Things nearly got out of hand during Wednesday's panel discussion on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo'.

The National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi having a heap of documents before him, had insisted that an amount of GH?17,548,377.20 belonging to the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) has been locked up at All Time-Capital Limited.

“Incontrovertible evidence to us indicates that despite repeated efforts by the scheme since November 2018 to retrieve the invested funds and accrued interest, All Time-Capital Limited has failed to pay back. In a recent twist which has angered some workers at the NHIA, All Time-Capital Limited informed the NHIA Chief Executive that it could only attempt some payments if the invested funds were allowed to run for an additional year,” he indicated during a press conference.

He repeated similar sentiments during a panel discussion on Peace FM.

But New Patriotic Party (NPP) Ashanti Regional Secretary, Sam Payne sharply disagreed describing Sammy Gyamfi's submission as 'childish'.

Sammy Gyamfi responded in equal measure calling him a "liar". The simmering exchange was however doused by host of the show, Kwami Sefa Kayi.
