Focus on the collective views of the Finance Committees – Dr Akoto


Member of Parliament for Old Tafo and a member of the Finance Committee, Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei, has urged the media to focus on the collective views and contributions of the Finance Committee, as they gather information leading to the collapse of the seven indigenous banks.


According to Dr. Akoto Osei, divergent views expressed by some members of the Finance Committee in the media should not be the main focus but rather, the collective views of the Committee on the subject matter, which makes the decision of the committee.

The Old Tafo Member of Parliament who doubles as the Minster for Monitoring and Evaluation indicated that some members of the committee have their own reservations and objections which, are not solely the collective idea of the committee.

His remarks follow previous comments made by the former Deputy Minister of Energy and a Member of the Finance Committee, Mr. John Jinapor in an earlier interview with Journalists, when he (Mr. Jinapor) said that the Governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG) was evasive with the questions that were posed to him.

Speaking to a group of journalists in Parliament Dr. Akoto Osei pointed out that Mr.Jinapor was late to the Committee meeting and the issue raised by him had already been answered by the Governor of BoG, Dr. Anderson.

Mr. Akoto Osei revealed that the committee may have another sitting to probe further due to other issues that came up during the hearing.

“The committee was satisfied with the answers provided by the Governor of the Bank of Ghana. We would call back other authorities or individuals when we need more information. That is how the committee operates all the time. The committee is not engaging in any new thing”, he explained.
