MPs Visa Fraud: I Am Scandalized, This Is A Disaster

Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper was short of words for the first time on Wednesday’s edition of ‘Kokrokoo’ after news broke that some legislators in Ghana’s Parliament have been involved in visa fraud.

Three sitting Members of Parliament (MP) and a former MP were cited by the UK High Commission for visa fraud.

In a petition to the Speaker of Parliament, the UK High Commissioner recounted stories of an alleged visa fraud.

The petition cited Richard Acheampong, MP for Bia East in the Western Region; Joseph Benhazin Dahah, MP for Asutifi North in the Brong Ahafo region; Johnson Kwaku Adu, MP for Ahafo Ano South West in the Ashanti Region and George Boakye, former MP for Asunafo South in the Brong Ahafo.

Kweku Baako Jnr speaking to the issue on PeaceFM said: “this is bad, this is serious, not good at all; they are in big trouble…this is not good at all. They can even lose their seat if they are not careful; I am actually scandalised; I am hurt. This is a disaster”

According to him, the three MPs can even be thrown out of parliament for their involvement.
