Majority leader, Kyei-Mensah Bonsu has insisted that Kofi Bosompem Osafo-Maafo, son of Senior Minister is also a Ghanaian a deserves the role he’s been given in the Agyapa deal.
Speaking on TV3’s the New Day, the legislator noted that once nothing untoward has been attributed with the person in question, then he fully deserves the job.
“People said that Osafo Maafo’s son is involved and the law firm of Gabby Otchere Darko, I don’t want to go into that. The fact is, are those people Ghanaians? If they are Ghanaians and nothing untoward has happened I don’t think anybody [can questioned it]”, he said.
He added, “Former President Mahama, for instance, was giving a significant proportion of Nyinahin Bauxite to his brother Ibrahim. Was that wrong? Ibrahim is a Ghanaian. To the extent that we had done good diligence to enable us know the worth of the bauxite and for the state to have had something reasonable from Ibrahim and that maybe the deal had come to parliament for ratification.”
