“Indeed, there were difficulties, yes government accompanied its strategies to perceive how to address those difficulties and those arrangements were disappointed by the very parliament that we have.

As per Mr. Otchere-Darko, the choice to look for help from the IMF was accepted by the public authority as an essential move to stay away from any further weight on the nation’s stores among others.
“..We are in a trouble yet on the off chance that you are in government and regardless of whether we choose to go to the IMF, however you are placed in a circumstance where your roads of raising income are being shut, whether through parliamentary activity or public dismissal, then you should handle it,” he said.
Adding, “The IMF may not be guaranteed to bring us cash yet it could stop a sudden spike in demand for our stores, stops a sudden spike in demand for your bonds, and I thoroughly consider in the event that we have that security the following 15 months, I accept that the nation will see a circle back.
