Radio presenter Blakk Rasta has waded into recent calls for the sacking of Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta by a bloc of ruling party lawmakers.
In his view, there was no point going after Ofori-Atta alone especially when the man who appointed him stresses his continuous belief in his competence.
Speaking on the October 25, 2022 edition of his show on Accra-based 3FM, the ardent government critic said Ghanaians had allowed Akufo-Addo too much leverage to be toying with governance.
“This is a very democratic country that has sat back to look at this president play with this country. I am most excited that this president has proven to the whole world that he is most incompetent, he is too old to be president and his faculties stopped working several years back, the best he could have done to us was to retire.”
He continued that whiles the group of 80 New Patriotic Party Members of Parliament want, “want the Finance Minister to leave, may I extend it to the president himself? Why do you sack a man who believes and still believes that the Finance Minister is the best?
“Why do you sack the Finance Minister and leave the man who believes in him. To send Ofori-Atta home … and leave this sleeping president to continue sleeping and playing the Don Quixote,” he quizzed.
Blakk Rasta is asking why we are keen on sacking the finance Minister and leaving the man who believes in him to stay in office.
