First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei-Owusu has rubbished suggestions that parliament erred in it's handling of the Agyapa Royalties deal.
According ng to Mr Osei-Owusu the corruption risk assessment done by the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu does not provide any evidence that any law was breached and, as a result, it does not bring the work of Parliament on the deal into question.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Citi News, the Bekwai MP added that the seventh parliament has done unprecedented work within its four-year period, as over 100 laws have been passed.

An analysis of the transaction by Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu in a 64-paged report raised red flags over the deal and took a swipe at the Minister of Finance and other officials who contributed to processes that led to the approval by Parliament.
He insisted that several processes were flouted prior to the parliamentary approval.
But the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta and other government officials have rejected the claims by the Special Prosecutor.
