Why is Adu Boahen Being Fired Now? Mensah Thompson Quizzes



Mensah Thompson, executive director of the Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA), has stated that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo does not deserve praise for firing Charles Adu Boahen, who happens to be the minister of state responsible for finance.

According to him, despite pleas from many Ghanaians, including members of Akufo-own Addo’s party, the New Patriotic Party, the president should have fired Adu Boahen long ago but instead did not (NPP).

Mensah Thompson said in a Joy News interview that Adu Boahen was facing more serious accusations of conflict of interest than the alleged crime detailed in the Anas exposé.

“Charles Adu Boahen should have been fired long ago. And so, why now? Because there were even more serious allegations of conflict of interest, where Charles Adu Boahene has been accused of using his company, Black Star Holdings, as frontrunners and bookrunners for government bonds, making huge commissions in return.

“Those allegations are more serious than the $200,000 he was collecting in Dubai because that borders on the integrity of the office.

And so today, the president said he is sacking him. When 80 MPs were crying that he should sack him, the president said, I won’t barge… There is nothing to be happy about,” he emphasized.

Meanwhile, he added that: “The sacking of Charles Adu Boahen unless linked up with the sacking of Ken Ofori-Atta and the total liberation of the Finance Ministry from data bankers. That is only when we shall be satisfied.”
