- Former deputy Minister of Finance, Mona Quartey, has described the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) as a government that lacks the required knowledge to manage Ghana’s economy
- According to her, the Akufo-Addo government has taken the country backwards since assuming office
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) government has been described as a group without sufficient knowledge to run Ghana’s economy, according to a former deputy minister of Finance, Mona Quartey.
“I have to say that in fact, this current government lacks awareness, because they seem to be totally not in touch with the ground. They lack understanding, and in spite of their PHDs, they lack knowledge,” the former deputy minister stated.
Speaking on the economy at a public lecture by the NDC on Thursday, April, 4, 2019, Mona opined that the NPP administration has take the country back many steps.
She noted that Akufo-Addo led administration lacks the know-how to effectively run the economy.
“They talk about an inclusive transformation agenda; this is a lazy approach to macro-economic stability, a lazy approach to building our economy.
“To be honest, I think most of them were just derived out of the SDGs; no thought, not much thought at all went into that. Some of them were just copied from the many policies that we had in place and which we had began to achieve,” Mrs. Quartey asserted.
The former finance minister added that the NDC government under Mahama left an economy that was resilient and ready to take off.
But the NPP government have collapsed everything the NDC left and purposely misleading Ghanaians.
