Ghana’s Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta has indicated in an interview that the stressful nature of his job allows him to only rest for four hours in a day.

According to the minister, this is as a result of the demanding nature of his job which require maximum 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 week to present the mid-year budget which is pending debate and approval by parliamentarians.
