Those who take you to IMF cannot break the 8 – Kennedy Agyapong.

According to a statement signed by Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, President Akufo-Addo had a telephone conversation with the IMF Managing Director, Miss Kristalina Georgieva, conveying Ghana’s decision to engage with the Fund.

President Nana Akufo-Addo recently directed Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta to begin talks with the IMF for a bailout.

Speaking at an on-going NPP National Constituency Officers Welfare workshop at Koforidua in the Eastern Region Friday, Mr Agyapong expressed disgust about the move by the government to seek a bailout from the IMF.

He said the decision to do that has tilted the 2024 general elections in the favour of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

It is just like handing over power to NDC without a contest, straight away because the noise we made, and I chew my own words back when I said the NDC went to IMF because of mismanagement of the economy.

The engagement with the IMF will seek to provide a balance of payment support as part of a broader effort to quicken Ghana’s build back in the face of challenges induced by the Covid-19 pandemic and, recently, the Russia Ukraine crises.
