I’ll Sack Ofori-Atta after IMF deal – Akufo-Addo

26 October 2022

The Majority Caucus in Parliament says the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo insists Ken Ofori-Atta should remain in office until the International Monetary Fund arrangements are over.

It could be remembered that on Tuesday, October 25 some 80 Majority Members of Parliament prayed the President to as a matter of urgency sack the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta and the Minister of State at the Finance Ministry, Charles Adu-Boahene.

They argue that these two persons must be shown the exit in order to restore confidence in the economy amidst reports that Ghana’s currency is now the worst-performing currency in the world.

But a statement issued by the Majority Caucus in Parliament said the President met with the aggrieved members and pleaded with them that the Minister who has started the negotiations with IMF should be made to finish his work before any decision is taken on his future in government.

Also, the President pleaded that he should be made to present the Statement and Economic policy in November 2022 and the subsequent passage of the appropriation bill before their demands are acted upon.

The Majority caucus in its statement said it has acceded to the President’s appeal.
