According to him, a government which feeds on “propaganda and lies” will have no cogent solution to the country’s ailing economy.
Richard Asante Yeboah was speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Friday.
Government has conceded the economy is facing difficulties and has announced measures to resuscitate it.
Finance Minister, Seth Terkper says they have instituted measures to ensure fiscal discipline and assured the economy will bounce back.
But Richard Asante Yeboah maintains that the supposed economic measures instituted by the Finance Ministry will not yield any positive results.
He blamed the current economic situation on the “reckless expenditure” at the presidency prior to the 2012 general elections.
The NPP man indicated that a campaign characterized by the distribution of monies, vehicles, laptops, bags of rice and sugar, chamber pots amongst others just to win power will certainly cripple the economy.
He bemoaned how a once vibrant lower middle income economy under the erstwhile Kufuor administration has been crippled by the “power hungry” governing National Democratic Congress in just five years.
Asante Yeboah added that “life in Ghana is now survival of the fittest” only the strong and smart once can survive.
In a rebuttal, Deputy Propaganda Secretary of the NDC, Solomon Nkansah called the bluff of Asante Yeboah describing him as an enemy of progress.
He said the NPP when in opposition always create a panic situation just to make the government in power unpopular.
The NDC Deputy Propaganda Secretary called on Ghanaians not to pay heed to the NPP’s lamentations because “they have no alternative solution to our current economic woes”.
Solomon Nkansah reiterated government’s commitment to delivering the Better Ghana Agenda promise it made to the people.
