Former speaker under investigations over missing furnishings

By myjoyonline

The parliamentary inventory board is to conduct investigations into circumstances under which former Speaker Ebenezer Begyina Sekyi Hughes allegedly made away with furnishings at his official residence.

A report by The Informer Newspaper subsequently corroborated by Joy reporters indicates the official residence has been stripped of a set of furniture worth GH ¢27700 said to have been paid for by the state.

Household items, electrical appliances, carpets, generator, flower pots and pillow cases are all said to be missing.

No clear reasons have been adduced by the former speaker to justify the absence of the missing items.

This has disenabled the sitting speaker, Mrs Joyce Banford Addo from moving in three months after being elected to the house.

The parliamentary service ordered an inventory of items left at the residence and is expected to take a decision soon.
