Minster for Monitoring and Evaluation and a member of the Finance Committee, Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei has urged the media to focus on the views of the Finance Committee, as they gather information leading to the collapse of the seven indigenous banks.

According to the Minister divergent views expressed by some members of the Finance Committee should not be the main focus but rather the collective views of the Finance Committee.

He made this remarks when the former Deputy Minaister of Energy and a Member of the Finance Committee, John Jinapor in an earlier interview with Journalists said the governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG) was evasive with the questions that were pose to him.

Dr. Akoto Osei pointed out that John Jinapor was late to the Committee meeting and issue that he raised had already been answered by the Governor, Dr. Anderson.

“The committee was satisfied with the answers provided by the Governor of the Bank of Ghana, we would call people back when we need more information that is how the committee operates all the time what we are doing is not new”, he lamented.

Chairman of the Finance Committee also added that if the need be that going forward there should be a full scale public hearing, they must be prepared to attend same, he said.
