The Bolgatanga Central Member of Parliament (MP), Isaac Adongo, has refuted media publications which sought to suggest that he was undermining his colleagues and fellow members of the Finance Committee of Parliament, in relation to the legislature’s probe into the collapse of seven local banks.
“The words being attributed to me in the publication are false and non-existent but are only mischievously crafted, concocted or invented to throw a wedge between myself and my colleagues,” he stressed in a statement.

Mr Adongo boycotted Parliament’s probe insisting that “the parliamentary probe is a rubber stamp process, it will deliver no value and I am not willing to be part of it.

“The documents that the committee members were given were statements from the banking sector and press releases by the Bank of Ghana (BoG), documents from audit firm, KPMG, only contain conditions and opinions on uniBank.

“The committee members do not know the terms of reference of the job that KPMG did, we don’t even know the full report of Boulders [Advisors], except an executive summary of Boulders’ work.

“The committee has not been provided with all the relevant documents and other materials to constitute an independent and credible work, hence my decision not to take part in rubber stamp meetings,” Mr Adongo maintained.

Nonetheless, other members of the Minority on the committee including Mr Kwetey, participated in all the meetings.

Mr Kwetey, after the first day of sitting, told journalists that Mr Adongo was on his own as far as his one-man boycott was concerned and did not represent the Minority with his actions and comments.

Mr Adongo noted that he knows Mr Kwetey “to be an investment banker with adequate insights and intellectual capacity to do what he does”.

He noted that he found it strange media publications would suggest he had cast a slur on Mr Kwetey when he had not done so.

“Those interested in breaking our front, my resolve to criticise, hold government accountable and responsible will fail pathetically as I stand resolute because subterfuge and calumny is not the way since I stand for truth, justice and the truth shall prevail ultimately,” he affirmed. –
