The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has said going to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is a lazy man’s approach to solving the economic problem as well as a short term fix which cannot redeem the damaged economy

The CPP said it is unfortunate that the Akufo–Addo/Bawumia government need an outside body like the IMF to hold them to a fiscal discipline regime “where they will be forced to be prudent and to have a plan aimed at prioritising spending”

“It means the Nana Akufo-Addo/Bawumia led government all this time did not know what they were about and they were playing games with our economy, not caring a hoot about the implications and ramifications of their negligence on the people of this country,” a statement issued by the party on Tuesday July 5 said.

Subsequent to the directive by the President of the Republic of Ghana, the Ministry of Finance said it has commenced engagement with the Fund to support Ghana’s economic programme.

“Pursuant to this, a delegation from the Fund is scheduled to arrive in Accra on Tuesday 5th July, 2022, to commence in-person meetings with the Government of Ghana on Wednesday 6th July, 2022.
