Dismissal of Adu Boahen is meaningless unless it’s linked to Ofori-Atta’s resignation

Dismissal of Adu Boahen is meaningless unless it’s linked to Ofori-Atta’s resignation

The sacking of the Minister of State at the Finance Ministry in relation to alleged influence peddling and corruption, according to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Mpraeso, is insufficient if the substantive minister is not also sacked or forced to resign.

Davis Opoku Ansah believes that sacking Charles Adu Boahen is insufficient and that the Finance Ministry requires a complete overhaul.

In a Facebook post on Monday, the deputy ranking member of Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee said the data bankers should be removed from the Ministry, implying that people with ties to the financial services firm Databank who are now employed at the Finance Ministry should be fired.

“The dismissal of Charles Adu Boahen is meaningless unless it is linked to Ken Ofori-resignation Atta’s and the complete liberation of the finance ministry from data bankers,” he wrote.

Mr Charles Adu Boahen’s appointment has been terminated with immediate effect by President Akufo-Addo.

According to Eugene Arhin, Director of Communications at Jubilee House, the President made the decision after learning about the allegations leveled against the Minister in the TigerEye PI exposé “Galamsey Economy.”

“After speaking with Mr. Adu Boahen, the President decided to terminate his appointment,” the statement said.

Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has referred the case to the Special Prosecutor for additional investigation.

Mr. Adu Boahen was fired for what reason?

According to the documentary, Mr Adu Boahen told the undercover investigators that Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia only needs $200,000 tokens as an appearance fee before meeting with alleged businessmen.

The beleaguered Minister is also said to have stated that the Vice President would demand some positions from an investor in order for his siblings to gain his support and influence in establishing a business in Ghana.

“Do you mean things like appearance fees and stuff?” I mean, if you give him (the Vice President) some (USD) 200,000 or something as a token, as a thank you, as appreciation, that’s fine.

“He’s not really like that, he’s not really like that.” “All he needs to worry about in 2020 is his campaign money,” Charles Adu Boahen is said to have said.
Meanwhile, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has denied claims that he demanded $200,000 as an “appearance fee.”

In a Facebook post on Monday, he stated that he is not aware of any such transaction.

His “cherished asset,” he says, is his integrity, which he will not allow to be tarnished.
