Security agencies must as a matter of urgency invite Rev Prof Emmanuel Martey for interrogation, Anti-corruption campaigner Vitus Azeem, has said.

This follows comments by the outgoing Presby Moderator that a political party attempted to bribe him with $100,000 to silence him.

“Politicians have tried all means to muzzle me, to get me but they can’t, they come with bribes, fat envelopes, $100, 000 … I want everybody to listen that politicians came to my house with $100, 000 and also with the promises that if you keep quiet, we will give you a house at Trasaaco with [a] swimming pool,” Rev Prof Martey said at a news conference on Tuesday.

A former Public Relations Officer of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana Dr Emmanuel Osei Acheampong subsequently revealed that the outgoing moderator of the church accepted $100,000 as bribe from the opposition NPP.

Speaking to Pulse.com.gh on the issue, Vitus Azeem said Prof Martey should have first reported the said politicians involved to the appropriate agencies.

He believes the outgoing Presby moderator should be invited for questioning.

“If it is true that he was offered those things, it is unfortunate because for a country or for a politician or for a political party to go and offer so much, a 100,00 dollars, and a car and a house to one person to be able to influence him or her in what he or she does, considering that is not the only influential person in the country, it’s a very serious problem because we cannot put a lot of resources into things like that.

“If it is very true, he should have reported the matter to the law enforcement agencies because corruption is criminal for both the giver and the receiver.

“I think he should go and make a formal complaint to the law enforcement agencies but if he doesn’t do that, one of the law enforcement agencies should invite him for questioning,” Vitus Azeem said.
