North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has indicated that the current Economic Management Team of Ghana must be changed.
According to the MP (Member of Parliament), this management team has led the country into trouble through their mismanagement of the country’s resources.
In a JoyNews interview monitored by GhanaWeb, Ablakwa said that “they (Economic Management Team) have proven that they have no clue on how to rebound the economy.
“We need new managers with fresh ideas. You cannot be expecting a different outcome from the same people who have driven us into the ditch,” he said.
The MP advised President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to reshuffle his economic management team.
“… I expect the President to take clear actions on the economy. He should reshuffle his team, the Vice-President who has been a fantastic failure should be asked to step aside as Chairman of the Economic Management Team,” he added.
