The issue of Ghana's joining the international monetary fund (IMF) program has been on the lips of politicians and Ghanaian citizens since it came to public notice.
Some citizens believed it was a rush for the government to enroll with the IMF for funds since the current economic hardship in the country is connected to the global crisis in the world. While some claim the economy will perform better when the global economic situation turns around, others agree with the government's decision to seek funds from the IMF.
A post shared on the Facebook page of Kofi Asare shows the Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah's press statement indicating His Excellency Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-addo has authorized the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, to start a formal engagement with the IMF for funds to help support the government's economic programs.
In his reaction to the statement, Kofi Asare, executive director of Ghana Educational Watch, stated that he intends to plan a protest against the government's decision to join the IMF program.
In response to Kofi Asare's post, some fans said they would join the demonstration, while others said it was too late because the president was ahead of him in his plan.
