Cash For Seat Committee Lays It’s Report Before Parliament

The Ad hoc committee tasked by parliament to investigate the infamous cash-for-seat saga has laid before the House its findings today but the minority members of the committee have also issued their own report.

The report issued by the two-member Minority side of the five-member committee concludes that the Ministry of Trade and Industry erred in charging expatriate businessmen between $25,000 and $100,000 to sit by President Nana Akufo-Addo at an awards event late las year.

According to their report there is evidence on record to the effect that in its initial conception, the event had the President of the Republic as the centre of attraction and that payment for seats bore a direct relationship to the distance of the payer’s seat from the presidential high table.

It further states the evidence shows clearly that Mr. Ashim Morton forged documents in a desperate attempt to cover up this blatant fact.

The report which was authored by James Klutse Avedzi and Dr Dominic Akuritinga Ayine, the two Minority members on the committee.

Spokesperson for the committee, Yaw Buabeng Asamoah however says he is unaware of the report by the two minority members of the committee.
