Isaac Adongo, the Bolgatanga Central MP, appears to have had enough of the Finance Minister’s frequent biblical quotations at every national address.
Ken Ofori-Atta appeared before Parliament on Thursday, February 16th, 2023, to brief the parliament on the government’s Domestic Debt Exchange Program, and, as has been customary, he closed his address with a citation from the Bible.
Mr. Isaac Adongo questioned the Finance Minister’s moral standing in hurling the word of God at Ghanaians while taking their hard-earned money.
“As a country, we are not angry enough,” he says. This cannot happen to anyone. You’re here, reading this boring and unimpressive statement to us, and yet you’re taking our money.
“This is not a joke; you’re even quoting the Bible. Which Bible are you quoting? Quoting the Bible and taking our money? “You’re denying the poor pensioner his/her money and still quoting the Bible?” he questioned.
The Bolgatanga Central legislator then demanded that the Finance Minister resign immediately for mismanaging the economy.
“Resign! “Resign right now here in your statement to Parliament,” he said emphatically.
