Ofori-Atta vote of censure committee to submit report on Tuesday

The eight-member ad-hoc committee probing the censure motion against the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta is expected to present its report to the plenary on Tuesday, November 22, 2022.

This follows its conclusion of public hearing into allegations levelled as the basis for the censure motion against the Finance Minister last Friday.

In his concluding remarks, a Co-Chair of the committee, Dr. Dominic Ayine announced plans to seek an extension of time from the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin to finalize its report.

“We will apply to the Speaker for an extension of time to be able to file our report and the purpose of the report will simply be to continue the debate on the motion for the vote of censure and the report will be laid in Parliament hopefully on Tuesday.”

KT Hammond, another co-chair, announced that the committee would have to present a draft copy of the report to the Finance Minister to ensure that his responses are properly captured before the full report is tabled before Parliament for debate.

Seven allegations have been levelled against the Finance Minister by the Minority in Parliament, calling for his removal from office.

The Minister is accused of conflict of interest, gross mismanagement, recklessness of the economy among others.

The committee was given seven days by the Speaker to probe the censure of motion, which ended today.

The Committee was set up by the Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin, chaired by Dominic Ayine and K.T Hammond.

The fate of the Finance Minister will be known after the committee had presented its report to the Speaker, as to whether the censure of vote will go in his favour or otherwise.
