Ofori-Atta to be vetted today

Finance Minister-designate Ken Ofori-Atta will appear before the Appointments Committee of Parliament today.

Ofori-Atta was originally scheduled for vetting on March 8 but, had to be postponed due to ill-health following post-COVID-19 recovery complications.

He spent about 30 days at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, USA, where he received specialised treatment for post-COVID-19 complications.

As a result, the 2021 Budget Statement of government was presented by Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Leader of Government Business in Parliament.

Prior to his return, Mr Ofori-Atta during a virtual post-budget forum expressed gratitude to Ghanaians for an improving health condition attributing his recovery to the grace of God and continuous prayers from Ghanaians.

The vetting is expected to be dominated by issues relating to the financial sector cleanup which took place under the watch of Ofori-Atta during the first term of President Akufo-Addo.
