Former General Secretary for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, has told the President of Ghana that no one wants the job of Ghana’s Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in an interview in the Northern region, insisted that his appointees deserve commendation.
He indicated that he is aware of calls for a reshuffle, but he thinks it’s unnecessary.
The president indicated that the calls are coming from members of the opposition party and some jobless people in his party.
But speaking in an interview with Accra-based Kessben TV, Kwabena Agyei Agyepong told the president that no one wants Ofori-Atta’s job, but rather they seek the economic health of the country.
“Nobody is looking for Ken Ofori-Atta’s job. We are looking for the economic health of this country”.
He said he would continue to speak the truth to leadership.
“Some of us have to stand up and be counted. I will rather die speaking the truth than be populist because I’m a member of the NPP.”
