The NPP, when in opposition, did not buy the idea of the John Dramani Mahama administration going to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for support. They think a failed government will seek support from the IMF. But now the NPP government is now in need of support from the IMF. This has left many Ghanaians wondering why the NPP, which was against the International Monetary Fund (IMF) during the administration of John Dramani Mahama, is now in a race to get support from the IMF.
The Information Minister and Member of Parliament for Ofoase-Ayirebi constituency, Honorable Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, speaks for the first time amidst issues of the IMF going on in the country. The Honorable Kojo Oppong Nkrumah made some clarifications about the government's decision to go to the IMF for a bailout.
He made it known that the government was not going to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) because of domestic economic management but rather of an international crisis. He said the conditions that made the government go to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for support are totally different from the conditions that existed when Ghana went to the Fund in 2014/15 during the John Dramani Mahama administration.
What is your take on this article? Is Kojo Oppong Nkrumah defending his party or is he saying the truth because of the global crisis-induced phenomenon that has now made the government run to the IMF? Please leave your comments below.
