A former deputy minister of finance, Kweku Ricketts-Hagan, has argued that President Akufo-Addo has lost confidence in the minister of finance, Ken Ofori-Atta.
Speaking during a panel discussion on Peace FM’s morning show, Kokrokoo, Ricketts-Hagan added that he sees the finance minister as someone who is incompetent.
This, he explained, is because the president chose to call on the Economic Management Team (EMT) to form a committee to investigate the depreciation of the cedi.
According to Peacefmonline.com, Ricketts-Hagan went on to say that the finance minister, under normal circumstances, should have been tasked with that responsibility.
“I feel sad for the finance minister; it seems the president is losing confidence in him. For the president to ask for a team to be put together like the Economic Management Team, it means you are incompetent,” he indicated.
Commenting on the Town Hall meeting organized by the Economic Management team (EMT), the former deputy finance minister said he was tempted to believe he was at an NPP rally when he showed up for the event.
