The Ministry of Finance has described as false reports that President Akufo-Addo is refusing the resignation of Minister of State at the Finance Ministry, Charles Adu Boahen.
In a statement issued on social networking site, Twitter on Friday, October 28, 2022, the Ministry said “rumors about the Honourable Minister of State tendering in his resignation are untrue” and should be treated with all the contempt it deserves.
The rumors have been fueled by the Member of Parliament (MP) for the North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa. In a twitter post, Mr. Ablakwa alleged that the President has refused to accept the resignation of the Minister of State.
Rumours about the Honourable Minister of State tendering in his resignation are untrue, and should be disregarded. Stories of this nature are unhelpful at this time, and the general public is advised to disregard them completely.https://t.co/N5q5VavQ5L— Ministry of Finance, Ghana (@MoF_Ghana) October 28, 2022
This, the Ministry says the allegations are “untrue” and “unhelpful”; urging the general public to “disregard them completely”.
Mr. Adu Boahen had come under pressure last Tuesday with some members of the New Patriotic Party in Parliament demanding his removal together with Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta for the current economic crises.
The Majority MPs insisted that the removal of both Ministers will restore confidence in the economy.
However, after meeting the President, the Majority MPs have softened their stance accepting the President’s plea to have the Ministers stay in office to seal Ghana’s bailout deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
