Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta disclosed on Tuesday 12th October 2021 that the infamous Agyapa deal which sparked massive controversy in Ghana few months ago will return to Parliament after recess.
The Finance Minister speaking with the press said; the “Attorney General has looked at the agreement” and that has accounted to the transaction returning to Parliament.
“The Attorney General has looked at it, we have had a few stakeholder meetings. I think the new board should be energized to review that and then go through the Parliamentary process. I am unequivocal that it is the way to go in terms of monetizing our minerals and finding a way to the level of debt that the country has,” he said after inaugurating the new board of the Ghana Minerals Income Investment Fund.
A corruption-risk assessment was conducted by the then Special Prosecutor, Martin Alamisi Amidu which has led to it being withdrawn from Parliament after being approved.
