Member of Parliament for Bawku Central and former Minister of Environment, Science and Technology, Mahama Ayariga, has come out to categorically deny that he’s the star of a circulating s*x tape allegedly involving a Ghanaian politician and Aisha, the notorious Chinese galamsey queen.
The video, which shows a bald headed man and a Chinese lady getting their freak on, is allegedly a leaked portion of one of the videos Kweku Baako claimed the Chinese galamsey queens have recorded and use to blackmail politicians to stay in business.
The Committee set up to investigate allegations of bribery in Parliament presented their report on the floor of the house Thursday, sparking untold drama.
The Joe Ghartey led Committee said in their report that they had found no evidence of Ayariga’s bribery claim and thus, due to the slurs he had casted on the reputations of both the house and the honourable members he accused, he needed to apologise for his behaviour.
Pressure group OccupyGhana has called on the police to investigate the disgraceful allegations of bribery currently flying around Parliament involving the confirmation process of Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko.
In a statement, the group calls for an “independent Police investigation into the damning allegations and a no-holds-barred criminal prosecution of anyone found to be on the wrong side of Ghanaian law in this scandalous development.”
Member of Parliament for North Tongu and former Deputy Minister of Education, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has backed up the claims of bribery raised by Mahama Ayariga against Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko.
Mahama Ayariga claimed last week that the then minister designate Agyarko had paid a bribe of Ghc 3,000 each to minority MP’s to speed through his vetting process.
Chairman of the vetting committee, Joseph Osei Owusu has disclosed to Joy Fm that, Mahama Ayariga’s bribery allegation against Boakye Agyarko was intentionally purported.

Allegations of bribery are being levelled against the NPP’s top hierarchy in Parliament, allegedly attempting to woo the Minority Members on the vetting committee to successfully pass Boakye Agyarko as Energy Minister.
‘Mr Ayarikof’- Hassan Ayariga became a source of comic relief during the 2012 Presidential elections, and since then he strives very hard to maintain that reputation. After losing the PNC Presidential candidates race for the 2016 elections to Dr Edward Mahama , he left to form his own party, the All Perople’s Congress (APC). He seems determined to remain a clowning force in Ghana’s political affairs.
From all my little reading and observation of this world, I have come to the conclusion that there are three forms of evil; there’s evil in the service of good, there’s evil in the service of what one genuinely believes to be good (think brainwashed terrorists), then evil plainly perpetuated in the service of evil.
This analogy, I find, can be applied to the functionaries in this current government. There are those who are trying to genuinely move this country forward, have the expertise, but circumstances ally against them; there are those who are also trying to move the country forward, but are just incapable of doing so because they do not have the expertise; and then there are those who are not trying to move this country anywhere at all, and are incompetent to boot!
Mahama Ayariga certainly falls into this final category, his behaviour and airs displayed since the end of the African Cup proving once and for all this is a guy who has no clue what he’s doing, and resorts to baseless attacks and now baseless pronouncements to stay on the offensive against a people who would certainly expose him if he has to answer any of their ‘useless’ questions.
You see, when he went on the offensive against the media for performing the most basic of its function- demanding accountability from the government: I barely batted an eyelid. When you have no answer, you lash out, and that is exactly what he did. His responses only showed someone in a corner who has run out of options, and it just proved he has more to hide than if had just given a calm, reasoned answer.
The media however, are big boys, and can take care of themselves; but Ayariga’s latest outburst whilst also attacking the media, touches on the intelligence of every single Ghanaian. It is at this point that one cannot hold their tongue any longer, but must speak out against an argument so flawed, so fallacious; it really calls into question Havard’s reputation if this man was supposed to have trained there! (A little hyperbole never killed anyone)
