Speaking to the press after President Akufo-Addo announced his nomination for finance minister, Mr Offori-Atta stated that the new government will work hard to prove to the Ghanaian people that their confidence in them, will not be in vain.

"We will have to examine our energy mix and I think we’re likely going to get a little bit more from gas which will then help in giving us a chance to breathe from that, so I don’t expect us to be increasing prices of fuel and ECG. We are looking actually to see how we can as we promised, bring some relief to Ghanaians," he said.

On Tuesday, President Nana Akufo-Addo named the first batch of nominees for the ministerial positions, which comprised of 13 names.
