Pressure on Akufo Addo to sack Minister of Finance and his Deputy.

The President of Ghana, Akufo-Addo from all quarters within and outside the NPP is facing problems as to whether to sack Ken Ofori-Atta and John Kumah of their jobs as Minister of Finance and Deputy respectively.

As we all the that, Ghana is currently not stable and day in day out, things do not stand still and so if it's possible we should go to the international monetary fund for help, suggested by the Minister of Finance.

Due to this issue, many people thought of it and said that, going to the IMF for help is what overtakes the mind of Ken Ofori Atta and that he do not utilize the resources wisely. People such as John Assibey and others and very competent enough for that position and so they should be replaced.

The calls for dismissal of the Finance Minister was first made and repeated today by John Dramani Mahama, He believed that, the spoon that was used to cook, shouldn't be the same spoon that will be used eat the meal, this means, anyone who creates a mess should not be the same person to Lead the country’s negotiations at the International Monetary Fund.

The Finance Minister who has supervised the disastrous collapse of the economy shouldn't be part of the team of negotiators with the IMF. Due to this, stakeholders had lost trust and confidence in him. They then urge Akufo-Addo to take bold decision to replace the finance minister and his deputy immediately with a more assured and competent person who is willing and able to work tirelessly to turn our hopeless situation around.

Mahama early this morning said that watching Ken Ofori-Atta and John Kumah’s videos speaking few weeks ago in which they insisted that there is no IMF on the agenda is false and I think they should resign. In Ghana, getting politicians to accept their responsibility is hard but the good must be done for the better.

Many users who had links with the NPP like Moses Anglin said, people must be accountable for whatever they do whether good or bad. We want to stand by our government and party always because we want to see people taking responsibility for their actions
