P.C. Appiah-Ofori, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Asikuma-Odoben Brakwa has described former President John Agyekum Kufuor as a greedy person.

He said the greed of the former President showed when he hijacked negotiations for the privatization of Ghana Telecom without reference to the Divestiture Implementation Committee.

Mr. Appiah-Ofori was speaking in an interview with Radio Gold’s Morning Show anchor, Suhuyini Alhassan. When asked why he thought that the privatization of Ghana Telecom was incompetently handled, he said “I don’t know, I don’t know. I guess it was just greed.”

Suhuyini then asked “Would you say that the former President was greedy?”

P.C. Appiah Ofori then said “I wouldn’t say no.” when pushed further he retorted, “I have said that I won’t say no. why was he personally involved in the negotiations? Was it lawful for the President to be responsible for the sale of Ghana Telecom when the Divestiture Implementation Committee had that responsibility?”

P.C. Appiah Ofori said he stood by his allegation that some NPP Members of Parliament took bribes of US$5,000 each to approve the Vodafone deal. When asked if he still stood by the allegation, his response was “Have I retracted the allegation? I still stand by it and I have the evidence.”

Mr. Appiah Ofori said he was hoping that his colleagues would carry out the threat to take legal action against him to enable him come out with the evidence in his defence.

“They know that if they send me to court I will expose them. I have the evidence. I have the list of all the MPs who took the bribe.
“I will not release the list because I know that if some journalists get it, they will use it.

When he was told that Radio Gold would use the evidence “well”, he said that “Konkonsa” would be more than happy to publish the full list of the Members of Parliament who took the bribes.
“I will never give you the list because if Kokonsa gets it eeh, eeh, he will use it oooh”.
