Professor John Gatsi who is the dean of the school of business at the University of Cape Coast has laid the blame for our current economic problems squarely on the finance minister. Ofori Atta can't absolve himself of the blame. He made this assertion after Gabby Okyere Darko made some tweets yesterday about our current economic conditions.
Gabby who is a leading member of the ruling government tweeted that government may have to borrow at a point in time to pay wages. He also lamented the poor performance of the e-levy. It is not bringing in the anticipated revenue. They have raked in only 10 per cent of what the e-levy was supposed to bring.
Speaking to Francis Abban on the Starr morning show, he blamed the finance minister for the mess we are in. He said "He cannot manage the Ghanaian economy only in 2022. He has been managing the economy since 2017 and cumulatively, his policy in terms of fiscal management has created a huge problem for this country. I do not think that he is not aware. He is the one who presents the kind of borrowing that we need to do and that borrowing has created problems for the country. Therefore, we cannot blame any other person than the finance minister".
But what has this government got to show for all the massive they have done? Where are they taking us to? Are they capable of managing the economy? Why the constant reference to former President Mahama and then the Russia-Ukraine war? They should just do what we voted them for and stop the blame game.
