I'm not entertaining "Rebel" MPs - Ex Prez. Kuffuor

Former President, John Agyekum Kufuor has distanced himself from widespread media reports suggesting that he has extended an invitation to the 98 New Patriotic Party (NPP) MPs who are calling for the Head of the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.

The statement was released after several media outlets reported on Thursday that the former president had called the concerned MPs to a meeting in an effort to convince the lawmakers to abandon the #KenMustGo campaign.

The Office of John Agyekum Kufuor released a statement in which it stated, "We desire to draw to the general public's attention that there is no truth to the said publication."

The office also voiced concern over what it perceived to be an increasingly obvious attributing of tales to the former President.

“The office of the former President vehemently detests the developing trend in disinformation that mischievously seeks to draw President Kufuor into issues that he has not commented on”, the statement continued.

Both Charles Adu Boahene, the recently fired Minister of State at the Finance Ministry, and Ofori-Atta were called for to be fired by the majority of MPs.

Ghana is currently seeking assistance from the International Monetary Fund, which led to initial criticism of the proposal (IMF).

In response to appeals from members of his own party, President Akufo-Addo encouraged the lawmakers to refrain from acting until Ghana's talks with the IMF were over.

President Akufo-Addo has previously rejected calls for Ken Ofori-Atta to be removed, saying he will keep supporting him. Ofori-Atta.

The NPP lawmakers have stated that they will not support the Minority's motion of censure against the Minister who is under fire.
