A member of the NPP's communication team, Akosua Manu as revealed that, what the NPP government have faced with during the coronavirus pandemic in Ghana, if it had been the NDC government, the country would have been on it's knees.
Akosua made this statement on GOOD MORNING GHANA on Metro TV today when she was giving her opinion on the introduction of new taxes in this year's budget.
"I will keep saying that, we are not in normal things because what this government have been faced with during this Covid-19 outbreak, if it was the previous government, the country will be on it's knees.
I can tell you that for a fact because 'dumsor' was not a pandemic. We saw that, the issue of 'dumsor' had to do with debt financing, it wasn't about capacity but debts.
Ultimately, we saw that 12 purchased agreement which tied this nation to debt which if it wasn't renegotiated, would have resulted in 500 million dollars debt.
I am saying it again that, If the previous administration faced what we we've faced with Covid-19, it would have been a different conversation because we have seen through data captured that in two years we've moved Ghana's economy unto a track of progress.
We have Ghana being recorded as the fastest growing economy and this isn't about just saying it here. The Financial Times actually reported it which drove investors to come here to start looking around for opportunities." - she said
