'You do nothing while Ofori-Atta makes a fortune of our loans leaving us to suffer' — KKD blasts Parliament

Headlines 'You do nothing while Ofori-Atta makes a fortune of our loans leaving us to suffer' — KKD blasts Parliament
AUG 18, 2022 LISTEN

Kwasi Kyei Darkwah, popularly known as KKD, a veteran Ghanaian broadcaster has taken a swipe at Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta and Parliamentarians for their "wickedness."

According to him, Ken Ofori-Atta’s Databank is the sole transaction advisor for all loans Ghana takes.

This KKD bemoaned while speaking on Accra-based GTV, monitored by Modernghana News that the Minister, through his company, has been receiving commissions from loans Ghana takes, making him richer.

“I read a report yesterday that broke my heart. I saw how Ghana owes. I also found that apparently, the Minister of Finance’s company or former company is a transaction advisor to the monies we borrow. So, as Ghana gets poorer, the Minister of Finance’s company or former company gets richer," he said.

He chastised parliament for failing to hold Ofori-Atta to reverse the trend.

“Parliament, you must be ashamed of yourself. You have failed the people of Ghana because I don't think from the time of Nkrumah to date, whoever is the minister for finance should be benefiting every time our country goes to borrow money. Is that what happened?" he questioned.

He continued, “parliament thinks it is okay? So whoever wins the next election will also set up their own companies and be the transactional advisors when we go and take a loan. What is wrong with us as a people? So the person's motive for even going for a loan for me now is not clear because every time we take a loan their company makes money. Does this make sense to us as a people?”
