Politics of Monday, 12 February 2018Source: mynewsgh.comNDC MPs are plotting Ken Ofori-Atta’s downfall - Ken AgyapongFinance Minister, Ken Ofori AttaThe outspoken New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central in the Central Region Kennedy Agyapong has revealed that recent attacks on the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta are a deliberate move by the Minority MPs to tarnish his image in order to spite President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. He explained that the Minority MPs see the Finance Minister as a big threat because he is exposing their fishy deals at the Finance Ministry and have therefore had series of meetings to use the media to bring him down. While condemning the said MPs for attacking the Finance Minister since their hands are not clean, Mr Agyapong also took swipe at his own government for failing to deal with corrupt former appointees of the Mahama administration. He argued that the delay in prosecuting the corrupt former appointees is what has emboldened them to launch a scathing attack on the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta. “These people who have been very wicked to the people of this country yet have the nerves to attack Ken Ofori-Atta,” he said.
