Bolga Central MP Isaac Adongo has criticized the leadership of the Minority in Parliament for consenting to the approval of Ken Ofori Atta as Finance minister.

He insists Ken Ofori Atta epitomizes all that is wrong with the country’s economy and shouldn’t have been given an approval by consensus.

“If there’s anybody who will put his life on the line to get Ken Ofori-Atta not to be the Finance Minister you can wake me up at any day. But its a collective decision, I disagree with the decision but I respect the view of the majority.”

This follows the vetting and approval of Ken Ofori-Atta as Finance Minister for the second term of the Akufo-Addo-led government.

Mr Ofori-Atta faced an unprecedented two-day vetting before the Parliament’s Appointments Committee after which the Committee by consensus recommended his approval to the House.

However, the Bolga Central MP has described as disappointing, the explanation provided by the leadership of the NDC that Mr. Ofori-Atta was approved because he has messed up the economy, thus, he must be made to clear up the mess by himself.

Speaking to the media, the Bolga Central MP observered that he was absent yesterday because he didn’t want to associate himself with the approval of Ken Ofori Atta.

In his opinion, there are equally competent and credible persons who can better run the economic affairs of the state.

“He’s [Ofori-Atta] messed us up up to this point, and there are very credible people in the NPP who can take up the task of turning the country’s economy around.
