Market women at Makola can even manage Ghana’s economy better than Ofori Atta, Dr. Amoako Baa. A political science professor and New Patriotic Party (NPP) member, Dr. Richard Amoako Baah, has questioned Finance Minister Ken Ofori-competence.
So far, he remarked, the Finance Minister’s handling of the Ghanaian economy has been a complete disaster.
Market women at Makola, he claims, can do a better job managing the economy than Ken Ofori-Atta.
It’s not juju to trade, according to the women at the market… That’s all there is to it if you’re selling for more than you paid for it.
This man is no match for the uninitiated women. He’s not a buyer or a seller, ooo! He borrows, he spends, and he borrows some more. “Who can’t do this?” he said on Ultimate 106.9 FM in Kumasi.
An investment banker was chosen to manage the country’s economic and financial affairs, but Dr. Amoako Baah questioned the country’s decision to entrust its economic and financial affairs to an investment banker.
No, he isn’t a financial specialist; he’s brought us to this position.” As an investment banker, this person isn’t in charge of administering a country. It’s nothing but gimmicks, collateralizing this and that one,” he snorted.
Dr Amoako Baah argued that the minister should remain in office until the IMF had all the information of his handling of the economy, following which the president may sack and investigate him for what he described as shady agreements made through the Enterprise Group Limited related to Ken Ofori Attah.
His remarks follow Ghana’s abrupt surrender to the International Monetary Fund for a possible bailout, which prompted his government’s terrible economic problems.
It is believed that Ken Ofori Attah will head negotiations with the International Monetary Fund after dismissing voices that predicted Ghana’s economic disaster if the government did not eat a humble pie.
