Gabby replies Steve Hanke; says he doesn’t sit far away behind his PC typing doom

A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Otchere-Darko has replied Professor Steven Hanke on his comments that the Former Executive Director of the Danquah Institute must be living on another planet for saying government deserves praises for how the economy has been managed.

Mr Otchere-Darko earlier observed that despite slump in revenues, bills are being paid, including salaries.

Roads are also being fixed,  money has been found for programmes like YouStart to create jobs for the teeming youth.

In a tweet he said “The Akufo-Addo government and, in particular, MoF, deserve the nation’s commendation for their handling of the economy in these most challenging times. Despite slump in revenues, bills are being paid, including salaries, roads being fixed, & money found for programmes like YouStart.”

 

But responding to him also in a tweet, the Professor at the Johns Hopkins University, Steve Hanke said “Leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Gabby Otchere-Darko says Pres. Akufo-Addo deserves ‘praise’ for his handling of the economy.

“SPOILER ALERT: Otchere-Darko must be on another planet. Today, I measure #Ghana‘s inflation at a stunning 81%/yr.”

In reply to his tweet, Gabby said “I live on the part of this planet called Ghana. I see, I feel how tough things are, especially for the average Ghanaian.

“I see how tough it is for Govt and the constant struggle to keep bills paid, kids in school, our lights on etc. I don’t sit far away behind my PC typing doom.”
