Joy FM’s Kojo Yankson, Prof Dodoo face Parliament today

A showdown is expected in Ghana’s Parliament today as a clinical scientist Professor Alex Dodoo appears before the Privileges Committee for allegedly attacking MPs over the Ebola vaccines trial.

The lecturer incurred the wrath of the lawmakers following his claim that MPs are “ignorant” and lacked knowledge on the Ebola vaccine trial which is scheduled to take place in Ghana.

He is expected to appear with Joy FM’s breakfast show host Kojo Yankson. The ‘Super Morning Show’ host has been invited to serve as a witness in the contempt case.

“Invitation to attend upon the Committee of Privileges as witness to assist in investigation of contemptuous remarks allegedly made by Prof. Alex Dodoo in the media against Members of Parliament,” an invitation letter from Parliament to the broadcaster stated.

Prof. Dodoo was unable to meet the House on July 2 due to an international assignment.
