Mr Ofori-Atta is likely to be asked questions about the controversial Agyapa deal.

One question that many will be looking out for is why Databank pulled out of Agyapa deal as transaction advisors.

Databank explained in the letter that they arrived at this decision following attacks on its reputation by political actors due to the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta’s association with Databank, a company he co-founded.
