I Developed Headache When I Saw That Ghana Has Been Classified As A Heavily Indebted Country - Hajia

Ghana is among the 34 African countries that have made it to the heavily indebted poor countries' list. This list of heavily indebted countries is an initiative by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank to ensure that no poor country in the world faces a debt burden it cannot pay back or manage.

Although the classification of Ghana as a heavily indebted country came as a shock to some people, others thought it was inevitable because of the trajectory of borrowing the country was on.

Expressing her shock at the classification of Ghana as a heavily indebted poor country, the former Acting Chairperson of the CPP, Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim, has indicated that she developed a slight headache when she saw that Ghana has been classified as a heavily indebted poor country by the IMF and World Bank.

Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim made this disclosure on 'Good Morning Africa' on Pan Africa television this morning, 16th November 2021, when she gave her reaction when she saw that Ghana has been classified as a heavily indebted poor country.

According to Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim, if Ghana is able is harness the resources that we have in this country, we won't have any business going to borrow money outside for them to classify us as one of the highly indebted nations.

Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim indicated that when she saw the publication that Ghana has been classified as a highly indebted poor country, she developed a slight headache.

"In fact, I thought that we have said bye-bye to this kind of phrase in Ghana, but waking up to see this same thing is not good enough."

So, for her, she hopes and prays that the 2020 budget, which will be read tomorrow, 17th November 2021 in Parliament, will be a budget that will give Ghanaians some hope, nothing more nothing less.
