The Finance Minister-designate, Mr. Ken Ofori Atta enters day two of his vetting as he’s the only nominee left on the list of ministers that President Akufo Addo submitted to Parliament on January 21, 2021.

It’s over two weeks after he was initially scheduled to be vetted and now he took his turn before the Appointment Committee of Parliament yesterday and he’s expected to be on the seat today.

Yesterday, he was questioned on the subject of the newly introduced taxes and he answered that Ghanaians need to share its burden of the times so they can share its reward later.

Talking about the controversial Agyapa deal he stated that he was not allowed to review the Special Prosecutor’s report on Agyapa Royalties but his team has done nothing with regards to the deal.

Ken Ofori-Atta got his vetting postpone as he had to travel to the U.S to seek further medical care after recovering from Covid-19 hence it was rescheduled to March 8, 2021, but he returned on Monday, March 22, 2021
