You knew all these about Ofori-Atta yet you approved his nomination – Gyampo tells NDC MPs

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament who are seeking to impeach the Finance Minister knew all the problems about Mr Ofori-Atta yet they approved his nomination, a Professor at the University of Ghana Ransford Gyampo has said.

Prof Gyampo questioned the motive of the NDC lawmakers who are seeking to impeach the Finance Minister on the basis of his fallings.

“You have seen this before, you said all these about Ofori-Atta, during vetting they raised these issues yet they passed him. The majority side were always going to support but the Minority foisted him on us.

“They had all the right to deny him but they did not. They knew these yet, approved the nomination of the Finance Minister

“When Ofori-Atta appeared before them, I don’t know whether you saw their composure, they were quiet, they gave him the chance, they said they are not going to support yet they voted for him. They said Hawa Koomson, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Agric Minister won’t be approved yet they passed them,” he said on the Key Points on TV3 Saturday October 29.

The Minority in Parliament has filed a motion for the removal of the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta.

The motion was filed by Asawase Member of Parliament Muntaka Mubarak and dated October 24, 2022.

The opposition lawmakers believe the Finance Minister has failed in managing the economy.

“We’re glad there’s positive indication some of our NPP colleagues will support us.”
