The Nadowli Kaleo MP accused MPs of taking bribes at a seminar in Koforidua organised by the Business Sector Advocacy Challenge (BUSAC) Fund.
Mr. Bagbin said: “The reality is that MPs are Ghanaians and there is evidence that some MPs take bribes and come to the floor and try to articulate the views of their sponsors”.
His comments have caused parliament to set up a special committee to investigate the claims against MPs.
But speaking on Eyewitness News, Mr Azeem said “parliament may want to investigate their own member, but then we should have an independent body to investigate that whole issue of parliament taking monies from people to do their work.’’
According to him the investigation team made up of only parliamentarians will not inspire confidence in the general public.
