Economist and Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori Atta has made known his presidential ambitions.
Speaking to Metro TV’s Paul Adom-Otchere in an interview on Thursday, November 18, Ken Ofori Atta said he is satisfied with contributing his intellectual abilities to the success of the incumbent government.
“Sometimes, people believe that it’s their energies and their intellect that brought them in politics but I just firmly believe that the LORD needs you and gives you the energy to do a specific job and when you begin to mission-creep is when you shipwreck,” he stated.
More importantly, Ofori Atta stated categorically that he is not interested in becoming Ghana’s president, but what he believes is the usage of his brain to support the gov’t and Ghana as a whole.
He cited how Jean Monnet, a civil servant, thought through the bringing together of European nations to found the European Union (EU).
“I think we should all understand what our God-given attributes are and not stretch it beyond what He has not mandated us to do.”
