Akufo-Addo turns down Ken Ofori-Atta’s resignation letter

A member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Richard Amoako Baah, has alleged that Minister of Finance Ken Ofori-Atta resigned from his post.

But he says on Accra-based Joy FM that the resignation was rejected by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Ken Ofori-Atta earlier in an exclusive interview, said he will not resign as suggested by others because asking him to resign is “like telling a father to resign from his children because he changed his mind.”

Reacting to the comments by the Finance Minister, Dr. Amoako Baah said Ken Ofori-Atta’s explanation is a “counterfeit logic”.

“First of all we are not his children. The second thing is that if you are a father and you are not taking good care of your children, the social services will come and take the children away from you and may put you in jail,” he explained.

According to him, the country is already in a ditch thus, Mr. Ofori-Atta’s response “makes no sense”.

He believes that although the Finance Minister must resign, it should be “when all is said and done” and the economy has been revived.

In the last few days, many Ghanaians, including the Minority in Parliament and Former President John Mahama, have called for the resignation of the Finance Minister.

John Dramani Mahama urgently charged President Akufo-Addo to replace his Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.

In a Facebook post on July 2, John Mahama said Mr Ofori-Atta has already lost his credibility, trust and confidence after he supervised “the disastrous collapse of the economy
