The minority caucus in Parliament’s accusations of a conflict of interest and flagrant economic mismanagement against the embattled Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, have been dismissed once more by himself.

After the discussion of the report by the ad hoc committee of Parliament established to look into the claims, Mr. Ofori-Atta addressed the allegations on the floor of the chamber and denied any wrongdoing, characterizing them as politically motivated.

“If I say I am innocent they [the minority] won’t believe me and if I ask for the truth and proof, they won’t be able to provide it. I have committed no crime,” Ken Ofori-Atta stated.

The Minority caucus submitted a vote of censure against the Finance Minister, charging him with economic incompetence, financial irresponsibility, conflict of interest, and egregious economic mismanagement.

The discussion, which was originally scheduled for Wednesday but was moved to Thursday, focused on whether or not the House should vote to remove Mr. Ofori-Atta from his position.

On November 25, 2022, the eight-person ad hoc committee that Speaker of the House Alban Bagbin appointed to look into the motion moved against the Finance Minister and delivered its findings to the House.
