Ghana’s Finance Minister-designate Ken Ofori-Atta has revealed that he has never taken salary since his assumption of office for Minister of Finance ways back in 2017.

Ken Ofori-Atta made these statements during his vetting before the Appointments Committee in Parliament on Thursday, 25th March, 2021.

He also revealed that he has never taken a per diem throughout his work at the finance ministry.

“I do not take a salary, I do not take a per diem, so those are not the objectives that I come with,” he said on Thursday.

He was responding to a question posed by North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa about his relationship with private firms working closely with many government departments and agencies.



The MP was of the view that the situation fuels a certain narrative which insinuates that undue advantage could be given to his cronies.

But Mr Ofori-Atta explained that his commitment to improving the state of the country’s public sector keeps him going even without financial considerations.

The Minister-designate believes the need to see a more vibrant public sector is an innate objective, a call he is not willing to sacrifice at the altar of financial gains.

“I suspect you know that the issue of public service is one that really has been with the family for a long time and I came into it with that aspect,” he added.
