Managing Editor for the Insight Newspaper, Mr. Kwesi Pratt has once again reacted to the ongoing brouhaha in the country about the just ended presentation on covid-19 funds and expenditure by the Finance Minister in parliament.
Speaking on Pan Africa TV this morning, Kwesi Pratt revealed that Ken Ofori Atta has created more confusion into the system than before. He added that most of the figures the minister quoted do not reflect the actual and real figures. He added that some of the figures were understated while others were overstated.
"The Finance minister goes to parliament, he reads a 15-page statement and at the end of it, there is no clarity at all. There is more confusion that it existed before he went to parliament"
He also added that Finance Minister should explain to Ghanaians whether the he made money available for NPP parliamentary candidates to be shared among themselves.
"The figures you have given us is different from the figures the president has given us. So explain to us how you are giving us a set of figures and the president is also giving us another set of figures" he said
Kwesi Pratt is therefore urging Parliament to do the needful and make sure that they do a nonpartisan probing into this income and expenditure presentation by the minister so that Ghanaians can know the final truth and figures.
