Why Not Bawumia?; Ghanaians Massively React As Akufo Addo Is Named As Chairman Of Negotiation Talks

At a forum organized by Media General, a panel member, Dr. John Asafu-Adjaye revealed that he is not surprised that the NPP government decided to go to IMF. According to Dr. John Asafu-Adjaye, the country's ratings were too low that the international capital market could no more give loans to the government, leading to the IMF alternative.

The Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, who was also a panel member, agreed with Dr. John Asafu- Adjaye and further revealed that the President of Ghana would chair the task force team for the IMF negotiations whilst Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta and his team would lead the data sharing.

The Minister of Information further explained that there were levels in the negotiations and so that was why Nana Addo spoke directly with the Managing Director of IMF at the inception of discussions.

Many Ghanaians have reacted strongly to the comments of the Information Minister. Some Ghanaians believe Nana Addo should leave the negotiations to the younger ones.

Other Ghanaians have asked why Dr. Bawumia, the head of the Economic team management is not the one chairing the talks.

What are your thoughts on the ongoing discussions?
