‘I Don’t Take Salary Or Per Diem’ – Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta Discloses During Vetting
Ken Ofori-Atta, Finance Minister designate has revealed that since his assumption into office as the Finance Minister, he has never taken salary.
The Finance Minister designate made this shocking comments during his vetting before the Appointments Committee in Parliament on Thursday.
Mr Ofori-Atta also said another entitlement he has not drawn as a Minister is per diem.
“I do not take a salary, I do not take a per diem, so those are not the objectives that I come with,” he told the Appointments Committee.
The delay in the Finance Minister-designate’s vetting was due to a trip to the United States of America for treatment following complications after he recovered from Covid-19 earlier.
In his stead, the 2021 Budget statement of government was presented by Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu on March 12.
