Health Minister, Kwaku Agyeman Manu

The minority in parliament is demanding revocation of the appointment of health minister Kwaku Agyeman-Manu over breaches in procurement of Sputnik V vaccines through middlemen.

A report from parliament’s Ad hoc committee investigating the matter indicted the health minister of failing to seek parliamentary approval among others.

But presentation of the report generated chaos when the minority Chief whip Muntaka Mubarak sought to amend the report demanding the removal of the health minister.

The back and forth resulted in chaotic scenes compelling the second deputy speaker who was presiding to adjourn proceedings sine dine.

In an interview with Journalists, majority leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu argued the amendment proposal from the minority was ill-timed.

Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu asked the health minister to resign or be fired by President Akufo-Addo.
