The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram Samuel Nartey George has fired salvos back at the Communications Minister describing her as arrogant.
Reacting to the Minister’s description of him as a liar over the alleged purchase of Airtel Tigo at $25 million, he said no amount of arrogance will prevent the Minister from accountability.
The Minister in a response to claims by the MP over the purchasing of the telecommunication company said:”Some people find it very difficult to believe we can negotiate good deals for government. I signed the AirtelTigo contract. We acquired it for just a dollar.
Someone, an MP, says he heard me say we paid $25 million. A barefaced lie…. blatant untruth.
Please ask Sam George where he heard that. Then Sit back and listen to long, English grammar and drama…. just keep your eyes on the ball. How much did we pay to acquire the company? 1 dollar, Simple!!”
But the MP fired back saying: ”Someone tell our Minister for Communications that grand posturing and arrogant clap backs would not stop us on the Parliamentary Committee of Communications and the good people of Ghana from demanding accountability from her.
What does she take us for? That she bought AirtelTigo for $1? How much is the eyebrow pencil she uses to draw her eyebrows and she thinks she can insult our intelligence?
Madam, after basking in the fake fans of your social media followers, prepare to appear before the Committee and give us details of the transactions. We would not allow the already burdened taxpayers of our country to be saddled with poorly thought out decisions that impose more debt or hardship on us.
Our eyes are fixed on the ball and I urge you to do same. No long talk.”
