Kwabena Duffour Asks Akufo-Addo To Get Rid Of Economic Management Team Led By Bawumia

The current economic crisis is proof that the country needs a new economic management team, according to Dr. Kwabena Duffour, a former finance minister and member of the government.

According to him, the existing team, led by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, should be replaced since those responsible for the economic crisis are incapable of fixing it.

He made this statement during an interview with Joy News which was sighted by Tru News Report, saying “The team, not just him, the management team “Economic Management Team”, including the Finance Minister, they are the ones who created the problem. Can they solve the problem?

“Especially when I hear some of them say that, oh but for the fact that we were kicked out of the international market, we could have gone to borrow 2 or 3 billion. This means the same level of consciousness that created the problem, they haven’t seen that we have a problem yet” he added.

In response to a question about former Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo’s assessment of the performance of current Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, Dr. Duffour stated, “As a nation, we borrowed almost $15 billion for eight years.

He said “That’s huge money. If this had gone into projects which should pay for themselves, we would have been in a better position now. So, the former Chief Justice has a point. No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness”.
