The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Shirley Ayorkor Botwey has indicated her resolve to seek redress from Parliament’s privileges Committee on what she says is the violation of her rights by opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)  Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George.
According to her, the Ningo Prampram legislator shot the video during what she calls a heated conversation between her and the opposition NDC Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency and ranking Member of the foreign affairs committee in parliament, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.
Mr. Ablakwa has raised the red flags about the purchase of a building in Oslo, Norway to serve as Ghana’s chancery in that country.
According to him the figure of 16 Million dollars has been inflated by the Ministry and that it will not be prudent for parliament to approve the purchase.
But the Minister who did not take kindly to the accusation by Mr. Ablakwa confronted him in Parliament and this resulted in heated exchanges, which was recorded by Mr. Sam George.
The Minister who held a press briefing to dilate on the matter said, she had approached Mr. Ablakwa to let him know that there was no need to raise the matter on the floor of parliament, explaining that if Mr. Ablakwa had consulted her, he would have known that the matter was a non-starter.
