Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta amidst his crucification preached words of innocence to calm nerves.
Speaking at the Parliament on his vote of censure yesterday 8th December 2022, he swayed the masses listening to his speech and preached innocence on the issues he described as “allegation against him by the minority”.
The Finance Minister said, “The Lord has given Ghanaians a spirit of courage, love and self discipline. We must pray for the holy spirit to strengthen us to love all our neighbours.”
Per his speech, no amount of words from him will satisfy the Minority Members of Parliament. “Even if I say I am innocent, they will not believe me and if I ask for proof and truth, they will not be able to answer that. So I have committed no crime.”
Parliament was set for the vote of censure which will remove Ken Ofori-Atta from office but the motion failed due to the walkout of Majority Leaders from the secret balloting meant to remove the Finance Minister from office.
The Minority MPs voted but their number was only 136 out of the two-third the constitution stated for a vote of censure.
