According to Lawyer Andy Kwame Appiah-Kubi, a spokesperson for the majority of MPs calling for the resignation of the Finance Minister, the President is likely to take action on the request to remove Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta from his position in the coming days.
Mr. Andy Kwame Appiah-Kubi reaffirmed in a conversation with journalists in parliament that they had upheld their end of the bargain and anticipate President Akufo-Addo to honor the agreement about Mr. Ofori- Atta’s dismissal.
“We have a roadmap between our good selves and the president in respect of Mr. Ofori-Atta’s engagement. So by the time we finish with the Appropriation, we expect Mr Ofori-Atta to be disengaged,” Mr Appiah-Kubi added.
The Finance Minister has been up against certain opposing elements in the Chamber that seek to remove him from his position.
Insisting that Ken Ofori-Atta has destroyed the nation’s economy and must be removed, the NDC Minority caucus has submitted a motion for a vote of censure.
However, President Akufo-Addo and the party caucus have made some behind-the-scenes efforts to thwart the majority of MPs’ campaign to fire the Finance Minister.
However, after briefly postponing its demands for Ofori-dismissal, Atta’s the coalition of MPs from the ruling party has stepped up pressure for the President to grant its requests right away.
“We anticipate that the President will fulfill his obligation under the contract.
When we asked him for anything, he said, “Wait till we finish with the Budget, then I’ll grant your request,”
Therefore, we anticipate that the president would grant our request, the NPP MP stated.
