The Managing Director of Intercity STC Coaches, Nana Akomea has challenged Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam Nartey George to 'do a good job' when criticising the managers of the country's economy.

Nana Akomea said every objective Ghanaian would choose the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as better manager of the economy over the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Reacting to the Ningo Prampram MP on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana, the NPP renowned communicator refuted claims that the NPP administration has not been able to control the “free fall” of the local currency since its assumed power in 2017.

“You say this economy is in free fall, this economy? Look at the growth rate, the projected growth rate. Is this an economy in free fall? Look at the projected growth rate even from the World Bank’s own projections, is this an economy in free fall.

“Then you say the cedi is in sterile, when we ask what is sterile you say its because the Bank of Ghana has pumped 900 million. If you want to be an objective commentator about issues, you can be. And I am challenging you to do a better job,” he jabbed the MP.

Nana Akomea noted that the country's foreign exchange reserve is the highest in the past 10 years and the economy cannot therefore be said to be in sterile condition.

"I have seen the good work you are doing on the anti-gay bill so I know if you really want to do a good job you can do, so I challenge you to do better.

Hon. Sam Nartey George had earlier pleaded with the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta and the Vice President, Dr. Bawumia to shelve their pride and seek assistance in arresting the cedi which he said was on a free fall.

According to him, the “average Ghanaian is really really really living in a very difficult state at this point in time."
