and the majority group in Parliament has finally been settled after a long debate. The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Members of Parliament have been selected as the majority group in Parliament after the MP for Formena pledged to work with the NPP in Parliament.
