Speaker sets 8-member c’ttee to investigate Ofori-Atta

The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has formed a committee to investigate the allegations made by the Minority in Parliament against Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, for which they filed a motion to remove him from office.

The eight-member committee, co-chaired by Dr. Dominic Ayine and KT Hammond, legislators for Bolgatanga East and Adansi-Asokwa, respectively, has seven working days to complete its work and submit its report.

The Speaker’s decision came after the Deputy Majority Leader in Parliament, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, challenged the Minority Motion on the grounds that the Finance Minister will suffer injustice if the application is approved by the House.

Mr. Afenyo-Markin stated that, upon closer examination, the Minority’s claims were criminal in nature.

To that end, he demanded that the minister be given a fair hearing.

The Minority accused Mr. Ofori-Atta of personally benefiting from every loan taken out by the government, among other things.

However, the Member of Parliament for Effutu stated that “these matters, upon proper scrutiny, are criminal in nature.” “The Minister should be heard fairly.”

“If we proceed with the application, we will be doing a great disservice to our colleague.” “If this application is granted, it will be an injustice and an unfairness because the minister will not have had enough time to prepare for his defense,” he emphasized.

Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu justified the motion to remove the Finance Minister by saying President Akufo-Addo was not ready to fire him.

As a result, he asked the majority members of Parliament to back the removal motion.

In his ruling on this matter, Speaker Bagbin said after announcing the formation of the committee that “The evidence will be placed before the committee. The Minister will have the opportunity to defend himself.

“A report will be presented to the House, and we will debate that report.”
