Convene a national economic dialogue – Mahama to government

Former President John Dramani Mahama has pounced on the current government over Ghanaians’ economic woes, describing the situation as dire.

He expressed doubts about the country’s ability to survive until an IMF program is implemented because the economy appears to be collapsing.

Former President Mahama told the leadership of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) at his office on Friday that the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, had been hiding behind a bleak economy all along and was rather painting a rosy picture as if everything was fine.

As a result, Mr Mahama charged the government with being transparent and soliciting assistance from well-meaning Ghanaians with the “best brains.”

“The government should come clean and tell us, ‘How is the economy?'” “You must lay everything out,” he said.

“That is why I proposed a national dialogue.” I said bring together the brightest minds. I’ve previously served as president, and it served me well. The fact that I called the Senchi Forum did not diminish my standing as President.”

If immediate action is not taken, he claims, “it will be catastrophic for all of us.”

Ghana is currently seeking a $3 billion bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to save its ailing economy.

The program is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
