Allow Ofori-Atta to seal IMF deal – Akufo-Addo to NPP MP’s

In order to wrap up talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) before he leaves office, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has pleaded with parliamentarians from the ruling party to remove Ken Ofori-Atta from his position as finance minister.

He claims that by removing the minister from office, the economy’s confidence will be restored.
This was stated by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo during a meeting with the irate MPs on Tuesday, October 25 at Jubilee House.

According to certain media reports, the irate MPs continued to request that their relative leave the finance ministry because they were upset with the President’s attitude toward him.

“Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has asked Ken Ofori-Atta to be given three more weeks to conclude the IMF negotiations,” Accra-based Citi FM reported.

In an effort to restore public trust in the economy, some NPP MPs called a news conference on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, and demanded the removal of Ofori-Atta and Charles Adu Boahen, the Minister of State for Finance.

If the president ignores their request, the backbencher MPs, according to their spokesperson Andy Kwame Appiah-Kubi, have threatened to stop working with the government and support the 2023 budget.

“We have had occasions to defend allegations of conflicts of interest, lack of confidence, and trust against the leadership of the Finance Ministry.

“The recent development within the economy is of major concern to our caucus and our constituents. We have made our grave concern to our president through the parliamentary leadership and the leadership of the party without and positive response,” Andy Appiah Kubi said.
