WHERE WAS KWESI BOTCHWEY WHEN YOU HANDED THE KEYS TO THE ECONOMY TO THE IMF?
The comedy of errors exhibited by Mahama in his live video cannot go unnoticed.
He proposes to set up a Kwesi Botchwey-led Economic Response Team with the view to coming up with alternative suggestions ideal to propel the economy to normalcy.
There appears to be some incongruities between this suggestion and Mahama’s own stewardship as President from 2012 to 2016. For someone who had these economist wizards, one wonders how the economy was run aground.
Kwesi Botchwey and his so-called experts in the field of economic management were probably asleep when we had to organize an economic forum at Senchi to brainstorm on measures to redeem the economy from the quagmire it found itself in.
Maybe the ‘great’ Kwesi Botchwey was in a different world, a world far removed from civilization so that when we decided at Senchi that we were handing over the keys to the management of the economy to the IMF, he was in the dark about same.
Prof. Botchwey was obviously sojourning on an alien planet, Pluto, to be precise, so that when the keys were finally handed over to the IMF, he was not around.
For someone who claims to have the magic wand to walk us out of this so-called economic mess he loudly babbled about, he left an economy with a growth rate of 3.7%, the lowest to be experienced in so many years.
For someone whose economic records do not worth a dime to be professing economic theories now, he still holds this notion that Ghanaians are diseased from forgetfulness.
Nakedness promising you with clothes is more like it. A case of a brothel offering advice on morality. He was incompetent in power but useless in opposition.
