Chartered economist Michael Ebo Amoah says it was about time President Akufo-Addo showed leadership in the face of the economic crisis.
He suggested that the President must consider a lean and mean government.
The economist explained that the lean and mean government is non-negotiable, and the President must do it immediately.
He said on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that the current economic challenges confronting the country call for an approach that would restore confidence, and there was no better way or time for the country to have a lean and mean government.
He also disagreed with suggestions that Ghana’s economy has collapsed.
The economist opined that Ghana is facing an economic crisis, but our economy is not collapsed.
Speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he declared that ”Ghana’s economy is not collapsed. We are facing a crisis. The government needs to show leadership”
“Ghana was a shining example during the Covid-19 era, so what kind of leadership are they showing in this economic crisis to solve the problem,” Mr. Darkwah asked. Ghana is not the only country dealing with the problem. It is international. However, how do you demonstrate leadership?”
He said we needed the government to show sterling leadership. I would say the economy has collapsed. It is crooked, and we can do something about it. We need to show leadership to solve the problem.
