Dr. Mark Assibey-Yeboah, a former MP for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), asserted that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will never make Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta quit his job.

Dr. Assibey-Yeboah claims that, in contrast to what certain NPP members, including the party’s lawmakers, have claimed, the president would not fire Ofori-Atta because he does not believe that he (Ofori-Atta) has failed.

The former NPP MP, Dr. Mark Assibey Yeboah stated that Ofori-Atta is also not going to quit because the policies he carried out were on behalf of the president and decisions made by the cabinet in an interview on Adom TV that GhanaWeb watched on Tuesday.

“The president says Ken is doing a fantastic job. He says he is doing an excellent job. He also never said he would fire him (Ofori-Atta) during the revolt by the NPP MPs, he told them to let him finish the IMF negotiations so that they could revisit the issue.

“… He (Ofori-Atta) is not going anywhere. He is not going to resign; why should he resign? The guy is doing an excellent job, according to the president.

“The finance minister represents the president. The other time I held one of the MPs saying that they told Ofori-Atta to reduce the E-Levy to 1.5 percent but he did not listen so he should be sacked. The budget is the president’s budget and the cabinet met to determine the E-levy rate. Is this a basis for Ofori-Atta to resign or be sacked,” Dr. Mark Assibey Yeboah said in Twi.
