Mr Ken Ofori-Atta’s approval as Finance Minister by Parliament by voice vote today March 29 has received varied reactions from social media users.
While a section of the users lauds and congratulates the yet to be sworn-in Finance Minister for his appointment, another part has expressed worry as to why the NDC Caucus seconded his approval after raising concerns.
The members of the Minority have, however, declined to make any comments on the said matter after the opposition party through a communique signed by General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia urged members to be circumspect in their statements.
Below are some comments from social media:
The NDC will send Isaac Adongo to call Ken Ofori-Atta all sorts of names… Piccadilly whatever… If all that Adongo has been saying is indeed true and Ken Ofori-Atta is bad news for the country then why did the NDC caucus approve Ken at the end of the vetting?— Chairman🇬🇭🇨🇺 (@geenaeus) March 29, 2021
