I WOULD’VE SACKED OFORI-ATTA BY NOW IF I WERE AKUFO ADDO – Apraku

Dr. Konadu Apraku, a two-time candidate for the NPP’s flag, claims that if he had been elected president, he would have fired Ken Ofori-Atta, the finance minister.

He claimed he would have listened to the irate NPP lawmakers who have been calling for the Finance Minister’s dismissal due to the current financial crisis.

After the NPP MPs pressured the President to fire Mr. Ofori-Atta for mismanaging the economy in October 2022, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has failed to do so.

In a meeting with the MPs, the President bargained with them to buy him some time to respond to their demands.

Speaking in an interview with state broadcaster, GTV on Monday, Dr. Apraku said, “If I were the President [Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo], I would have listened to the MPs and sacked Ofori-Atta”.

He remarked that before removing the Finance Minister, the President must consider the opinions of the NPP MPs and the general public.

“In politics, you have to be sensitive to public opinion. Sometimes, it may not be the truth, but that is the sentiments, and the sentiments of the people need to be examined, and acted upon if it is possible. It’s a great deal for the NPP MPs to come out there to say they don’t want our Finance Minister, their own Finance Minister that they have worked with in the past,” Dr. Apraku stated.

He added, “in democracy, we have to be sensitive to the people. Lack of action exacerbates the problem, so you cut it off and cut your losses and I would have cut my losses and said please you have done enough, the environment is hostile to you so go. I would have changed him”.
