The finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta has spoken with confidence and boldness concerning the financial and economical state of the country after series of backlash reached him from all sources.
Even though there are many sectors of government who are involved in the decision making and how to go about the economy, every financial statement that does not go really well for Ghanaians brings nothing but insults to the finance minister.
Ken Ofori-Atta who is the face of the finance sector of this current government has responded to claims that he is not managing the finance of the country very well. These allegations came chasing him after he petitioned a 28 million dollars car loan to the Parliament House.
Many have opposed and resisted this plea by the finance department and that’s because they deem it irrelevant. The finance minister who has witnessed this has sent a press statement in which he has declared that there is no reason to do what is contrary to that which will benefit the country.
He revealed that the decisions which have been made public is not something inspired by him but authorities, including him who have sat down and given a reasonable thought to the importance and benefits of the financial decisions being made.
I have heard the comments from our fellow Ghanaians on what their thoughts on these issues are. We will look into it and see what we can do as a country. For now, I can say that no one should feel threatened by the government’s decisions because they’re directed at helping the entire country.
Even after this statement, many have also commented and reacted stating that, buying new cars for hundreds of members of parliament will not help promote the country in anyway. As a result, these sweetening words to manipulate Ghanaians should avoided.
