All NPP MPs Are Now Aligned On Need To Sack Ofori-Atta – Majority Leader
Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has declared that the entire Majority Caucus is now in support of the calls for Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta to be sacked. The call for Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta’s dismissal started with 80 NPP MPs threatening to boycott government business if he is not also sacked. The Minority in the Parliament
subsequently backed the calls by the 80 NPP MPs, and filed a vote of censure accordingly. The censure motion has been admitted and tabled to be voted upon in the House. But days before the vote of censure against Ken Ofori Atta, Mr. Kyei Mensah Bonsu has disclosed that the entire NPP caucus is in support of the President’s
cousin being removed from office. Mr. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said this at a news conference on Thursday, November 3, 2022. “Even though the issue started with the group of 80 plus, the caucus meeting aligned with the position of that group, so it is no longer the cause of the 80 plus MPs. It is the agenda for the entire caucus
and we are having some discussions on that, he said. The Suame MP in an interview on Tuesday, November 1 revealed that one of Ghana’s wealthy businessmen approached the MPs to influence their decision. I’m told on authority that some businessman came here and tried to do something, he said. The lawmaker, during the news conference on Thursday noted that his side will probe the incident.
