The Minister in charge of Food and Agriculture, Bryan Acheampong was shocked after he was seriously interrogated by Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson whom he considered a dear friend.
Mr. Acheampong, who thought his friendship with the Minority Leader will save him from being intensively interrogated when he appeared before the Appointments Committee of Parliament on Monday, had his hopes dashed.
While he was receiving punches from the Minority Leader, he exclaimed: “Ato you are my friend. Today, you don’t trust me? Ei Ato. You should be testifying on my credibility”.
In response, Dr. Forson who is currently the Member of Parliament for the Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam constituency in the Central Region said he was only doing his job as expected of him by Ghanaians.
“We are here for the people of Ghana, so we have to ask the questions that are needed.”
Dr. Forson was interrogating Bryan Acheampong, a former Minister of State at the National Security Ministry, on the role he played that led to the disturbances at the by-election held in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency on January 31, 2019.
The Abetifi lawmaker vehemently rejected claims that he deployed national security operatives to unleash mayhem at Ayawaso West Wuogon.
