Professor Stephen Adei, a former chair of the National Development Planning Commission has made a rallying call to the president to solve the current economic doldrums we have found ourselves in. He said that if he doesn't do anything now, the situation will get much worse. He said "We really must have a leadership that has the vision and is willing to call everybody to order and insist on really bringing the best brains together. It is a serious national challenge we face.
I think this is a challenge which has nagged the country for many years and at this moment, we have to see the President rising to the occasion or else Ghana is going to have serious difficulties getting out of this crisis”.
The government has finally decided to seek external help from the IMF. In a statement released earlier today, the president has directed Ofori Atta to begin formal discussions with the IMF. This same Akuffo Addo told us they have homegrown solutions and that IMF is dangerous for us. I want to ask them now. What has changed that will warrant them to run to IMF? Was it not because of this same IMF program that John Mahama was called all sorts of names?
This simply tells us that Akuffo Addo and his government are incompetent.
