Finance Minister-designate will face Parliament’s Appointments Committee on March 8, 2021.
The Finance Minister-designate had to be flown out of the country on February 14 to the United States of America to seek medical attention after he developed some complications after recovering from COVID-19.
A statement from the Finance Ministry then said “After recovering from COVID-19 last December, Mr Ofori-Atta has had medical complications, which doctors advise require further interventions not currently available in Ghana,” a statement from the Ministry of Finance said on Valentine’s Day.
“The Ministry of Finance wishes to inform the general public and stakeholders that Mr Ken Ofori-Atta, the Representative of the President at the Ministry of Finance and Minister-designate of Finance, will travel to the United States of America today, for a special medical review.
“The leadership of Parliament has been duly notified for a new date to be fixed upon his return,” the statement noted.
Meanwhile, Parliament’s Appointments Committee has rescheduled vetting for Tuesday February 23, 2021 to enable the Chairman of the Committee to submit a report on Ministers-designate that have been vetted so far.
