‘God save the Trade Ministry’ – Okudzeto Ablakwa on Finance Minister’s caretaker appointment

The Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu Constituency voiced worry about the Finance Minister’s nomination as caretaker of the Ministry of Trade and Industry.

A document in the MP’s hands suggests that Ken Ofori-Atta and his spouse are involved in some shady dealings with the National Cathedral project, according to the MP.

“Fresh Cathedral records in my possession demonstrate that Enterprise Insurance, a company Ken Ofori-Atta is intimately involved with and on whose board his wife serves, was given a sweetheart deal to insure the entire cathedral construction site,” he claimed.

This, according to the MP, is cause for concern.

Mr Ablakwa stated on his social media page on Friday that with Ofori-new Atta’s appointment, only God can preserve the Trade Ministry.

“May God protect the Trade Ministry,” he prayed.

The appointment of the North Tongu MP comes just hours after a statement from the President’s office revealed that Mr Ofori-Atta will serve as interim minister of Trade and Industry until a permanent replacement is found.

The selection of the Finance Minister as caretaker comes after the departure of Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen on Thursday.

The individual known as ‘Alan Cash’ has long been rumored to be planning a run for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearership in the 2024 general election.

Some argue that his resignation is to give him ample time to pursue his presidential ambition.
