‘Telling me to resign is like telling a father to leave his children in difficult times; I’ll stay’ — Ken Ofori-Atta
“No matter what we do, we will NOT be going to the IMF,” he declared. Despite our differences, we are one nation. We’ve got the means to do it. We’ve got the resources. Joshua and Caleb are our names. Pay no attention to what the Pharisees and Sadducees are saying about the International Monetary Fund (IMF). “We’ve got the guys!”
Ken Ofori-statements, Atta’s which have infuriated the majority of Ghanaians and led to calls for his resignation when the government ultimately performed a U-turn in favor of an international bailout, are summarized as follows:
Mr. Ken Ofori Atta, on the other hand, says Today, July 16, during the NPP’s national delegate conference at the Accra Sports Stadium, he rejected those claims.
Resigning now, in his opinion, is like to a parent fleeing from his children during a moment of crisis.
It’s like ordering a father to leave his children in trouble: “Telling me to resign is like telling a father to leave his children.”
He has no plans to leave until the mess is fixed and Ghanaian living standards return to their pre-crisis levels.
The Finance Minister stated, “I will stay and make sure the issues are fixed.”
