Finance Minister Designate, Ken Ofori Atta has opted to use a Toyota Camry instead of an SUV vehicle when he finally gets approval from parliament to serve the ministry, according to Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko.

The founder of Danquah Institute in a tweet, Wednesday, commended Mr. Ofori Atta for making a "bold statement" to use a lesser vehicle for official business.

Mr. Ofori Atta's move can be said to be an action of exercising fiscal discipline, a concept which was inferred heavily by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the campaign period.

The party accused the then National Democratic Congress (NDC) government of mismanaging the country’s scarce resource to the detriment of the poor and vulnerable in society and vowed to issue guidelines to ensure there is fiscal discipline in the usage of public funds when given the mandate to serve the country.

President Akufo-Addo on Tuesday appointed Ken Ofori Atta as Finance Minister designate.

This is leadership by example. It shows where you are raised as a social ***barred word*** determines your outlook in life. This is a Yale-educated guy. Need I explain that Yale is an ivy-league school who accepts only the best. If such a guy talks to me about austerity I will listen. I hope this is not game-manship but will transcend his entire public service life. Let others emulate this good example. Who said African politicians can't be modest? Come on,there you have ! Camry is still a luxury but modest in comparison to SUV!. Good one there,my role model!

This demonstration of selfless leadership is very rare and thus worth amplifying. I appreciate what the finance minister has done and wish him well.NPP is surely the best political party with selfless, dedicated and industrious leaders on the African Continent.

Instead of us to encourage others to do same , we are rather insulting someone who has chosen to reduce the pressure on state purse, As people we should learn to give praises when it's due
