Ghana’s Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta says he is unable to have enough sleep and rest because the demands of his office and job will not allow him.
According to him, the maximum time he can sleep is only for four hours since he is overwhelmed with the multitude of duties that demand his attention and time.
Speaking to Kwaku Sakyi-Addo on Asaase Radio, the minister said, his sleep has been irregular since he took office as the one in charge of the nation’s finances.
“I don’t think I can sleep more than four hours because if I make a mistake and sleep at 12:00 am, I will be up at 4:00 am so I usually sleep at 1:00 – 2:00 am so I wake up at 6:00 am like everybody,” he said.
The finance minister was in parliament last Thursday to present the mid-year budget which is pending debate and approval by parliamentarians.
He is known to be always clad in White kaftan which has become iconic of his personality which according to him signifies purity of thought and discipline of heart.
