According to the lawmakers, failure by the President to heed their call of relieving Ken Ofori-Atta and Charles Adu Boahen of their duties is tantamount to they boycotting government business in the house.
The MPs, numbering 80, held a press conference on Tuesday to impress on the President to relieve his cousin of managing the national purse or risk their support for government business going forward.
President Akufo-Addo recently backed the works of the Finance Minister and said he has no reason to sack him speaking on an Ashanti region.
