We’ve solved a lot of economic challenges we inherited – Ofori-Atta


The Akufo-Addo-led government has solved almost all the economic challenges it inherited from the previous administration, Finance Minister, Ken-Ofori Atta, has said.

He said the government will ensure that the gains are not eroded going to into 2020, an election year.

He told Accra-based Joy FM Monday 7th October, 2019 that : “WE have been here for some thirty two odd months and the budget deficit clearly indicates what the capacity restrain on our expenditures is.

“The roads issues we are going to solve it this year which means that tension will be gone for next year and then we just have to manage.

“There is a certain firmness at the Ministry of Finance that will go through 2020 to make sure that all of the gains that we have had in these three years will not be eroded.

“So far so good there is pressure on our revenues, we are working on it, we have three new commissioners at the GRA, Prof Stephen Adei has been made the chair and I think we expect great things from that.

“We intend to increase revenues and certainly hold down our expenditure so that nothing untoward happens. We are excited about the future and the 2020.

“We met many problems since we came and we have been able to tackle them.”
