Intelligence gathered by NET2 TV indicates that a sitting member of Parliament has allegedly duped a foreigner to a tune of thousands of US dollars. Host of NET2 TV’s “The Seat” show, Kwaku Annan made the revelation last night, Wednesday 14th April, 2021.
Kwaku Annan said the Member of Parliament in question, has duped several people in the past. He added that the MP financed his political campaign in the run up to the 2020 elections with proceeds from his gold scam business.
According the outspoken journalist, the said MP is ably assisted by a lawyer.
He said, “we have videos and pictures of him being stabbed at the back with a knife due his involvement in gold scam in the past. He lied to the foreigner that he would he help get some gold but bolted away the money”.
Kwaku Annan decided to keep the MP’s name secret upon advice from his producer. However, he threatened to give his (the MP) name to the Speaker of Parliament, Right Honourable Alban Babgin if he fails to refund the foreigner’s money by Monday.
He then gave Eastern Region as the Member of Parliament’s home Region without mentioning the specific constituency he serves.
Reacting to his disturbing development, the Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Kwame Baffoe popularly known as Abronye D.C.E said, a crime is crime and the MP should be arrested and arraigned before court of competent jurisdiction to assertain the veracity of the matter.
“Why should criminals like this be the ones making laws for this country and Ghanaians”, Abronye quizzed.
