Place Ken Ofori Atta's Ministry Under Bawumia; He Is The Best Man To Head It-Allotey Jacobs

Bernard Allotey Jacobs, a former NDC Central Regional Chairman, has urged President Nana Addo to put Ken Ofori-Finance Atta's Ministry under the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

"The Finance Minister should not be allowed to lead negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) because the President has asked him to engage the Fund to support an economic program put together by the Government of Ghana," he said.

Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, stated that "the IMF engagement will strive to give balance-of-payment support in order to accelerate Ghana's recovery in the face of the COVID-19 epidemic and, recently, the Russia-Ukraine crisis," according to a release.

Participating in a panel debate on Peace FM "Allotey Jacobs gave the President advice on the "Kokrokoo" program, adding, "Sometimes you need to sacrifice people. In politics, it's critical. I insist that the Finance Ministry be placed under Dr. Bawumia's leadership because the Finance Minister cannot go to IMF and have it all his own way. That's what Dr. Bawumia has done for the team, after all "As a matter of fact.


Dr. Bawumia, the Finance Minister, should be in charge of the Finance Ministry if President Akufo-Addo wants to ensure his legacy is maintained, he said.
