- Minority in parliament is calling on the finance minister to resign
- This follows a report by CHRAJ over the innocence of Ken Ofori Attah
Finance minister, Ken Ofori Attah, is being asked to resign his position following revelations made into the controversial $2.25billion bond by CHRAJ.
The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) recently released a 141 paged document into whether or not the finance minister erred in floating the bonds.
According to the report, Mr Ofori-Atta’s status at Databank and Enterprise Group Limited whose objects relate to the securities market sector posed the challenge of a conflict of interest.
To this effect, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is calling for the immediate removal or resignation of the finance minister. According to him, Ken Ofori Attah has caused huge criminality against the government.
“We think the report has revealed some criminality and irregularities and so it should not be reduced to just one matter,” member of parliament for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhiyini argues.
