Some Members of Parliament who are a part of the Majority Caucus are calling for the expulsion of the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, and the Minister of State in the Finance Ministry, Charles Adu Boahen.
On Tuesday, October 25, 2022, the group informed the media in Parliament.
The Asante-Akim North Constituency’s Andy Kwame Appiah-Kubi, who presented himself as speaking on behalf of the group of dissatisfied Majority MPs, explained that they had chosen to express their views because various concerns they had brought to the government had not been addressed favorably.
The group claims that dismissing Ofori-Atta and Adu Boahen will aid in regaining public trust in Ghana’s economy.
“Our caucus and our constituents are really concerned about the recent changes in the economy.
Through the parliamentary leadership and the party leadership, we have expressed our great worry to our president, but we have received no encouraging response.
“We are strongly requesting that the President immediately replace the Minister of Finance and the Minister of State at the Finance Ministry in order to restore optimism to the banking sector and halt the slowing of the growth of the economy,” said.
In light of the nation’s current economic situation, which has caused government to seek assistance from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), some Ghanaians, including opposition parties, have increased pressure on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to remove Mr. Ofori-Atta from office.
