I regret voting Mahama out: Massive Reactions as Ghanaians discuss economic issues

Readers can recall how the former Finance Minister Seth Terkper advised government to reduce expenditure to enable the economy to improve. It can also be recalled that Seth Terkper said that he did not support the legislation of the E-levy in its form .He further advised government to put together sound sound policies if they wanted to go to the IMF.

Readers can also appreciate the fact that there are ongoing public discussions about whether the government must now go to the IMF considering how the E-levy has not met desirable targets.

In fact, readers have not forgotten how the E-levy trickled in a lot of public debate but eventually got passed by the ruling NPP government. Ghanaians have reacted immensely to the prevailing economic situation in the country and have made several remarks about the E-levy and any IMF considerations.

Fidellove Agbekey has stated that the government should stop the E-levy as soon as it nurses or hatches any plan to visit the IMF.

Enoch Ampiah indicated that since government failed to listen to Ghanaians or the NDC and passed the E-levy into law, they should stick to their home-grown policies.

Listowel Abugri also mentioned that the woes of the country are as a result of government's arrogance and refusal to accept diverse opinions.

Kwabena Gabriel also explained that he regrets voting Mahama out. In fact, he has probably understood that Mahama's policies worked better than the current NPP government.

What are your thoughts on the ongoing discussion?
