Ken Ofori Attah is the only finance minister designate with a background in investment banking

But it seems his unique voice did not sit down well with some members of the appointment committee during his vetting on Sunday as the economist and co-founder of Databank was told on a number of times to raise his voice as he sounded too soft.

Ken Ofori-Atta was the third appointee to be vetted on Friday after two other minister-designates had gone through the drill.

Reacting to events which unfolded at the vetting, second vice chair of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Fredua Ofori-Atta noted that despite the soft-spoken nature of Finance minister-designate of Ken Ofori-Atta, there was the need for him to "work on his voice".

Ken's voice is no guarantee of his work output as he is respected as one of the most refined investment bankers in Ghana today. In fact, business leaders in the private sector have praised his nomination stating that his inclusion as finance minister is proof that Nana Addo is bent on making Ghana's economic problems history.
