The Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Oquaye, has expressed anger at media houses in the country.
Speaking to the House on Friday, Prof. Oquaye warned media houses to desist from misreporting happenings in the House as the ‘appropriate sanctions’ would be applied should another incident happen.
The Speaker’s anger follows a report in the Herald Newspaper that asserted that the Minister for Communications, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful was ‘running away’ from accountability on the Kelni GVG contract.
Madam Ursula Owusu-Ekuful was on Wednesday given a 48-hour ultimatum, to appear before the House on Friday and account for how much revenue the country had made since contracting Kelni GVG as well as clear some controversies surrounding the contract.
The ultimatum was after the Minister failed to show up in Parliament on three consecutive times, to respond to a question filed by the Ningo-Prampram Member of Parliament, Samuel Nartey George on the controversial $89 million Kelni GVG deal.
