Ghana’s economic management team has given IMF fake figures – Fmr Dep. Finance Minister



A former Deputy Finance Minister, Mona Quartey, has alleged that officials of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have discovered some inaccuracies in the macro-economic figures presented by government’s economic management team.

According to her, this revelation raises credibility issues which can potentially affect the outcome of Ghana’s ongoing engagements with the IMF.

Contributing to discussions on Newsfile on Saturday, the former NDC appointee expressed her displeasure about the conduct of the economic management team.

“There has to be a change of the economic management team. This team is no longer credible. This is a team that has lied, not only to the people of Ghana outside your party, but they’ve also lied to you [Akufo-Addo]. And the IMF has found them out. The numbers they gave; the macro-economic numbers they gave were not correct”, she said.

Noting her reservations, the finance expert wondered why the President has refused to sack the members of the economic management team, whom she stressed, have failed in the discharge of their responsibilities.

She added that the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, has no business being at post, after supervising the present economic decline.

The comments by Mona Quartey come at a time when scores of Ghanaians are making passionate appeals for the Finance Minister to be sacked.
