We Used Covid-19 As An Excuse To Go For Electioneering Recklessness - Fifi Fiavi Kwetey

The former Deputy Finance Minister, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey has accused the Akufo Addo government of using the coronavirus as an excuse and went for an electioneering recklessness.

Fifi Kwetey made this allegation on ‘NewsFile’ on Joynews television with Samson Lardy Anyenini when he was giving his submission on the 5% tax on Banks’ profit introduced by the government in the 2021 budget.

“The whole problem is that; we are dealing with a government that simply went for broke in an election year. They spent way beyond the threshold whilst today, you and I and the people of Ghana are being made to pay thrice for that electioneering recklessness.

Covid-19 was just not limited to Ghana, covid-19 was happening all over Africa and the world. Have you heard of any country implementing these measures after covid-19?

No country is taking this route as we are taking. The difference is; whereas they concentrated on covid-19, we used covid-19 as an excuse to go for electioneering recklessness. That is the cause of what we are facing today.

They've used the elections to destroy our economy under the guise covid-19 and has come around to penalize the people of Ghana for the kind of decision they’ve made.” – he revealed
