- Dr Spio-Gabrah is saying NPP has brought the inflation rate and deficits down
- He says they have generally improved the macro-economy of the country
A leading member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr Ekow Spio-Gabrah has disclosed that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government is managing Ghana’s economy far better since it took office.
According to him, the macro-economy of the country is performing better since the NPP took office under President Akufo-Addo in January 2017.
Speaking to Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Wednesday, the former diplomat insisted that the NPP government is doing better with holding inflation and deficits down as compared to the erstwhile Mahama administration.
“On the law and order issue, they are very low, on trying to deal with the macro-economy in terms of just bringing the numbers down; inflation rate, deficits they are doing better than the NDC had done,” Dr Spio-Gabrah said.
He also added that, “the NPP is doing very well with capturing words that will catch your attention, implementation; infrastructure, we haven’t seen anything yet”.
The former trade minister indicated that despite all efforts being put together by the NPP administration, Nana Addo will be a one-term president.
The top NDC man argued that governments under the fourth republic started off with 8-year terms, therefore Ghanaians are used to the system.
Dr Spio-Gabrah added that but the unfortunate death of President Mills created an instant one-term type scenario which he believes made it easier for Ghanaians to shorten the 8-year rule that John Mahama could have enjoyed as president.
