Several individuals have asked him to resign if he has any integrity.
However, speaking to the media at the ongoing New Patriotic Party (NPP) annual national delegates’ conference in Accra on Saturday (16 July), Ofori-Atta said he will not resign.
“It is almost like telling a father to resign from his children because he is changed his mind.
