Immediate past Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko has been used as a scapegoat to cover up for the rot in the Akufo-Addo led government, Member of Parliament for Bolga Central, Isaac Adongo has said.
According to Mr Adongo, Mr Agyarko was just â€œa poster boy for the create, loot and share gang led by President Akufo-Addoâ€.

His comment comes a day after the Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko was sacked over his role in the revised $510 million AMERI deal.
His sack came after almost reaching a deal with a third party, Mytilineos International Trading Company to handle the AMERI power plant for a 15-year period.
Many believe President Akufo-Addo decided to sack Boakye Agyarko for misleading him about the deal.
But on Asempa FMâ€™s Ekosii Sen programme Tuesday, Hon. Isaac Adongo refused to accept the narration that President Akufo-Addo was misled, insisting that the botched deal was a â€œcreate loot and shareâ€ gone bad.
â€œAkufo-Addo was not misled; it is just a create, loot and share gone badâ€ he stressed.
The Bolga Central MP maintained that the figures in the renegotiated agreement did not make economic sense.

â€œBoakye Agyarko is just a victim. I have not seen a coordinated create, loot and share that has gone bad than this oneâ€ he opined.
Hon Adongo said President Akufo-Addo cannot absolve himself from blame because he gave an executive approval for the bill to be passed.
â€œHe [Akufo-Addo] has decided to sacrifice the lame duck in the team to save himself,â€ he added.
