A youth activist and a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Emmanuel Atanga has urged Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta to make it easy for the president to reshuffle his ministers by resigning.
For him, the Finance Minister is the worst performing minister and his continuous stay in office makes it difficult for the President, his cousin to sack or reshuffle him.
‘‘ We have failed to manage our cedi, we have failed to manage our economy, so we are running to the IMF, what was the message we got from the finance minister, we are not going to the IMF , we are a proud nation etc. but we are now headed there, isn’t this a failure and inconsistencies‘’
‘‘He is part of a team going to negotiate on behalf of Ghana, the president if finding it difficult to reshuffle or sack ken because they are blood and he doesn’t want to bring shame to him’’
‘‘Ken must resign to save his brother the shame, he and his deputies at the ministry must resign. The president has a headache because of Ken when ken resigns Nana will find it easy to reshuffle or sack other non-performing ministers’’
The NDC Ashanti Regional deputy youth organizer hopeful is of the view that Nana Addo really needs help, but is only adamant because of partisan politics and the backlash he will get as he has failed Ghanaians.
‘‘Now the focus shouldn’t be about just his minister, he really needs help, that is why former president Mahama for some time now has been calling for a consensus because Ghana needs to be saved’’
