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
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
