Ofori-Atta grabs new appointment in government – Report

Report indicates that Ghana’s Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta has landed himself a new job in government.

Contrary to reports suggesting the finance minister has been sacked by the president, he is reported to be enjoying a new role at the presidency.

Many Ghanaians expressed satisfaction to the president for terminating the appointment of the Finance Minister. Many have tagged him as a failure for leading Ghana to the International Monetary Fund.

The termination of Ofori-Atta’s appointment as finance minister became the single most talked about aspect of the government shakeup.

Hours on, even as Ofori-Atta remained in the trends, it was reported that the president’s cousin had been lined up for another appointment.

The former Finance Minister would serve as the senior presidential advisor on the economy, according to Asaase Radio. He would specifically be in charge of international investments and capital markets.

That news triggered a new wave of reactions, with some Twitter users positing that the new job means Ofori-Atta remains a player in Ghana’s economic management affairs.

“He has retired from domestic finance and economics. He’s taking his game global,” Prof H Kwesi Prempeh of CDD-Ghana wrote on Facebook.

“Ken Ofori Atta is not gone o, he’s to be appointed Presidential Advisor on Economy,” another X user tweeted.
