Speaking to the media, Ashaiman MP Ernest Norgbey emphasized the necessity for the Special Prosecutor to conduct a comprehensive investigation into what the caucus believes to be potential fraudulent actions.

“We cannot countenance this, and this is fraud. If this is not corruption, what else will be corruption? A photocopy to cost GH¢78 per paper, GH¢59.10 per paper, totaling GH¢68.5 million, what are we doing? And so, we in the Minority are taking strong exception to this, and we are saying that the Special Prosecutor must look into this matter” he added.
