New Patriotic Party (NPP) Members of Parliament pushing for the resignation of Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta are expected to meet this week to make fresh demands for him to go.
The MPs, numbering about 80, say the Finance Minister must leave following the successful negotiation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) bailout.

Ghana received on Friday, May 19, the first tranche of $600 million of the IMF’s $3 billion three-year extended credit support.
One of the MPs, Eugene Boakye Antwi (MP for Subin), says President Akufo-Addo must go by his promise to let Ken Ofori-Atta go.
“My job is to expose the failings I think are happening at the Ministry of Finance… Principle and conviction alone should make you resign,” Eugene Antwi said.
