I’m innocent and committed no crime — Ken Ofori-Atta

His actions follow the censure motion that was brought against him failing due to the exit of the Parliamentary Majority.

Seven claims were brought against the minister by the Minority MPs, including extravagant spending, conflicts of interest, financial irresponsibility that caused the Ghana cedi to plunge, and egregious economic mismanagement.

Ad hoc committee made up of eight people from both sides of the house was formed to investigate the motion.

Ken Ofori-Atta is charged with illegally withdrawing money from the Consolidated Fund, purportedly to build the President’s National Cathedral.

The legislators claimed he misrepresented economic statistics to the Parliament “deliberately” and “dishonestly” and made “illegal” payments of oil earnings into offshore accounts.

Further, the Minister has been charged with fiscal irresponsibility that contributed to the collapse of the Ghana cedi, the world’s worst performing currency at the moment, as well as alarming incompetence and terrifying ineptitude that caused the collapse of the Ghanaian economy and an excruciating crisis in the cost of living.

Ofori-Atta is the president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-cousin, Addo’s who has historically protected the latter from legislative oversight.

The Minister declared that he is not to be held accountable for the current economic situation after the censure report was presented.

They won’t believe me if I claim to be innocent, he said.

“And they won’t be able to deliver the truth and proof if I ask for them. I haven’t done anything wrong, he declared.
