Hotel Kufuor: Back In The News
LISTEN OCT 28, 2005

Minority questions where about of motion on Hotel Kufuor Attempts by the minority in Parliament to bring the controversial "Hotel Kufuor" saga before the house proved futile on Friday as the majority questioned whether a motion on the matter has been brought before the house.

NDC Member of Parliament for Tamale South, Haruna Iddirsu had questioned why a motion tabled by the minority during the second meeting of the house just before recess had not been programmed on the agenda for the third meeting that opened last Tuesday.

The Deputy Majority Leader, Abraham Ossei Aidooh, who had just presented the Business Statement for next week, said so far as their side was concerned no motion on ''Hotel Kufuor'' had been brought before the house to enable the house debate the matter.

Ownership of the hotel, close to President John Agyekum Kufour's residence, has in recent times generated so much heat, especially in the media.

The matter is currently before the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), although the President has denied ownership of the property, which is owned by his son, Chief Kufuor.

Mr Ossei Aidooh later told the GNA, that the Majority had conducted some search and had seen no such motion, which the minority claims it has introduced to Parliament.

He said motions are supposed to go through various processes after being tabled through the Clerks' Office to the Speaker's.

Attempts to get the minority to comment on the issue proved futile as they were in a meeting.
