Kwesi Pratt Jnr, a well-known journalist and the managing editor of the Insight Newspaper, said that the $3 billion deal Ghana wants from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) won’t help Ghanaians.
He said that the deal was well thought out for the benefit of European financial institutions and wasn’t meant to help lower food prices on the Ghanaian market.
“Is this IMF deal meant to bring down the price of Kenkey or keep it the same? No. This deal with the IMF is meant to create more jobs for our people. What is this IMF deal supposed to do about the problems we have? On Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana, Kwesi Pratt was asked questions.
He also said that the deal, which has stopped hiring in the public sector, won’t be able to create work for the people of Ghana, especially the young people.
“The most important thing is that we pay back our loans to Western financial institutions,” he said. “That’s why they’ve put all these harsh rules on us to make things worse for the Ghanaian people.”
On the show, Mr. Kwesi Pratt told Ghanaians that they shouldn’t listen to the IMF’s top management because they have nothing good to say about the country.
“You’ve come to tell us that Ghana will be a paradise by 2027? Do you think we’re kids? “Long ago, I stopped listening to these people,” he said.
