News gathered by Talks Africa Media from Adom News suggest that, Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, has jabbed the fomer President Mahama over utterances made by him on the Agyapa Royalties agreement passed by Parliament through a Majority decision that, He said; “You want to be a tyrant or you want to be dictator who will not use the constitution to govern the country?”
Mr Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, who is also the Leader of Government Business in Parliament in an exclusive interview, said this to Adom News’ Parliamentary Correspondent, Abednego Asante Asiedu, following the controversy surrounding the entire agreement.
His comment follows a recent statement made by Mr Mahama who has made an emphatic declaration that the architects of the Agyapa Royalties deal are cronies of President Nana Akufo-Addo and hinted at abrogating the agreement should he win the December 7, 2020 polls.
The former President Mahama, who described the Agyapa agreement as a shady deal, insisted it’s stealing of Ghanaian royalties and further questioned the basis for the arrangement between the government and a Special Purpose Vehicle company, Agyapa Royalties Limited.
Apart from the ex-president’s concerns, about 15 Civil Society Organisations are also demanding a suspension of the Agyapa Royalties deal until all the necessary documents have been disclosed.
