The censure committee request more time to file the report

This was revealed by the committee’s co-chairman, Dominic Ayine, after the committee’s Friday, November 18, 2022, hearings came to an end following hours of questioning the finance minister.

He declared, “Today is the last day that Mr. Speaker has granted us; perhaps, we will ask him for an extension of time so that we may file our report the following week. The report’s sole aim is to carry on the discussion of the motion for a vote of censure. And the report will hopefully be presented to Parliament on Tuesday of next week.”

The Minority in Parliament has called for the resignation of Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta after making seven complaints against him.

Among other things, the Minister is charged with conflict of interest, egregious mismanagement, and economic irresponsibility.

The Speaker gave the committee seven days to look into the censure resolution; those seven days concluded on Friday, November 18.

After the committee presented its report to the Speaker, the Finance Minister still doesn’t know whether the vote to censure him will be in his favor or not.
