Ahiagbah Urges Pensioners To Support The Government

NPP Communications Director Richard Ahiagbah has called on the Ghanaian people to support the government’s domestic debt swap initiative. To ensure the program’s success, he pleaded with Ghanaians for their backing.

In a Twitter post sighted by Tru News Report reads: “Let’s support the government and disregard the NDC, who have chosen to play games with the emotions of retirees. NDC lacks solutions.”

For the past two weeks, the pensioners have been protesting outside the Finance Ministry, demanding that the minister exempt them from the exercise. The minister has repeatedly claimed that retirees are able to self-exempt themselves from the program.

On Thursday 16, February 2023, while he was briefing the House on the Domestic Debt Exchange Programme he said the programme is essential in order to eliminate the funding crisis and “enable the government to meet the debt sustainability target of 55% of debt to GDP in present value terms by 2028.”

He stated once again that the debt exchange is a component of a broader government response strategy that is being implemented in order to address the current challenges. Mr Ofori-Atta went on to say that as a result, the government will be able to meet the criteria for a programme offered by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which will boost confidence in the economy.

In addition to the growth and sustainability bill, the finance minister has pushed for the passage of amendments to the income tax, excise duty, and excise tax stamp laws.
