Ken Ofori-Atta must resign or face censure motion – Kwabena Donkor



A former Power Minister, Kwabena Donkor, is asking the Finance Minister to resign immediately.

According to him, Ken Ofori-Atta’s handling of Ghana’s economy is abysmal and does not deserve to remain in office as the Minister in the wake of the country’s financial crisis.

The Pru West MP resigned back in 2015 due to his administration’s failure to end load shedding under his watch as Minister.

“I resigned [as Power Minister in 2015] on the basis of internal differences. We got to a point when I announced the end of load shedding. Some people disagreed and I said ‘fine, then let me go’. Fortunately, after I left we didn’t experience that load shedding again and that is my satisfaction,” he said on Thursday.

On the back of this, he wants Mr Ofori-Atta to emulate this gesture.

“The Minister should resign as a matter of honour,” he said.

Already, there is pressure mounting on Ken Ofori-Atta to resign following Ghana’s decision to seek an IMF bailout.
