‘Fire Ofori-Atta, relieve Bawumia to salvage economy’ – NDC demands from Akufo-Addo

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is asking President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to fire the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta and his Veep, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as lead persons of the Economic Management Team (EMT).

Addressing the media at a press conference Tuesday, August 3, 2022, National Communications Officer of the party, Sammy Gyamfi, said the first person on the list to be ousted is “Ken Ofori-Atta who has proven to be an unmitigated disaster when it comes to economic management.”

The NDC says the Finance Minister has crippled the economy at the expense of his enterprise, Databank, to the extent that investors have lost interest in coming into the country.

“…The last two puzzles for this government to resolve if it is serious about bringing our economic back on track and restoring investor confidence is to get rid of the two villains who have been at the centre of recking this havoc on our economy.

“First on this list is without doubt the finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta who has proven to be an unmitigated disaster when it comes to economic management. President Akufo-Addo’s cousin has run down our economy through excessive borrowings that his personal company Databank profits from.

“Today, his name scares away investors and evokes a feeling of insecurity for every Ghanaian. Ken Ofori-Atta has become like stale water in a bottle and the earlier President Akufo-Addo fire his underperforming cousin, the better for the economy and all of us.

“As the venerable former President Mahama recently said, regardless of our running to the IMF, the only way to begin the process of rebuilding, if we are to get any good deal from the IMF is to sack Ken Ofori-Atta immediately and appoint a fresh, able hand in his stead to lead the IMF negotiations.

Next on the list the NDC is demanding to be removed is Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia.

“The next important thing for President Akufo-Addo to do is to relieve his jocular Vice President, Alhaji Bawumia from his position as head of the Economic Management Team. The once so-called “solid economic management team” has now been reduced to a gaseous team who have deserted their roles are no where to be found in these difficult and critical times.

“It is about time our tired, clueless and incompetent Vice President is finally relieved for new ideas and competent hands to take over and steer the Economic Management Team at this time of unspeakable hardships.”

They expect President Akufo-Addo to listen to their counsel for once to help redeem Ghana from its current woes.
