We Are Solely Blaming Ofori-Atta For This “Trash” Economy: Haruna Iddrisu



We Are Solely Blaming Ofori-Atta For This "Trash" Economy

According to the minority leader Haruna Iddrisu, the economy’s problems are exclusively the fault of finance minister Ken Ofori-Atta.

Interestingly enough, the minority leader has referred to the present economic situation as trash.

“We are holding him solely responsible for the thrash Ghanaians economy, the economy of Ghana is trash and he is responsible for it. You are witnessing in Ghana the epileptic fall of the Cedi,” Haruna Iddridu highlighted.

Today, Thursday, November 10, we are anticipating to see the vote of censure against Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta.

According to the member from Tamale South, any attempt by NPP lawmakers to abandon their campaign to have Mr. Ofori-Atta removed will harm Ghana’s democracy by diminishing the oversight function of Parliament.

Furthermore, he acknowledged that the National Democratic Congress legislators lack the necessary number(i.e two-thirds) to pass their resolution; as a result, they will need the backing of the NPP MPs, who had earlier called for Mr. Ofori-Atta’s dismissal.

During his speech on Wednesday, November 8, at the Media General-sponsored political dialogue series, he said: “I’m determined to move the motion of censure. Admittedly, the Minority MPs might not reach the two-thirds threshold by themselves, so when the Majority announced they would assist us, it was reassuring.

If they back down, it will diminish Parliament’s oversight authority and the minister will have free reign,” he continued.
