Haruna Iddrisu, the minority leader, Muntaka Mubarak, the minority chief whip, and Dr. Casiel Ato Forson, the ranking member on the finance committee, are the three minority MPs who are expected to testify before the ad hoc committee looking into the vote of censure motion against Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta.

The three MPs who are campaigning for Ken Ofori Atta's resignation are confident that the sector has broken the law and is also to blame for the worsening economic situation in the nation.

In an interview, committee co-chair KT Hammond intimated that the committee's hearing will be made public.

“We held a meeting [14th November, 2022] to discuss the modalities. We agreed at the meeting that the hearing will be public for all to see what transpires. We are confident we will do a thorough job so tomorrow (15th November, 2022) bring your cameras and carry the hearing live,” Hammond told Kumasi-based Oyerepa TV.

A committee member also said that when called upon, the three minority MPs will appear before the committee and provide their testimony.

The purpose of creating the Ad-hoc committee is to provide the Finance Minister with a chance to address the accusations made against him in a motion to censure.

The formation of the ad hoc committee was authorized by Speaker Alban Bagbin so that the minister may appear before it and possibly be represented by counsel.

The speaker claims that a minister's attorney is only permitted to represent the minister in proceedings at the committee level and not on the floor of the house.

A decision would be made based on the committee's findings.
