"Sack Ofori Atta without delay before he collapses Ghana’s economy completely'' – Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has called for Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta to be fired by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. 

Mr Mahama wants a new cabinet with "fresh minds." 

President Obama says that the Finance Minister has failed since taking office in 2017. 

Mr Mahama said that the Finance Minister and the Economic Management Team (EMT) have thrown Ghana into an economic crisis and have hurt the people at an NDC-organized demonstration headlined "Ghana at a Crossroads" on May 1, 2022. 

It is difficult for the Minister of Finance to keep his job. 

Mr Mahama encouraged President Akufo-Addo to remove Finance Minister Mahama immediately. 

On the other hand, he chastised EMT leader Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia for throwing the country into debt while acting as an economic messiah. 

"Ghana's economy is one of the worst managed in the world." It is marked by unsustainable public debt as a result of an enormous budget deficit, skyrocketing inflation, a rapidly depreciating currency, spiraling business and living costs, widespread corruption, violations of civil and human rights, and a general loss of investor confidence. 

Mr Mahama stated that Dr. Bawumia, the current chairman of the Economic Management Team (EMT), has clearly fallen from his ivory tower as a self-proclaimed economic messiah to a poster boy.
