Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu is a free man after Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Andrew Asiamah Amoako, on Friday, August 6 declined to take a decision on his fate after the nine-member bi-partisan committee tasked to probe the procurement of overpriced Sputnik V vaccines laid its report on the floor of Parliament.
According to a report by 3news, the Minority had called for a vote of no confidence in the Minister, Kwaku Agyeman Manu, who was in the House. He represents Dormaa Central Constituency.
This comes after the minister during public sitting of the investigative committee admitted that he acted on his own accord in procuring Covid-19 vaccines by contracting the Emirati middleman for the supply of the vaccines, which were at a unit cost of $19 instead of the factory price of $10.
However, after several back and forth in Parliament on the minister’s fate, the sit-in Speaker, after failure of the two sides to reach a consensus, adjourned sitting sine die.
