#TwitterTrends: Ghanaians declare KT Hammond unfit to chair motion against Finance Minister

Co-chair of the ad hoc committee probing the Minister of Finance, Kobina Tahir Hammond, is currently topping trends as Ghanaians question his inclusion on the committee. 

The member of Parliament for Adnsi-Asokaw seems to have become unpopular with his comments as chair during the public hearing of the motion of censure against Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta.

Taking to Twitter to express their displeasure, most Ghanaians believe KT Hammond is “deliberately watering the atmosphere with unsolicited comic-display”. Others have accused his inclusion as a means to drag the whole proceeds. While some have called his presence on the chair a “shield” for Ken Ofori-Atta.

See some reactions below:

“KT Hammond is not fit to moderate such an important discourse. He’s deliberately watering the atmosphere with an unsolicited comic display. His demeanour was very rusty for such a job. Why do we reduce everything to a complete comedy in this country? No sense of urgency. Why???”

“You listen closely and it’s very obvious that KT Hammond is being spoon-fed. He himself doesn’t know anything about the enquiries he is making. Christ!”

“I’ve never had the chance to listen to KT Hammond before until today’s ad-hoc committee sitting. I asked myself: was this the man who referred to the youth as empty-headed? So this man is called an honourable member? Interesting.”


The 8-member committee is expected to end public sitting on Friday, November 18, with the rest of the days allocated to drafting a report for the Speaker.
