A showdown is in the offing between the Member of Parliament (MP) for Bawku Central and the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, as the former turned down an invitation to appear before the Office of Special Prosecutor.
Mahama Ayariga is allegedly in breach of tax regulations, for which reason the Special Prosecutor demanded that he should appear before the office.
According to Mahama Ayariga, he cannot oblige the invitation because it’s fraught with anomalies.
The invitation is for Tuesday but now that the MP has turned down the invitation, it is unknown what action the Special Prosecutor will take.
The Bawku Central MP is also expected to answer questions that pertain to alleged abuse of office.
The filing of a charge against the MP in March this year comes on the heels of complaints that the Special Prosecutor is not working after failing to prosecute persons perceived to be corrupt in the country.
Before this maiden action by the Special Prosecutor, a news item had gone round to the effect that very soon prosecutions would take place against suspects in the country.
It remains to be seen whether the MP would rescind his decision not to honour the June 4 invitation.
