Akuffo Addo Can Deliver In His Quest To Borrow From IMF If Officials Change Their Mindsets - Clergy

Founder and leader of the Word Church Ministry located at Madina suburb of Accra in the Greater Accra Region, Rev Victor Frimpong has observed that Nana Akuffo Addo stands the chance to transform the country with his good intentions to borrow from the linternational Monetary Fund (IMF) if only his Cabinet Ministers and officials entrusted to occupy key positions change their mindsets.

In his defence, he said people who have been entrusted to hold high offices are the movers of the nation and that least mistakes that they would do can hold back the progress and development of the country.

Speaking to the Opera News Correspondent King Amoah in an interview in Kumasi over the weekend, the man of God expressed regret that Ghana is though blessed with various natural resources, the country always rely on external loans to build its economy.

The man of God allegedly attributed the menace to corruption and mismanagement of the key office holders in the country.

He alleged that inspite of the mechanicism been put in place by the government to check economic lapses the issue of corruptions tend to rise up at higher proportion.

But as an obvious steps to allegedly ensure covering up the deals, officials resort to blame games by failing to identify the sources of the corruption, leaving the suspected culprits to go unpunished.

In the view of Rev Frimpong lack of internal control system is one of the major challenges that are setting back the progress of the country because state officials are allegedly not ready to change their mindsets towards economic revival and development.

In an answer to a question the clergy conceded the fact that the covid-19 pandemic coupled with the Russia - Ukraine war are parts of 

the contrbuting factors that have brought economic hardships in the country

Yet, alleged corruptions and mismanagement of state funds also play a leading role about the current difficulties the country finds itself.

As a nation, it is prudent that everyone should have clear a intention to build a solid economy than to harbour an alleged evil intentions that can erode the gains of the society, the clergy hinted.

Rev Victor Frimpong commended President Akuffo Addo for the current steps he has taken to borrow from the International Monetary Fund to help support the country to bail itself out from economic crisis.

But the clergy underscored that the President can only realized his aim if his advisers and for that matter key office holders and Ghanaians in general prepared to change their mindsets and face the realities of the true definition on how to build a sound and solid economy. 

Rev Victor Frimpong also suggested for effective supervisory mechanicism that could help discourage the activities of antisocial vices to enhance the benefits that the country would gain from the IMF loan.
