The former Executive Director for the Ghana Integrity Initiatives (GII), Mr. Vitus Azeem has also stated that, Prof Martey should have rather reporter the case of bribery to the Police or appropriate quarters than to come to the media and make those allegation without full details.
The immediate past moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana at a news conference on Tuesday, 30 August 2016 revealed that some politicians attempted to bribe him with US$100,000.00 to gag 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 swimming pool.
“They have tried all means to muzzle me but they couldn’t and I tell you they can’t,” added Prof. Martey. Even though, Prof Martey felt short of mentioning any particular politician; it is believed that he was referring to the NDC.
But Mr. Azeem believes the best and right thing the pastor should have done is to have reported the matter to the appropriate institution since bribery issues are serious offense thus he could be even invited for questioning on the allegations made.
