A waste management firm has requested that the Appointments Committee of Parliament refuse Hon. O. B Amoah’s nomination as Minister of State for the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development.
In an appeal to the Appointment Committee, the business known as Ghana First Company Limited observed that Mr. OB Amoah was not honest as he was supposed to be before the committee with regard to some queries presented by the MP for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini.
Ghana First Company Limited claims that when the Minister of State Designate was questioned about the initiatives the company was working on across the nation, she was sparing with the truth and withheld important details.
According to the Corporation, O.B. Amoah knowingly misrepresented the true nature of the projects and the agreement governing them.
Despite having been involved in the project’s development and possessing the project’s paperwork, the company claimed in their petition that OB Amoah had misrepresented the facts and numbers regarding the sanitation company’s projects.
According to OB Amoah’s business, they think he has twisted the truth to serve his narrow political interests in order to win the committee’s and parliament’s support.
“It is in this note that we hereby express our disappointment and dissatisfaction about the responses which Hon O.B Amoah gave on the Ghana First Co. Ltd and the Clean Ghana Project both in his two vettings which are factually incorrect and inaccurate. We strongly believe the minister designate was trying to hide the truth from the good people of Ghana as well as Parliament having regards to the fact that he has all the facts on these projects but twisted the facts to suit his parochial interest for Parliament to approve his nomination,” parts of the company’s petition read.
The business contends that O. B. Amoah does not merit the support of parliament for his appointment to the position of Minister of State at the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development because of this claimed dishonesty on his behalf.
The ministry’s correct and efficient operation will be adversely affected, according to the business, by his approval.
“We strongly believe if Hon. O.B Amoah gets the approval of Parliament to become Minister of State for the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, it will not augur well for the smooth running of the Ministry of Local Government. This has become necessary for the company to do this because every Ghanaian has an interest in this project and is waiting for this project to start functioning because of its importance and usefulness to the country, and sadly the very person who has the responsibility to make this happen and to tell the whole world the truth about this project has deliberately been hiding the truth about the projects,” the petition stated.
