Ken Ofori-Atta Cries to Continue
Ken Ofori-Atta, the finance minister, has stated that he is ready to revive the economy of the nation since the future is promising.
Instead of demanding his execution, he asks Ghanaians to give him a chance to restart the country’s economy.
He claims that controlling Ghana’s economy has been excruciatingly painful for him.
According to an interview posted on Joy FM’s social media accounts, the Minister is heard emphasizing that the economic managers recognized the task at hand, noting that they were tackling persistent difficulties and taking into account the resources available.
“Just to reassure you, your finance minister has experienced all the aches and pains, so nobody can honestly claim we don’t know what we’re doing.
In extremely challenging circumstances, “the question is what resources do we have and how are we going to deploy them in the nation that we have while being very confident that the nation is purposed for greatness and we are blessed to have the opportunity to lead where we are going,” Ofori-Atta continued.
He assured the Association of Ghana Industries crowd, “Let me assure you all that your greatest bet is still Ghana (AGI).
This comes after the majority of parliamentarians demanded his immediate dismissal at a press conference on October 25.
The NPP MPs also want Charles Adu Biahen, the Minister of State for Finance, to be fired from his position.
They cited poor economic management and the challenging circumstances that people were going through as the cause.
However, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo intervened and begged the offended MPs to permit Ken Ofori-Atta to wrap up preliminary discussions with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), present the 2022 budget, and ensure that its appropriation was approved.
In the immediate aftermath, the president spoke to the nation about the economic difficulties and the government’s plans to overcome them.
Meanwhile, the Minority Caucus has filed for a vote of censure to get Ofori Atta removed from office.
