Former Chief Executive Officer of Ghana's Volta River Authority Charles Wereko-Brobby has called for the head of Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta.
Mr Wereko-Brobby says the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta has not acted appropriately in the controversial Agyapa Royals agreement and that accounted for the brouhaha.
He said the whole deal has been fraudulent and called on the government to halt the deal restart it after the 2020 elections.
Mr Wereko-Bobby urged President Akufo-Addo to appoint a new Finance Minister to protect the public purse should he win 2020 elections.
The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has raised red flags against the Agyapa Royalties deal.
In his corruption risk assessment, Mr. Amidu argued that consultations over the deal were not comprehensive and innovative enough.
He further disclosed that the selection and appointment of advisors for the agreement did not meet the “fundamentals of probity, transparency, and accountability.”
Amidu also accused the Finance Ministry of awarding the transaction advisors deal to “surrogates” of the Ministry.
Meanwhile, the Finance Minister is set to re-submit the agreement in Parliament following an order by the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
