Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa Warns of “Belated Reshuffle” Amidst Scandal Allegations


Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has issued a stern warning regarding the timing of the government’s proposed reshuffle, likening it to an action taken “after the ship has sunk and after the horses have bolted.” The outspoken MP’s remarks come amidst mounting scrutiny and allegations of corruption surrounding key figures within the administration.

In a scathing indictment of Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, Hon. Ablakwa accused him of involvement in several controversial transactions, including an alleged illegal withdrawal of US$58 million for the construction of President Akufo-Addo’s proposed US$450 million cathedral. Additionally, he referenced a purported US$100 million dubious Small and Medium Enterprises (SML) contract and other “atrocities” that he contends will warrant accountability.

The timing of Hon. Ablakwa’s comments coincides with renewed calls for transparency and accountability within the government, as citizens demand answers regarding alleged financial improprieties and mismanagement. The MP’s assertion that “nothing will change in the next 9 months” underscores skepticism regarding the government’s willingness to address these issues adequately.

The allegations leveled against Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta and the broader concerns raised by Hon. Ablakwa highlight the importance of accountability and oversight in governance. As Ghana prepares for future elections, the electorate is increasingly focused on holding public officials to account and ensuring that the principles of integrity and ethical conduct are upheld.

As the political landscape evolves and allegations of misconduct persist, the call for a “day of reckoning” serves as a stark reminder of the imperative of justice and transparency in safeguarding the nation’s democratic values. With the upcoming reshuffle and ongoing investigations into alleged wrongdoing, Ghana stands at a crossroads, where the decisions and actions of its leaders will shape the trajectory of its future.
