Former President, John Dramani Mahama took an economy that was worth 64 billion dollars in 2013 but shrunk it down to 55 billion dollars before leaving office in 2016, Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta has revealed.
This he explained means that after 4 years in office, the Mahama administration managed to achieve an unenviable record of reducing the Ghanaian Economy by nearly 10 Billion USD thereby driving it into the a ditch
Presenting the budget for the first quarter of 2021, Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta told Parliament on Wednesday, October 28, 2020, that: “These, Mr. Speaker, are the facts”
He therefore, ironically warned electorates against voting for the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s John Dramani Mahama seeking to rule the country for a second time.
“The economy is stronger today than it was 4 years ago, and will continue to grow stronger and stronger with 4 more years to do more for the people of Ghana, with God’s help”.
“Mr . Speaker we must be careful as a nation to reject those who return from the Promised Land, with a bad report to subvert the spirit of our people and to reject leaders who would take us back to Egypt”, the Finance Minister told Ghanaians on the floor of the House
