Ghana’s Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta survived a vote of no confidence in parliament on Thursday after the opposition accused him of conflict of interest and incompetence in managing the economy. The country is battling its worst cost of living crisis that has seen inflation rise to 40%. Meanwhile the country’s Finance Minister has denied any wrongdoing, and has attributed the crisis to the combined impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. In parliament on Thursday, only 136 opposition MPs voted for the motion of no confidence after the majority MPs staged a walkout ahead of the vote.
