The Deputy Minister for Sanitation, Hon Amidu Issahaku Chinnia has described as strange calls for his removal as a Deputy Minister by the Ghana Integrity Initiative just because his brother and others won contracts at the Upper West Regional Coordinating Council when he served as a Deputy Minister in the region then.
Speaking to the media in Accra, Hon Chinnia explained that he can not be deemed culpable in a matter involving the company and people he knows who are business men and embarks on lawful businesses in Ghana including the Upper West Region..
“The company won the said contracts under reference through competitive tender”
Hon Chinnia added “It is only natural that the company be treated as a seperate legal entity which has nothing to do with me”
He indicated that he was neither a share holder nor Director of his brother’s company and sees calls for his dismissal or investigations by the Ghana Intergrity Initiative as misdirected and abuse of their core mandate.
The Deputy Minister who is also the Member of Parliament for the Sisala East constituency of the Upper West Region, has therefore called on his constituents to disregard the calculated mischief and ochestration against his person saying that he was unperturbed and any investigations would vindicate him.
Hon Amidu Issahaku Chinnia used the media opportunity to indicate that he was available for any investigations to prove his innocence and added that he was strong, hearty and cheerful.
