Alan Kyerematen blames economic hardship on Finance Minister


‘Movement for Change’ Leader and immediate-past Trade Minister, Alan Kyerematen, has stated reasons Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta is one to be held responsible for the current economic challenges of the country.

Mr. Kyeremanten, who resigned as Trade Minister earlier this year, in order to contest the NPP’s flagbearership election, subsequently resigned from the NPP to run as an independent candidate in the forthcoming 2024 general elections.

In an interview on UTV on Tuesday, September 26, Alan, also a former member of the Economic Management Team of the government for six years, through his position as Trade Minister, sought to absorb himself of blame from the current economic challenges of the country, but insisting that it is the finance minister who takes final decisions on economic matter.

“The Minister of Finance is the one who oversees the economy,” said Alan Kyerematen.

“He is in charge and he takes the final decision. I can only make contributions but he makes the final decision,” Alan said, as he rebuffed suggestions that as a member of the EMT, he should share in the blame

“I cannot take responsibility for decisions made by the finance minister. Is that what you are asking me to do?” he noted.
