Ken Ofori-Atta: Ad-hoc committee to be televised live; Haruna Iddrisu, Muntaka, Dr Ato Forson to testify against Finance Minister

The other NDC MPs expected to fortify the Minority’s evidence for the embattled Finance Minister to be removed include the Minority Chief Whip, Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak and Ranking Member of the Finance Committee, Dr Cassiel Ato Forson.

The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, is expected to lead a crack team from the Minority in Parliament as the ad-hoc parliamentary committee investigating the Ken Ofori-Atta censure motion begins its work today, Tuesday, November 15, 2022.

The other NDC MPs expected to fortify the Minority’s evidence for the embattled Finance Minister to be removed include the Minority Chief Whip, Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak and Ranking Member of the Finance Committee, Dr Cassiel Ato Forson.

This follows the setting up of an ad-hoc committee to probe the allegations against the minister and report the same to the plenary for consideration.

The MPs from the Minority side are expected to adduce evidence to implicate the embattled Ofori-Atta when they appear before the committee to probe the allegations levelled by the NDC MPs in their vote of censure motion.

The co-chair of the committee Kobina Tahir Hammond who spoke to Kumasi-based Oyerepa TV, also added that the proceedings of the committee would be beamed live to Ghanaians and beyond.

“We held a meeting to discuss the modalities and agreed that the hearing will be public for all to see what transpires. We are confident we will do a thorough job,” the Adansi-Asokwa MP told host Kwesi Parker-Wilson.

The three NDC MPs are leading the charge from the Minority for the minister to be removed from office for, among others mismanaging the economy and his gross incompetence.

Beyond the country’s dire financial straits, which they blame on the minister’s doorstep, the NDC MPs also accused him of financial impropriety and corruption, necessitating the formation of the Ad-hoc committee to give the Finance Minister ample opportunity to respond to the allegations levelled against him.

It is based on the outcome of the committee’s report that the plenary would decide for the minister to stay or lose his job.
