Bolga Central MP Isaac Adongo has said, Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta is the “most dangerous” and “riskiest” Finance Minister Ghana has ever had.
The opposition lawmaker, President Nana Akufo-Addo must instantly get rid of Mr Ofori-Atta before he plunges the country into the abyss.
Mr Adongo said while talking to media in connection with the controversial $2.25billion bond issued by the government of Ghana in 2017, Mr Ofori-Atta sell a lot of lies about the transaction.
A probe by the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) into the matter did not make any conclusive adverse findings against Mr Ofori-Atta as far as the Minority’s allegation of conflict of interest vis-à-vis the issuance of the bond was concerned.
However, Mr Adongo told Moro Awudu that the “Minister of Finance came to lie to parliament under oath that, indeed, nothing went wrong. Today, it’s been found out that he lied to us because he breached the … Financial Management Act because the regulations and rules and guidelines of the Bank of Ghana were sidestepped and CHRAJ says that in actual fact, the Minister of Finance should have brought the terms and conditions of the loan before parliament”.
