“The point is about an inclusive long-term national development plan. That is what we have failed to appreciate,” he said.

Another Economist who also spoke on the same show, Dr. Badu Sakordie indicated that this is the time President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has to take bold decisions because he has nothing to lose.

“Now is the time that they should show leadership, they showed it during the covid time and we appreciated it. They should engage stakeholders, GUTA and others, sit with them.”

He added “We must have a plan and execute the plan. We need a selfless leader to do that and I believe President Akufo-Addo can do that.

“He can do it, this is the time to do it, this is the time to take some of the bold decisions because he has nothing to lose.”

Regarding the ongoing engagement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) he said Ghana needs support from the Fund but beyond that, the country needs to undertake reforms.

“We need the IMF program. Beyond that we must be serious as a country, and reform our policies,” he said.
