Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta has apologized to the people of Ghana for the current economic crises the country is faced with.

Mr. Ofori-Atta coming before the ad hoc committee hearing the censure motion brought against him by the Minority Caucus in Parliament on 18th November, 2022 in his preliminary statement he said everything they have sought to do was aimed at making the lives of the people better.

“Since he said everything we have sought to do was aimed at making the lives of the people better”.

“We have been focused on this vision to improve lives, and in the first four years our efforts were leading to the realization of the vision. Today, I acknowledged that our economy is facing difficulties and the people of Ghana are enduring hardship”.

He said being the person put in charge of the economy; he feels the pain personally, professionally and in his soul.

“I see and feel the terrible impact of rising prices of goods and services on the lives and livelihoods of ordinary Ghanaians; I feel the stress of running a business, but it is the strive and perseverance of the Ghanaian people that inspire me and my colleagues in government every morning and to press on. That is what gives me the strength to press on to find solutions and relieve for Ghana’s mirage of problems.
