1. Between 1997 and September 2001, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor was the Governor for the Bank of Ghana.

(a) Unibank owned by Dr. Kwabena Duffuor never transacted any businesses either for or with the Rawlings Government between July 1997- September 2001?

(b). Unibank never lead a bond issuance on behalf of the National Democratic Congress ( NDC)Government?

(c). Dr. Kwabena Duffuor did not play any role or influence the banking licence of Unibank when he was the Governor of the Bank of Ghana?

2. Between 2009-2012, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor was the Minister of Finance.

During this period, UniCredit Ghana Limited formerly known as Kantamanto Savings and Loans Company Limited was officially launched on October 2009 when the owner Dr. Kwabena Duffuor was the Finance Minister.

10. Can Ato Forson as a former Deputy Minister of Finance confirm to Ghanaians who were the Book Runners for the $1 billion bond issued each in 2013, 2014 and 2015. The most “stupid bond” ever issued with high interest rates on the debts rising from 7.9% in 2013 to 10.75% in October 2015.

Sadly, these men who are shouting at the rooftop know the truth but for their desperation to form the next Government coupled with their desperation for political power they will do anything and everything to discredit the current administration with the hope that it will inure to their advantage, unfortunately that’s were we’ve gotten to as a Country.

Partisan Politics based on empty hatred is disastrous for the advancement of Ghana.

It is important that Ken Ofori-Atta clears his name and discredit the false allegations levelled against him by the Minority in Parliament for the sake of Posterity..
