Pressure Mounts As 18 MPs Join The 80 Other MPs To Call For The Removal Of Ken Ofori-Atta

There is a lot of pressure on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to remove the Finance Minister, Ofori-Atta from office in light of the country’s current economic predicaments.

The Minority in Parliament also filed a motion for a vote of censure against Ofori-Atta.

Some NPP MPs took a stand to voice their position after several efforts to have the government address the plights of their constituents concerning the ailing economy had proved futile.

President Nana Addo then asked members of the New Patriotic Party in Parliament (MPs) demanding the removal of Ken Ofori-Atta as Finance Minister to hold on till Ghana concludes negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

In a new development, additional 18 MPs have joined the previous 80 NPP MPs to call for the removal of the Finance Minister. 98 NPP MPs have collectively decided to boycott next week’s budget presentation and all Finance Ministry business if the President does not dismiss Mr Ofori Atta immediately.

The Finance Minister has called for fairness in an unprecedented formal procedure to remove him from office as censure hearings began yesterday.

Ghana is going through a tough time with its economy, as there seem to be no solutions for its challenges while the debt stock has hit unsustainable levels.
