Information Minister-designate, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, says Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams’s declaration of a 72-hour fasting and prayer for Ghana won’t affect the incumbent government.
Speaking on Asempa FM’s flagship political talk show, Ekosii Sen, the politician said the New Patriotic Party (NPP) were not fortunate to inherit a bad economy from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) party.
According to him, even though most Ghanaians are complaining about hardships lately, the state of the economy, there are positive indications for the economy, compared to John Mahama’s administration.
He explained that the Arch-Bishop urging his members to pray for the country will not affect the decisions of the NPP party.
“It doesn’t affect us at all; the art of praying for the country is good. There is nothing wrong with it. We have to put ourselves in the hands of God.
“In 2016, development was very low, including inflation and treasury bills owed. It was due to the crisis that we resorted to IMF. Now, a year and a half on, we are gradually moving out from 75 to 63 per cent GDP-to-debt-ratio. Electricity tariffs are down. The Free SHS scheme has been implemented and the health insurance is doing well,” he told Osei Bonsu.
