The demands for the resignation of Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta have now received the support of the entire Majority Caucus, according to Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.

Eighty NPP MPs threatened to boycott government business if Mr. Ofori-Atta was not fired, which sparked the push for his dismissal.

After supporting the 80 NPP MPs’ calls, the minority in parliament submitted a motion for censure.


The censure motion has been accepted and placed on the table for the House to vote on.

But Mr. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has revealed that the whole NPP caucus is in favour of the president’s cousin being removed from office, days before the vote of censure against Ken Ofori Atta.

This was said by Mr. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu on November 3, 2022, during a press conference.


“Even though the matter originated with the 80+ MPs, the caucus meeting aligned with their viewpoint, making the 80+ MPs’ reason irrelevant. “We are currently having discussions about the entire caucus’ agenda,” he explained.

One of Ghana’s successful businesspeople approached the MPs to try and sway their vote, according to the Suame MP in an interview that aired on PM Express on Tuesday, November 1.

He informed Evans Mensah, “I have it on good information that some businessman came here and attempted to do something.”


The politician said that his party would look into the event during the news conference on Thursday.

We’ll look into whether or not the alleged attempt at bribery occurred, and if it did, we’ll determine the perpetrator’s motivation. Sometimes, these things come up.

“You may recall the situation involving the minister who was proposed to testify before the screening committee. There was a claim that he had tried to influence or bribe several individuals. “In the end, it proved to be an untruth—I won’t say a falsehood—but, “he added.


During this time, President Akufo-Addo has pleaded with the NPP MPs to support letting Ken Ofori-Atta hold onto his position until the IMF talks are complete and the 2023 budget statement is made.

Shortly after they convened a press conference to demand the dismissal of Mr. Ofori-Atta, he made this appeal during a meeting with the MPs in Jubilee House.
