The Editor-in-Chief of the Crusading Guide Newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako says going back to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) everytime does not make sense. It doesn't make you a proud Ghanaian.
According to Kweku Baako, Ghana cannot continue going in circles. He says Ghana appears to be repeating the same mistakes every time we go to the IMF.
To him, it is not good enough because we seem to have succeeded in implementing the program but he says within three to four years, we are back to square one.
Speaking on Metro TV on Thursday, July 7, Abdul Malik Kweku says that though he agrees that the government has the right to go to the IMF, he feels disappointed.
He emphatically said, “I’ve always had difficulties with the IMF and let me the honest with you; while it is the right of the government to opt for that, I felt disappointed. I remember in 2015, I felt the same way even though I publicly said it was the right of the government to go for it but regrettable same with 2009.”
In conclusion, Mr Baako says it does not make sense to keep on going to the IMF everytime as a country, and it does not make you proud as a Ghanaian. And I believe that you will agree with him?
