You have nothing to lose, take bold decisions now to deal with the challenges – Economist tells Akufo-Addo

An Economist at the University of Ghana Business School, Dr Badu Sakordie has indicated that this is the time President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has to take bold decisions to solve the challenges facing the economy.

This decisions, he said should include sacking underperforming appointees.

In his view, President Akufo-Addo has nothing to lose if he takes such a decision.

President Akufo-Addo earlier gave an indication that he was satisficed with the work of his Ministers when he was called upon to reshuffle the appointees and sack some.

Speaking on the New Day show on TV3 Wednesday October 12, Dr Adu Sarkodie said “Now is the time that they should show leadership, they showed it during covid time and we appreciated. They should engage stakeholders, GUTA and others, sit with them.”

He added “We must have a plan and execute the plan. We need the selfless leader to do that and I believe President Akufo-Addo can do that.

“He can do it, this is the time to do it, this is the time to take some of the bold decisions because he has nothing to lose.”

Regarding the ongoing engagement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) he said Ghana needs the support from the Fund but beyond that, the country needs to undertake reforms.

“We need the IMF programme. Beyond that we must be serious as a country, reform our policies,” he said.
