Political Scientist, Professor Ransford Gyampo has appealed to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to sack Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta and save his image.

He argued that Ofori-Atta is not the only competent man in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to be the Finance Minister.

He said, “The President must back down on his argument for the continuous stay in office.

“You said you had the men. Is Ken Ofori-Atta the only competent man or there are others? I say there are others.

“He should do something drastically to save his own image otherwise he will go down in history as the worst president in the fourth republic,” he said on the Key Points on TV3 Saturday, October 29.

Some members of the Majority caucus on Tuesday, October 25 demanded the removal of the sector minister, Kenneth Nana Yaw Ofori-Atta, and the Minister of State at the Ministry, Charles Adu Boahen, as well as their deputies for the poor management of the country’s economy.

They threatened that they will have no business to do in Parliament for the government if this demand is not met.

A meeting was subsequently called later Tuesday evening by President Akufo-Addo, who appealed for some time for his embattled ministers especially as Ghana is negotiating a deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the 2023 budget is also being compiled.

The Majority Caucus later indicated it has agreed to accede to the President’s plea
