2024 Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John DRAMANI Mahama has questioned Finance Minister,Ken Ofori-Atta’s continuous stay in office despite his abysmal performance, which has plunged Ghana’s economy in crisis.
Speaking at Twifo Praso in the Central region as part of his #Building Ghana tour, the former President recounted how some NPP MPs, fed up with the the status quo, petitioned the President to fire his cousin.
” I can’t understand why the President has refused to remove his brother from the the Finance Ministry.
He has refused to listen to everyone.
Eighty NPP MPs signed a petition for removal of the Finance Minister but the President refused” he queried
He added .. “it’s difficult to apprehend why the same person is kept at the ministry, despite the glaring failure”
He intimated that Nana Akufo Addo himself has lost hope and has confessed that openly.
“He told journalists recently during an interview, who ever will take over as next President after him will restore the economy” – Mr Mahama recalled.
The NDC flagbearer, who several independent polls have tipped to win the next election said the next election must be a communal labour and that Ghanaians must come out in their numbers to vote against the current government.
