Daily Graphic reporter apologizes to Speaker, Parliament

The Daily Graphic’s parliamentary correspondence, Mark-Anthony Vinorkor has rendered an unqualified apology to the Speaker and Leadership of Parliament for the inaccuracies in his two reportages over the CI 94 for the December general elections.

He put in the plea when he appeared before the Privileges Committee of Parliament on Tuesday to answer to questions over the said reportages which were published by his employers, Daily Graphic a fortnight ago.

Mr. Vinorkor was suspended from reporting from Parliament by the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Edward Doe Adjaho after the House found inaccuracies in his reportage over the CI94.

The reporter’s attention was drawn to an earlier publication in the Daily Graphic over the same CI94 believing that he would use the opportunity granted him to correct the wrong.

But for unknown reasons, the correction was not done. Instead, another report similar to the earlier one was published, thereby irking the Speaker and the leadership of the House to subpoena the reporter, Madam Kate Addo and Edwin-Arthur to appear before the Privileges Committee.
