Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta To Be Summoned To Parliament To Answer For GH¢827 million missing oil cash

The minority is parliament is set to summon the finance minister, Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta to appear before the house to account for over Ghc800 million made from Ghana’s oil which the Government is unable to account for in its 2020 report

He is expected to appear before the house and answer questions over the findings from the Public Interest and Accountability committee over Government’s inability to account for over ghc800 million cash made from Ghana’s oil

Mr. Cassiel Ato Forson, minority’s spokesperson on finance is of the view that the finance ministry’s explanation for the ‘missing’ ghc800 million oil money is unsatisfactory and must be looked into

He said, “I agree with PIAC, that the ministry of finance must come properly in accounting for the 827 million Ghana cedis. It is not chicken money and this amount cannot be missing in their physical reporting”

“Mr Speaker, I urge the ministry of finance that in as much as they have provided the finance committee with some information, that information is not satisfactory to me, it is not satisfactory public interest and accountability committee of Government, and Mr Speaker for that matter we in this house should summon the minister responsible for finance before us to explain to us”
