Afenyo-Markin Pushes The NPP government To The IMF, Due To Its Incompetence And The Stolen COVID Funds

Feature Article Afenyo-Markin Pushes The NPP government To The IMF, Due To Its Incompetence And The Stolen COVID Funds
JUL 2, 2022 LISTEN

The argument made by Alexander Afenyo-Markin, a member of parliament for Effutu, that the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and the Coronavirus are to blame for the NPP political party's defection to the IMF is utterly absurd.

Since every Ghanaian is aware that the NPP government is the kind of administration that not only accepts responsibility but also finds it very difficult to provide an apology when they wrong the populace, I am not at all surprised by the meaningless comment made by Afenyo-Markin.

No one can overlook the devastating effects of the coronavirus on the world's economy and employment. The NPP government, however, finds it very difficult to communicate or acknowledge the fact that Ghana was already having problems as a nation under the control of the inept NPP government before COVID-19 struck the world.

If Afenya-Markin is correct in his assertion that the former Mahama administration sought financial assistance from the IMF after mismanaging the country's economy, then, I have the right to counter that the NPP government kowtows to the IMF because it is incompetent, dishonest, and particularly notorious for stealing COVID funds.


Afenyo-Markin claims that COVID-19 is to blame for the NPP administration's visit to the IMF. That is a massive falsehood because the money could have benefited the economy more than it has if the COVID monies granted by the World Bank and the European Union hadn't been stolen.

As a result, Afenyo-Markin needs to have the intelligence to talk about the missing COVID funds that the administration misappropriated, rather than bemoaning the effects of the coronavirus.

Even the Russian government is aware that Ghana's economy was already in trouble before its government and Ukraine launched the conflict, with a high unemployment rate and systemic severe corruption. One of the reasons Putin's government continues to take Ghana's government to task whenever it attributes Ghana's ailing economy and depreciating currency to the Russia-Ukraine war.

Since the NPP government never accepts responsibility, when the NPP government initially failed, they thought for a while and decided that the former president of Ghana, John Mahama, would be the appropriate person to blame. They then began their false propaganda against a president who is no longer in office.

As if they were praying for something to attribute to their failure, the coronavirus strikes the world, which became their real reason to blame, followed by the Russian-Ukraine, and frankly speaking, I don’t know what comes next after the COVID and the Ukraine war, for the lazy NPP government to blame.

Going to the International Monetary Fund is not something shameful but the NPP government is currently ashamed because they queried John Mahama when he went to the IMF. More importantly, Ken Agyapong, who represents Assin Central in parliament for the New Patriotic Party, had said that only a failed government goes to the IMF.

Afenyo-Markin shouldn't try to hide the shame of the NPP government by claiming that "there is a difference between the current government seeking help from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and that of the erstwhile National Democratic Congress administration" if he isn't prepared to amuse Ghanaians with comedy.

If Afenya-Markin is correct in his assertion that the former Mahama administration sought financial assistance from the IMF after mismanaging the country's economy, then, I have the right to counter that the NPP government kowtows to the IMF because it is incompetent, dishonest, and particularly notorious for stealing COVID funds.
