birthday gift from the House which fell on the same day.

“I commend Parliament for the bi-partisan consensus

manner with which it did its work and I’m grateful to the

House for giving me a good birthday present with the

approval of the Minister on my birthday,” he said.

President Akufo-Addo disclosed this at the swearing-in of

Mr Ofori-Atta on Tuesday, March 30, 2021, at the Jubilee House.

“I am happy that he’s recovered fully from his medical condition

and made history by becoming the first minister in the life of our

nation to have been vetted for two consecutive days at

the committee hearings,” he added.

The President, among other things, said Mr Ofori-Atta’s reappointment

was as a result of the competence demonstrated in his first term.

“He provided a staunch defence of his record in office as Finance Minister

from February 17, 2017, when he inherited a weak, faltering economy

from the Mahama Administration and helped nurse the economy back

to good health by January 6, 2021,” he lauded.

The President further reiterated the welfare of Ghanaian remains the

paramount consideration of public policy, hence charged

Mr Ofori-Atta to provide the leadership that is needed

to improve the standard of living.
