NDC presents Finance Minister with three daggers; resign, get sacked, face court

The Minority in Parliament has repeated an 11-month old demand for the Finance minister to resign because of allegations of conflict of interest in the raising of $2.5bn on the international market.

Led by their leader Haruna Iddrisu, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) MPs point to a CHRAJ report as an endorsement of their accusations first made in April 2017.

The report pointed out that the Finance minister violated constitutional, statutory, regulations and guidelines when he issued the $2.5bn bond, the MPs claim.

The statement from the Minority explained each of the breaches including Section 56 of the Public Financial Management Act 2016 and a constitutional breach of Article 181 of the1992 constitution.
