The Minister of State at the Finance Ministry, Charles Adu Boahen has not resigned, the Ministry of Finance has clarified.

"Rumours about the Honourable Minister of State tendering in his resignation are untrue, and should be disregarded," the Ministry said in a statement.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa had alleged that Adu Boahen had tendered in his resignation but President Akufo-Addo was refusing the resignation. 

According to Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Adu Boahen informed the President of his decision but the President rejected same. 

He made the allegation in a tweet on Thursday, October 27, 2022.


To him, "the President continues to downplay the profound economic crisis created by his abysmal leadership", he added to the allegation in a tweet on Thursday, October 27, 2022.

Ablakwa's allegation followed a call by some members of the New Patriotic Party majority caucus in Parliament for President Akufo-Addo to remove Charles Adu Boahen and the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta from office.

President Akufo-Addo in a meeting with the NPP MPs asked them to take into consideration the timing for their call and the impact on the IMF deal, the preparation of the 2023 Budget and the passage of the Appropriations Bill.

The MPs have since softened their stance and agreed for the ministers to stay in office and continue with the IMF deal and the budget processes.
