Lawmaker Haruna Idrisu, who represents the good people of Tamale South made mention that, the economy of the nation is in a total mess due to the mismanagement by the New Patriotic Party’s Government, and needs redemption.
According to him, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Ghana is 15%, which is worst in the history of our democracy. He said the debt to GDP of the country is about 75%, which indicates how serious our economy is collapsing.
In a One-On-One interview with Evans on Joy News, he said the NPP government cannot always use the covid-19 pandemic, as the bases of the failure in managing the economy. He thinks other countries has as well faced the pandemic, and everyone can check the performance of different economies across the world.
In addition, he accused the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta for not being truthful to the citizens and Parliament, so far as the debt of the nation is concerned. He shares different figures and amount to World Bank, and tells as a different story. The warning of the World Bank to the Government to check the level of their borrowing and the statistics, has proved the inconsistencies in the truth state of the economy.
Again, he said the National Democratic Congress, the Minority, Organizations and other well-meaning Ghanaians had called for the account and audit of the monies spent on covid-19 management, but the government turned a death ear. If not for the intervention from the World Bank to forced them to do so, they will never account to Ghanaians.
In his view, the path which the economy is moving on is dangerous and needs a saviour. He said the economy can be seen to be improving, if the life of ordinary Ghanaians is improving, and not what is said by mouth or on paper.
He touched on the fight against illegal mining across the regions, and condemned the burning of excavators by Government. He said it is unlawful according to the law, and must be stopped. Things have to go on according to the law, and not rather breaking the law to correct the wrong in society.
