NDC Is Not Fit To Be In Gov't...They Are 'Wearing An Oversized Dress'

A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) strongly believes the country is ‘in crisis’ because the government in power is ‘wearing a dress which is bigger than their original size’. Secretary for the NPP in the Central Region, Kwamena Duncan, claims the current administration has no clue in managing the economy, adding, they are "not the right people to be there". Kwamena Duncan was speaking to measures suggested by the Economic Team of his party, NPP, to end the current economic crisis facing the country. The NPP's Economic Team at a press conference on Tuesday said the economy was in "tatters" and suggested six measures the John Mahama led administration needs to adopt if it truly wants to end the current economic crisis. The team led by Yaw Osafo Maafo, former Minister of Finance in the erstwhile President Kufour administration, explained that the current economic management style of President John Mahama, consisting of reckless spending, more borrowing and increased taxation will lead to economic suicide; suggesting that they (government) must tackle corruption earnestly and sincerely. Kwamena Duncan told Kwami Sefa-Kayi on PeaceFM’s Morning Show “Kokrokoo” on Wednesday that he is not surprised the current administration is facing difficulty in manning the affairs of this country because ‘they are not fit for the job’. “The people we have in office today are not the right people to be there and that is why the country is facing so many difficulties. Those in office today do not have what it takes to manage an economy. Look at the resources being thrown down the drain. We have become virtually helpless…” he intimated. He went ahead to advise government to get off its high horse and pay attention to the recommendations of the NPP. “The statements of the NPP are in the right direction and we need to apply the brakes. Government should take critical look at the recommendations given by the NPP and cut down frivolous expenditures because gradually, we are going down the drain…” he added.
