Speaker to refer motion of censure against Ofori-Atta to ad hoc committee

The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin has given indication that he will refer the censure motion moved by the Minority to have Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta removed from office to an ad hoc committee for consideration.

He added that at the committee level, evidence at the Minority’s disposal would be presented for discussion.

According to Mr. Bagbin, the Finance Minister will be given the ample opportunity to defend himself.

He stated that the Minister in question is also entitled to appear before the committee with a counsel.

“What I can do at this time is to allow the motion to be seconded and I will give opportunity for it to be responded to by our standing orders which I can interpret. The matter will be referred to an ad hoc committee to be investigated,” he said.

The Speaker noted that after the process, a report will be submitted before the House for a decision to be taken.

On October 25, 2022, the Minority in Parliament filed a censure motion against the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.
