The three NDC MPs are leading the charge from the Minority for the minister to be removed from office for, among others mismanaging the economy and his gross incompetence.
Beyond the country's dire financial straits, which they blame on the minister's doorstep, the NDC MPs also accused him of financial impropriety and corruption, necessitating the formation of the Ad-hoc committee to give the Finance Minister ample opportunity to respond to the allegations levelled against him.
