Central Regional Communications Director of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs, is advocating the removal of Seth Emmanuel Terkper, a Chartered Accountant and the Minister for Finance and Economic Planning in Mahama’s administration.
According to Allotey Jacobs, the Finance Minister has proven beyond doubt that, despite his qualifications, he is incapable of steering the affairs of the Ministry assigned to him by President John Dramani Mahama.
He noted that Ghana’s economic woes must be blamed on Seth Terkper since he has done nothing to revamp the economy.
“Looking at the situation now, Seth Terkper cannot handle the Finance Ministry…I am telling you the gospel truth. He cannot help. The work is too big for him,” he lamented.
Speaking on PEACE FM’s Kokrokoo programme, Allotey Jacobs hinted that, “in case the NDC lose power, then Seth Terkper should be blamed because he is not helping the government to pursue the Better Ghana Agenda.”
“Ghanaians are suffering and he [Seth Terkper] must do something or the President must fire him. He has become a Judas in the party [NDC]. His policies will determine our [NDC] victory or failure in 2016. Seth Terkper is our problem now,” he screamed.
