Former President Mahama has descended heavily on the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Kristalina Georgieva, over comments that Ghana's economic crisis should be blamed on external shocks.
According to him, that assertion cannot be backed by facts since the reality on the ground indicates that the country's current economic crisis is a result of the bad economic policies of the Akufo-Addo-led government.
Taking to his Facebook page on Thursday, September 8, 2022, the 2022 NDC flagbearer said the consequences of the government's ill-advised policies, rampant corruption, and lack of accountability, including mismanagement of COVID-19 funds, caused the financial hardships being experienced by the ordinary Ghanaian.
"The incontrovertible fact is that, Ghana is in a mess due to the BAD POLICIES of this government, which have contributed massively to the dire state of affairs," he said.

The former President also called on the international diplomat to be guarded by her commentary on the state of the Ghanaian economy and to speak based on facts, not opinions.
"While the norm in international diplomacy of being guarded in what one says is appreciated, comments by high ranking officials must be grounded on facts that take into consideration local realities and opinions."
