Minister of Information, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has responded to former President John Mahama and Ghanaians who are of the view that the economy has failed a month of Covid-19.
The former president, John Mahama during a digital conversation he held recently said the much-hyped economy by the Nana Addo led government has failed the test of time.
“Unfortunately, the government has used a lot of propaganda saying the economy has been the best that we have ever had since independence. Unfortunately, just one month of coronavirus the economy is in ICU. If we didn’t run to the IMF for the one billion rapid credit facility, it is possible that in the next month probably salaries would not have been paid and so our economy is on ventilators, and it needs thinking to rescue if from the ICU,” Mahama said.
According the Minister of Information at a press briefing on Tuesday, April 28,2020, the current economy is able to withstand compared to the one inherited from the previous government.
“An economy that can’t keep the lights on will not be able to afford a ventilator let alone to keep it functioning to save lives. We have come far as a country on a more serious note, building a strong economic base to find all that we doing,” he said.
