"These three things can get 3 to 3.5 billion to shore up the Ghanaian economy" - Jojo Oppong Nkrumah

The Minister of Information Jojo Oppong Nkrumah has revealed three things the government is currently embarking on to help the country recover fully from the current hardship.

The Information Minister who revealed this on PeaceFm said the government is hopeful of getting 2 billion dollars from the IMF. IN addition, the government is hopeful of raising additional 1billion dollars which he said that one has already been sorted out. And on the domestic front, the government is hopeful of generating some revenues from E-Levy, and other taxes to achieve government objectives

He said "The IMF window could give us 1 to 2 billion, depending on what you get and add it to 1 billion that's already with us. [3] We have our own domestic measures that we are using to raise some monies. The E-Levy is a part of it, Property Rate and Tax Exemption Bill before Parliament meant to reduce our exemptions are also a part of it. If we do all these three things, we can get the 3 to 3.5 billion to shore up the Ghanaian economy."
