In an interview with Citi News, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Obuasi West, Kwaku Kwarteng, who is leading the crusade by the Minority, said the Finance Minister must be dragged before the House for answers.
According to him, government as an employer for public sector workers is breaching the law by failing to transfer the pension funds into the Bank of Ghana account for onward investments by the National Pensions and Regulatory Authority (NPRA).
"That is clearly illegal because there are comprehensive provisions in the Act for punishing employers who do that but since it is government; we are not quite sure whether the NPRA can enforce these sanctions against government," he remarked.
Mr. Kwarteng added that it is imperative for the Minister for Finance to explain to MPs the investments government done with workers' pensions.
"If those funds have been invested and yielded returns, ultimately, pensioners would have more comfortable pensions," he argued.

Kwaku Kwarteng described the act as illegal, saying it "deviates drastically from the official rates quoted by Ghanaian banks and rates prevailing in the Ghanaian currency market."
Mr. Kwarteng's accusations were contained in a letter addressed to the governor of the Bank of Ghana, Kofi Wampah.
Mr. Kwarteng is not the only member of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) who has accused the BoG of publishing what he described in his letter as irregular data.

Kwaku Kwarteng is the newly elected New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament for Obuasi West.
He has recently demanded full disclosure by the government on the missing millions from Ghana's hedging program.
The Member of Parliament has requested full disclosure of funds collected in 2012 from the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) debt collection levy.
Kwarteng said that the government's budget statement claims the hedging programme had been successful, but the 2013 budget statement did not declare any proceeds from the TOR debt recovery levy and stated that nothing was collected from the programme.
Kwarteng asked the Finance Minister, Mr. Seth Terkper, to explain the discrepancy during parliament.
Kwarteng is demanding accountability from the executive.
