Sack Ofori-Atta or we boycott govt business- NPP MPs to Akufo-Addo

Some New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentarians are demanding the sacking of Ken Ofori-Atta as Finance Minister with immediate effect.

The MPs, numbering about 80, held a press conference on Tuesday to impress on the President to relieve his cousin of managing the national purse or risk losing their support for government business.

Also, they want the Minister of State in charge of Finance at the Office of the President to be subjected to a similar fate.

The MPs say their sentiments reflect the position of most of the NPP members in the House.

This has been a unanimous call for the opposition legislators who have constantly called for the Minister’s head with some civil society organisations joining the fray at a point.

One of the key cards on the table for these majority MPs is the approval of the 2022 budget which will be pivotal to expenditure, especially at a time when government finances are in limbo.

The development comes amid a worsening economic downturn in the country as the Ministry looks to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for a crucial bailout.
