Bagbin Summons Ken Ofori-Atta To Account For Covid-19 Expenditure | Politics

Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Bagbin, has asked the Finance Minister to appear before the House and account for the COVID-19 expenditure.

This comes on the back of a motion moved by the Chairman of the Finance Committee, Kweku Kwarteng for the approval of €75 million for the Covid-19 health response project.

This motion was met with strong resistance from the Minority especially as there have been previous calls for government to account for the COVID-19 Funds and it has been turned down.

The Speaker intervening directed that the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta “appear before this House and account for all the monies that have been approved for the utilisation of Covid-19 management”.

“It is only then that this motion would be expressed on the floor again to approve or disapprove . . . people of Ghana have been blaming the executive arm of government for some of these things, but I think it is Parliament that should be blamed. We have all it takes to make sure the right thing is done so it is Parliament that is weak,” he added.
