Akpaloo accuses MPs of taking bribes to approve ministerial nominees


Summary short_text

The LPG 2020 Presidential Candidate, speaking in an interview on Onua FM's Yen Sempa morning show on Wednesday, April 21 accused the lawmakers, especially those on the Appointments Committee, of taking bribes before approving the ministers.

He noted that the practice has been in existence since 1992 and has been narrowed to the local assemblies, where appointees for metropolitan, municipal, and district chief executives are compelled to pay bribes to assembly members for endorsement.

Mr Akpaloo also asserted that every MP before going to the polls at the constituency level paid bribe to the party delegates for endorsement, hence the unrelenting position to clandestinely take bribe from government appointees for approval by the lawmakers.
