25 March 2021
Mr Courage Martey, a Senior Researcher at the Databank has said he expects issues of the financial sector clean up to dominate the vetting of Finance Minister-designate Ken Ofori-Atta today Thursday March 25.
Mr Martey told TV3’s Etornam Sey ahead of the vetting that he will be very surprised if these issues do not dominate the screening.
“Issue of the financial sector clean up will live with us for a very long time and so I will be surprised if they don’t come up,” he said.
The Minister of Finance in President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s first term was scheduled to be vetted on Tuesday, February 16 but was taken ill.
He had to be flown to the US, where he received treatment for post-Covid-19 complications.
He returned home on Sunday, March 21.
A statement from the Public Affairs Department of Parliament announced that the Committee will hold its public hearing to consider Mr Ofori-Atta as Minister of Finance.
It said attendance will be strictly by invitation with all Covid-19 protocols to be adhered to.
