Minister Of Finance Ask For More Time To Accounts For Prez's Recent Trip

Minister for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, appeared yesterday in Parliament to answer the presidents recent cost on the trips after the Defence Minister, Dominic Ntifiwl responded to the first part on the airworthiness on Wednesday, 16 June 2021 but unfortunately, he has requested more time from Parliament to provide a response to the urgent question on the cost of President Akufo-Addo’s recent trips to France, Belgium, and South Africa, despite being notified over two weeks ago.

But the question directed at the Finance Minister by North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, was taken off the order paper for the day.

Mr Ablakwa who seemed surprised posted on his social media pages that the Minister has requested more time to answer his question.

“The Minister for Finance has had ample notice of my question. He has had more than two weeks to prepare for this question but what we know for certain is that our resolve to pursue this matter is unwavering. We will continue with strong determination in the interest of accountability, in the interest of good governance, and in the interest of protecting the public purse.”
