The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama, has called on President Akufo-Addo to sanction his finance Minister following the murky issues surrounding the controversial Agyapa Royalties Agreement.

He claimed the damning report by the Special Prosecutor does not bode well for the Finance Minister and dents the reputation of his government if he fails to relieve him of his job.

“…If you want to act evenly, then you must also give some sanctions to the Finance Minister,” Mr Mahama told Starr FM on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, former President John Dramani Mahama has said returning the controversial Agyapa Royalties Agreement to Parliament is not an option.

He maintained that there is ample evidence that the state has been shortchanged in the deal and should be withdrawn completely.

“For me, the issue is not about returning it to parliament for review. I think it should be withdrawn completely. And there is no hurry to bring it back; i mean a whole new look should be taken about what we want to do with our gold royalties and then consensus built around it before any such agreement is brought to parliament,” he argued.
