The Member of Parliament for Asawase, Muntaka Mubarak has said the Minority will file a motion for impeachment against President Akufo-Addo should he fail to remove Ken Ofori-Atta as the Finance Minister after the vote of censure.
Speaking on JoyNews about the vote of censure expected to take place Thursday, November 10, Muntaka Mubarak indicated that should Ken Ofori-Atta be maintained, it will mean President Akufo-Addo is the problem of the country’s financial woes and not the Finance Minister.
“Let’s pray tomorrow we get two-thirds and then President Nana Addo says that ‘o, even though two-thirds of you have said that I should remove him I’m not removing him’, I can assure you, the next day we’ll file another process to remove the President from office.
“That means now the problem of the country has moved from the Finance Minister to the President himself. So now we’ll move the heat from the Minister you can’t remove to you yourself and then we’ll start the process. And interestingly it’s the same two-thirds that you’ll need to remove the President. So if he won’t remove the Minister then he will have to be removed,” he said.
The Minority Chief Whip was confident the vote of censure against the Finance Minister will be successful.
“One thing I can assure you is that this is a game of politics, if we can get two-thirds to remove the Minister for Nana Addo, you can be rest assured that that same two-thirds will be ready to remove the President.
“Because if that two-thirds will not remove the President, they will not remove his Minister especially as he has publicly said he’s supporting him, he’s giving him all the praises and what have you, if we succeed by the grace of God and we get the two-thirds and the President doesn’t act, that two-thirds will remove the President,” he added..
