Dr Anthony Akoto says seventy percent of people serving in the Akufo-Addo administration are “bullshit” in an extraordinary rant about the country’s dwindling economic fortunes.
In a leaked audio, which has been corroborated by party insiders, the former Member of Parliament for Tafo Pankrono, intimated that the NPP has flattered to deceive after promising to perform better than the NDC.
In the audio, Dr Akoto-Osei is heard lamenting over the poor state of the economy, adding that the NPP’s performance has made former President Mahama “look like a saint”.
“We said we have the men. where are the men? About 70 per cent of the men are bullshit. They don’t know anything that is why we are facing the challenges”, the former Minister added.
” Bawumia and Ken Ofori-Atta are the same. we sit here and think we have the people. where are the men? Ofori- Atta has been the worst finance Minister in our history. He has done a poor job. He knows nothing about the economy,” he added.
The audio was leaked the same day officials of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) met government officials on how to structure a program to salvage the economy from total collapse.
President Akufo-Addo Last Friday directed the finance to, as a matter of urgency, commence negotiations with the IMF to draft a program to restore investor confidence in the economy which has recently seen a sharp decline.
