The nation’s economy is currently at a crossroads, maybe on the point of collapse if no new measures are considered and adopted. This covers the soaring prices of petroleum products and other ordinary goods and services that have contributed to the country’s inflationary crisis. A few days ago, Ghanaians demonstrated to the government to express their discontent with the current status of the economy, which has yet to bear fruit.
A week ago, there was a rumor circulating on social media that the government was planning to seek assistance from the IMF. The finance minister debunked this rumor as false, as this choice was strongly opposed by Ghanaians.
Reporting from TV3 news’s official Twitter page, a communiqué says that, with the authority of the current president, Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo, Ghana would finally and formally seek a rescue from the IMF. This revelation has many individuals questioning the sincerity of the finance minister, who previously stated that the government will not seek IMF assistance. This troll was also predicated on the cogent explanation he provided earlier in parliament, so causing widespread mistrust in the finance minister.
