NDC member of Parliament, Isaac Adongo says calls for the finance Minister dismissal long overdue, calling his stewardship as incompetent.
The Member of Finance Committee in Parliament also welcomed calls by some members of the Majority caucus in Parliament for the removal of Minister of State at the Ministry, Charles Adu Boahen.
According to him, the two gentlemen has not been beneficial to Ghana but rather have gained at the expense of the state.
“Both the Finance Minister and the Minister of State at the Finance Ministry have been incompetent. The two have opened their businesses to the detriment of the management of the state’s finances.”
Isaac Adongo has also taken a swipe at the Governor of the Bank of Ghana for his failure to appear before parliament on several occasions.
“This is a man who has failed to come to Parliament for the past 3 years in violation of his own law. He was supposed to report to us every 6 months to update us on our forex developments, but does not show up. And he goes around calling others for meetings. He should have resigned by now.”
“Exchange rates do not respond to meetings. They have a lot to do with the lack of liquidity in the market. The exchange rate we have now is a result of the incompetence we are seeing.”
The Bolgatanga Central legislator shared the view that Mark Assibey Yeboah, a former member of Parliament is the best fit to head the Finance Ministry.
“Ken was never in competition when it comes to competence. Everyone knows Mark Assibey Yeboah is an excellent brain. He has no business interest. Why such a person is sitting at home, beats my imagination.”
