The Elections Will Tell: Where Is The Economist Who Set 177 Questions?; New Inflation Stirs Reactions

There is a popular Chinese adage that, he who blames others has a long way to go on his journey. He who blames himself is halfway there. He who blames no one has arrived.

Interestingly other adages claim that a good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less of the credit. Has the current NPP government taken a little more of the blame?

Can we also believe what Lao Tzu said about good leaders? He is noted to have said that, a good leader is best when people barely know that he exists, when his work is done , then his aim is fulfilled because they will say; 'we did it ourselves'.

Considering the prevailing economic atmosphere, can we say that that the NPP has a better economic leadership than previous governments?

The Nana Addo Danquah leadership has faced several challenges despite all the government's inputs or efforts.

Readers can recall how Dr. Bawumia Mahamudu previously set some 177 questions on the economy for the former late Vice President and chair of the economic management team, Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur. Dr. Bawumia was hailed as the Economic Messiah for his showmanship of knowledge in Macro economic issues including Structural Adjustment, Economic Welfare and many others.

Few years down from 2017, the economy has far more than deteriorated to the extent that 'Standard and Poor Global Credit Rating Agency' has downgraded the country's economy. The latest of the ailing features has been that of the fallen inflation as the June's 29.8 percent has worsened further to July's 31.7 percent.

What is President Nana Addo doing about his team? Should he replace both Dr. Bawumia and Ken Ofori Atta?

Many Ghanaians have vehemently reacted to the rise in inflation as they could no more keep calm over the rise in transport and food prices.

Other Ghanaians have indicated that they would certainly vote out the ruling NPP government come December 2024 elections. The NPP Government has also been told that they are the worst economic managers due to the 31.7 percent inflation rate.

What are your thoughts on the ongoing discussion? Do you think the inflation rate and other economic issues would affect the ruling NPP government ? Can they break the eight years?
