1983 economic recovery under Rawlings led to the total destruction of Ghana – Kwesi Pratt

1983 economic recovery under Rawlings: Managing News editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr., has blamed the economic woes of Ghana on the Economic Recovery Programme embarked on by the PNDC administration under former President Flt.-Lt.(Rtd) Jerry John Rawlings in 1983.

According to him, the programme “laid the foundation for the total destruction of our country”.

He revealed that several state-owned enterprises were privatized under the programme leading to the loss of many jobs.

“Under the PNDC and Economic Recovery Programme, 400 state enterprises built with the toil and sweat of Ghanaian people under the Nkrumah regime were privatized and they have all been destroyed… between 1983 and 1985, 500,000 workers lost their jobs.”

He added that the programme plays a role in the struggle of Ghana’s currency on the international market.

“Between 1983 and now the national currency has been devalued by more than 40,000%,” he noted

The veteran journalist believes the nation and Africa as a whole can only move beyond this era by adopting socialism.

“The path forward, the path to liberation, the path to prosperity for Ghanaian people and for African people and for all oppressed people is not neo-liberalism, it is not capitalism. If we don’t adopt socialism, if we don’t fight for socialism we aren’t going nowhere.”

“The way out is to intensify this struggle for a new society built on the foundations of scientific socialism as Padmore, Nkrumah and others declared in the final resolution of the 5th pan African congress in Manchester ‘ Africa united under the banner of scientific socialism is the way forward’,” he added.

Akufo-Addo has become stubborn, he no longer listens to God – Prophet Owusu Bempah

Akufo-Addo has become stubborn, he no longer listens to God – Prophet Owusu Bempah

Prophet Isaac Owusu Bempah has disclosed that he no longer has a close relationship with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo because the president is no longer listening to God.

In an interview posted on the YouTube channel of RTV Ghana, the preacher is heard lamenting how Akufo-Addo’s countenance towards matters of God has dipped.

Asked whether he was mistaken to have backed the President spiritually in his days in opposition, Bempah insisted that he did what was told to him by God at the time.

He likened his current relationship with the president to that of Saul and Samuel in the Bible, positing that he was Samuel – a man simply directed by God to anoint His chosen one. While Akufo-Addo was Saul – the chosen one who disobeyed God and was visited with hard times.

“Samuel was asked to anoint Saul to become King, things did not go well, things went rough and that was because Saul became stubborn and was not listening to God and Samuel, so Samuel distanced himself from Saul.

“When Samuel tried to intervene at a point, God asked him to stay off because Saul had showed disobedience and so I see that the pure heart Akufo-Addo for which God chose him, has changed.

“He doesn’t listen to God anymore, and the prayers that clergymen used to say for him, he doesn’t allow it any longer. So, if you like him to Saul, it is the same thing, Samuel was only instructed by God to anoint Saul because he was God’s own choice,” Prophet Isaac Owusu Bempah stressed.

It’s a done deal for NDC in 2024 if you go back to IMF – Kennedy Agyapong to NPP

done deal for NDC in 2024

It’s a done deal for NDC in 2024 if you go back to IMF – Kennedy Agyapong to NPP

Firebrand and a Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has gone haywire over the government’s decision to seek a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) warning of dire consequences for the party ahead of the 2024 general elections.

Without mincing words, the NPP financier explains after all the ‘noise’ he made against the Mahama government for lack of policy credit; the Akufo-Addo government is disappointing to him and many Ghanaians for following suit.

“It is just like handing over power to NDC without a contest, straight away because of the noise we made, and I chew my own words back when I said the NDC went to IMF because of mismanagement of the economy. So if NPP is going to IMF, what am I going to say?”, Ken Agyapong quizzed.

“So breaking the 8 is going to be tough, my message to you is simple, you cannot read my lips and I am not scared of anybody in the party, I will tell you the gospel truth, those who take you to IMF cannot break the 8,” he said this during a meeting with some NPP party members.

In a release issued on Friday, the Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah announced that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has directed Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta to commence official engagements with the International Monetary Fund for a financial bailout.
