Casiel Ato Forson, a former deputy finance minister, applauded the government’s choice to seek assistance from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
He expressed his satisfaction with the choice.
“I am glad that finally, the NPP government has taken the decision to go to the IMF in a way that Ghana can get the programme obviously to implement, that will, in the long term, bring about the economic stability that we want.
“I have always said that Ghana first. First a Ghanaian, and second a politician. I want to reiterate the fact that this administration has unfortunately delayed too long, it has taken them too long to take a very simple decision and to work very hard to get the programme,” the Ajumako-Enyan-Esiam Constituency told TV3’s Parliamentary correspondent Komla Kluste in an interview on Friday, July 1.
