The Acting Director of the Public Affairs Department of Parliament, Kate Addo, has asked the general public to be calm since measures are in place to probe alleged double salary claims involving some Ministers who doubled as MPs in the Mahama administration.
There is an ongoing investigation by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) into allegations of double salaries paid to some appointees under the erstwhile Mahama administration.
The claims have sparked public debate amid claims of political witch-hunting by members of the government since all the persons involved are members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
In an interview with Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive, Kate Addo said the offence of criminality in the said matter is yet to be proven and therefore implored the Police, Members of Parliament and the general public to remain calm and circumspect in their comments until the facts of the matter are determined.
She reassured the general public that Parliament will cooperate fully with law enforcement agencies to bring the matter to a conclusion.
Former Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Inusah Fuseini, former Minister of State in charge of Social and Allied Institutions Comfort Doyoe Ghansah and former Brong Ahafo Region Minister Eric Opoku all under the John Mahama-led administration have been cited in the possible corruption scandal.
