Former President John Dramani Mahama has asked President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to relieve the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta of his post.
According to him, the president must take such action because Mr. Ofori-Atta, who has been serving in the role since 2017, has not lived up to expectations in the management of Ghana’s economy.
He said Ofori-Atta, as well as the Economic Management Team, have plunged the country into an economic crisis, bringing untoward hardships to Ghanaians.
“Those directly responsible for the economic crisis must bear responsibility, and it is inconceivable that the Minister of Finance [Ken Ofori-Atta] remains at post. Having presided over the worst economic meltdown in Ghana’s recent history, the president must, as a matter of urgency and without further delay relive the Minister of Finance of his position,” Mahama said on Monday.
