Adom TV’s journalist, Omanhene Kwabena Asante has called on the Parliament to sanction Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.
This comes after the Minister failed to appear before the House to account for the use of COVID-19 funds.
“I will beg Parliament to discipline the Finance Minister, the impunity is too much. He must be disciplined so that the government will suffer and the president will see the consequences of what his relative is doing.
“To see the impact on Ghana, let the President know that besides and beyond Ken Ofori-Atta, we have potential Finance Ministers who can handle Ghana, what is this? He will not go to Parliament but expects the House to pass his bills?” Omanhene quizzed on the June 20 edition of Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show.
He also slammed the level of prioritization that Ofori-Atta gives to issues around the National Cathedral as compared to his evasive tactics whenever he is called upon to respond to issues in Parliament.
“A mere Finance Minister, you have disrespected us and now extended our attitude to Parliament, but you can go and conduct Cathedral business,” he lamented.
Told of the Minister’s excuse for failing to appear before Parliament, he retorted: “What issues has he raised, is he not sitting on GTV doing Cathedral business? Go to Parliament and respond to the issues and stop the Cathedral business.”
