AUDIO: Whoever will say it is not COVID that devasted Ghana’s economy needs a mental check up – Kusi Boafo

Mr Thomas Kusi-Boafo, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Public Sector Reforms Secretariat, says assertions that Ghana’s economy was already in trouble before the global pandemic struck are false.

He said that the Nana Addo-led administration had a fast-growing economy before the pandemic’s devastating consequences left several wealthy countries’ economies in shambles.

Mr Kusi-Boafo, however, revealed to Kwesi Aboagye on NEAT FM’s morning show, ‘Ghana Montie,’ that Ghana’s economy is in trouble “It’s not in good form right now.”

However, as previously said, “Whoever claims that COVID is not to blame for the world’s devastation ought to have their head examined.”

“…The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund were both bankrupt. I’m telling you the hard truth today because otherwise the World Bank and the IMF would have fallen by now “Kwesi Aboagye was informed.

Mr. Pierre Laporte, the World Bank’s Country Director for Ghana, recently stated that not all financial problems could be blamed to Covid-19 because the country’s economy was already failing before to the pandemic’s emergence.

Mr Laporte said his group had met with the Finance Minister, who “understands the gravity of the situation.”
