Hon. Isaac Adongo, mp for Bolga Central has rubbished news making rounds on various social media platforms purported to have emanated from his outfit as his reaction to comments made by colleague Member of Parliament, Hon. Fiifi Kwartey.
News surfaced yesterday that the Hon. Member of Parliament for Bolga Central staged a walk out as a protest against how the committee set up to probe into banking crises are handling issues.
But according to him, he uttered no such words against Fiifi Kwartey , and what is making round on social media platforms is a creation by some individuals who are motivated by malice and propaganda in their bid to push a wedge between him and his colleague members of Parliament.
Below is the full statement
My attention has been drawn to a publication captioned as above and attributed to Kuv FM.
Let me state first and foremost that I have not granted any interviews to Luv FM since I walked out of the parliamentary committee sitting on the banking crisis. Again, it is worth mentioning that, in all my media engagements, I’ve refrained from mentioning the names of my colleagues.
The words being attributed to me in the aforementioned publication are therefore false and none existent but were only mischievously crafted, concocted or invented to throw a wedge inbetween myself and my colleagues.
I can understand where this bogus publication is coming from and the motive behind it. The content says it all.
I say here and again that I know Hon Fiifi Kwetey to be an investment banker with adequate insights and intellectual capacity to do what he does.
I wish to reemphasize my point for the abundance of clarity and the avoidance of doubt:
1. I took a personal decision upon reviewing the documents before me and came to the conclusion that I was not equipped to do the job that I needed to.
2. I firmly believe that government is deliberately withholding facts that will otherwise expose the real factors beneath the banking crisis and their subsequent expropriation.
3. A document purported to be the KPMG report was on the whassap platform of the finance committee. It is the only document shared on the platform but I find that to be unusual and at variance with my experience in Parliament. Hon. Benjamin Kpodo was right in making that allusion of a shared document.
4. I subsequently excused myself from the meeting.
My colleagues on the minority side are doing their best under the circumstances.
Fiifi Kwetey made a statement of fact which is consistent with my position. Viz, I did not act on behalf the minority caucus on the committee, neither did I purport to have acted on their behalf. This was a personal decision that I took.
Nevertheless, I have enormous respect for Hon Fiifi Kwetey and the rest of my colleagues on the committee as they offer a lot of inspiration and guidance to me. I will continue to work with them as a team in the interest of Ghana and in the collective interest of the great NDC
Those interested in breaking our front and particularly, my resolve to criticize and hold government accountable and responsible will fail pathetically as I stand resolute. Subterfuge and calumny is not the way.
I stand for truth and justice and the truth shall prevail ultimately
