Vocal Ghanaian politician, Kennedy Agyapong, has expressed his disappointment with the government’s decision to start engagement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
President Akuf-Addo authorized the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Attah to start the engagement formally.
This was after he communicated with the IMF Managing Director.
“The engagement with the IMF will seek to provide balance of payment support as part of a broader effort to quicken Ghana’s build back in the face of challenges induced by the Covid-19 and, recently, the Russia-Ukraine crises,” a statement signed by the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah explained.
Mr Agyapong reacted that the decision taken by the government will make it difficult for the NPP to retain the presidential seat.
He said it is just like NPP handing over power to NDC without a contest.
“It is just like handing over power to NDC without a contest, straight away because of the noise we made, and I chew my own words back when I said the NDC went to IMF because of mismanagement of the economy. So if NPP is going to IMF, what am I going to say? So breaking the eight is going to be tough.
“My message to you is simple, you cannot, read my lips and I am not scared of anybody in the party, I will tell you the gospel truth, those who take you to IMF cannot break the 8,” the Assin Central MP stated at an on-going NPP National Constituency Officers Welfare workshop at Koforidua in the Eastern Region on Friday.
