Strategic Thinkers Network (STRANEK); a governance Think Tank has condemned the conduct of the Majority group in Parliament for refusing to factor the views of the Minority group into the report of the five man Adhoc Committee set up to investigate the alleged Cash-for-Seat saga.
According to STRANEK, the Majority group, by their stand are not rising above partisanship interest and that the group’s stand does not appear to be in the interest of the Ghana’s fragile democracy.
“We therefore call for a fresh probe by an independent body”.
This was contained in a release on Wednesday February 7, 2018 and signed by its Executive Director, Nii Tettey Tetteh.

Conduct a Fresh Probe on Cash-for-Seat Saga – STRANEK
Having witnessed the events surrounding the Cash for Seat report, we at STRANEK condemn the conduct of the majority in not factoring the report of the minority in order to get a fair and candid report.
It is rather unfortunate that in this particular instance, the majority in Parliament is not rising above partisan interest to work diligently to save Ghana’s democracy and reputation.
We believe that such a modus operandi on the side of the majority will not inure to the strengthening of the oversight responsibilities of Parliament.
We therefore call for a fresh probe by an independent body. Conclusively, this fresh probe will go a long way to know the actual outstanding issues for a logical conclusion on this matter. We are all involved in building our motherland Ghana.
