Former Member of Parliament for Kumbungu Ras Mubarak has admonished President Akufo-Addo to sack Health Minister Kwaku Agyemang-Manu if the latter will not do the dignify thing of resigning.
He stated that the President must have the courage to dismiss the Minister over the Sputnik V vaccine deal in the interest of Ghana.
But the former legislator said he would not be surprised if the Minister is not sacked because the NPP government is known for shielding its appointees from their corrupt actions.
Speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 875.5Fm, he noted he is disappointed that to date, the President has not relieved the man of his post.
He added that from what has happened so far, it sounds as if the President is aware of what has happened.
He indicated that the Minister perjured himself before the committee when he appeared before them.
He said the Minister lied before the committee and must have the consequences for that.
Ras Mubarak stressed anyone who appears before a committee and lies must be held to account.
He also slammed the NPP’s side in parliament for using the issues politically and justifying the action of the health minister.
Mr. Mubarak said the Minister has been in parliament for years and knows the rules hence should not have found himself in such a scandal.
He concluded that the call to have the Health Minister sacked is not only a call by the Minority but civil society groups also want him sacked.
