The Akufo Addo led administration has been urged to apologise to Ghanaians by Professor Stephen Adei, a former rector of GIMPA.He asserts that an apology for the deteriorating economic situation in the nation is required even if the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government’s control over Ghana’s economy may have been limited.
He opined that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his administration have to really apologise to Ghanaians for the country’s economic woes.
Ghanaians should brace themselves for additional hardship after the 2024 election, Prof. Adei opined.Professor Adei additionally urged the Bank of Ghana reconsider its initiative to build a new $250 million headquarters.
He remarked that while he agrees with all of the justifications provided by the Bank of Ghana that their facility is unfit for purpose, there are certain things that we cannot change at this time because the nation is presently experiencing an extensive financial crisis.
We have a problem with governance in this country… People in government, whether the National Democratic Congress (NDC) or the New Patriotic Party (NPP), do not admit fault. I think it is a bad practise.”
“I haven’t heard an explicit statement from the President or Minister of Finance Ken Ofori-Atta, that ‘we are sorry for what has happened to Ghana’, even whether things went beyond our capacity, whether it was Ukraine -Russia war, COVID-19 pandemic,”On TownHall Talk on Asaase Radio, Prof. Adei is said to have remarked.
“I would have expected the government to say, things are hard in Ghana, we have tried to steady the boat, but we want to apologize for the infliction, not by us but even by some economic circumstances,” He continued.
