The Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, is not pleased with the response from the Members of Parliament (MPs) on the Majority side on why they have changed their mind for the immediate removal of Ken Ofori-Atta as Finance Minister after meeting President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on the matter.
The Majority caucus in a statement said “it has agreed to accede to the President’s appeal” to allow the Minister stay in office to seal Ghana’s bailout deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
The NDC lawmaker however disagrees with the directive and argues that, the continuous stay in office of Ken Ofori-Atta and Minister of State at the Finance Ministry, Charles Adu Boahen will “cause more damage to lives and livelihoods.”
In a Facebook post, he described the Finance Minister as a “disastrous” personality who shouldn’t be allowed to “present a 2023 Budget and negotiate an IMF program he wouldn’t be around to implement.”
