Founder and Flag-bearer of Ghana Union Movement, GUM in the 2020 polls, Rev. Christian Kwabena Andrews known in private life as Osofo Kyiri Abosom says he will lead opposition parties in Ghana to sue Health Minister Kweku Agyeman-Manu and Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta over the rot in procurement of Sputnik V. Vaccine.
The Dormaa Central Member of Parliament Agyemanu-Manu committed a by lying on oath before ad-hoc Committee of Parliament tasked to probe the Sputnik V. Vaccine, jumped procurement processes, breached Financial Management Act and signed the deal without parliamentary approval.
According to Osofo Kyiri Abosom, the honourable action to settle the matter is for the Attorney General to drag the Health and Finance Ministers to court.
In sharp reaction to the matter on Thursday 12 August 2021 in Accra, the Preacher-Politician cum GUM Leader Osofo Kyiri Abosom said “I will rally opposition parties in this country to sue Agyeman-Manu and Ken Ofori-Atta if parliament and Attorney General does not take urgent steps to prosecute them”.
Meanwhile, Dubai Businessman Sheikh Ahmed Al Marktoum has refunded $2.400 million to Ghana, a money that was wrongly paid to him by Agyeman-Manu.
Majority Caucus of Parliament is of the view that the Health Minister should be left off the hook after Al Marktoum refunded the taxpayers’ cash to the national kitty.
Meanwhile, Agyeman-Manu who is at the center of the controversy, has already taken a two week leave despite intense pressure on him to resign whilst his Boss President Akufo-Addo laughs over calls for his dismissal.
