John Jinapor debunks bribery allegations in the approval of new ministers


Member of Parliament for Yapei-Kusawgu constituency and former deputy minister for power, John Abdulai Jinapor has refuted allegations of being part of a bribery syndicate in the approval of new ministers.

The lawmaker who is also a Ranking Member of Mines and Energy Committee of Parliament in a Facebook post, said he doesn't need any form of monetary influence or support to live a decent life.

He further added that he will never sell his conscience for anything regardless of the amount or consideration.

His outburst is in response to a social media list of MPs who were allegedly compromised in respect of the approval of nominated ministers and judges.

"Let me state without fear or equivocation that i will never sell my conscience, no matter the amount or consideration. I am way way above that".

He continued, "I do not need any form of monetary influence or support to live a decent life, neither do i need any sponsorship to prosecute my political campaign", he maintained.


Parliament on Friday, March 24, 2023, approved all six ministerial nominees of President Akufo Addo.

Aftermath of the approval which was done in secret balloting, allegations went viral that some members of the minority side in Parliament were bribed by the ministerial nominees prior to the secret ballot.

The alleged list making waves on social media captured the former deputy minister for power under the erstwhile Mahama led administration as one of the MPs which he has refuted outrightly.

This development however, is in sharp contrast of the leadership of the National Democratic Congress's directive not to approve the nominees as part of steps to cut down the size of the government.
