Set new date for my vetting – Ofori Atta to Parliament

Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta
Finance minister-designate Ken Ofori Atta has asked the Appointment Committee of Parliament to reschedule the date for his vetting.

This comes after he travelled to the United States on Sunday February 14 to seek medical attention.

In a letter dated February 14, 2021 and addressed to the Chairman of the Appointments Committee of Parliament, Mr Ofori-Atta said “I will travel to the United States of America to undergo a required medical intervention currently not available in Ghana. I am expected to be away for two weeks.

“Therefore, I kindly request your direction on arranging a new date for my appearance before the committee.

“The Ministry of Finance is available to discuss the necessary consequential processes to arrange an alternative date,” Ofori-Atta stated in his letter to the Appointments Committee of Parliament.
