Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga, has urged the committee investigating the alleged bribery scandal to evaluate his evidence in the matter and take the necessary decision.

He said this when he appeared before the 5-member ad-hoc ommittee as a witness, to testify in the matter.

Although he was unable to give the Committee what they deemed as substantial evidence to support his bribery claims, he stated that his allegations were the facts available to him.

He therefore asked the committee to weigh his evidence and make a decision.

When asked whether he had any evidence that Hon First Deputy Speaker, Joe Osei-Owusu took money from the Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko and gave it to the Minority Chief Whip, Alhaji Mubarak Mohammed Muntaka to be given to him, he stated that; "It is your job to evaluate my evidence whether you consider it hear -say for which you will not give in to it, but I will stick to what I know.I am not here to evaluate evidence. I think that is your job."
