Alan Kyerematen wasted his time working for Akufo-Addo gov’t ~ NPP Chairman

If president Nana Akufo-Addo were to be a listening president, he would have paid attention to calls by the party to reshuffle his finance minister who failed to demonstrate competence in handling the economy, this is according to former Sagnarigu constituency chairman of the NPP, Alhassan Yahaya popularly known as Chairman Poncho.

The former NPP Chairman who made the comments during a live radio studio discussion on Radio Tamale’s current affairs programme dubbed; ‘Ashahara Nye Dini’ (What’s Your Prove), hosted by Fuseini Safianu, Wednesday, July 5, through a phone in, disagreed with his colleague NPP panelist in the studio who indicated that “Alan is not truthful about him offering the government his advice on IMF and it was rejected”.

The obviously angry former chairman rebuked, the NPP rep for asking why Alan Kyeremanten didn’t advised the president (on the economy) instead he watched on?

Does the president look like someone who is ready to listen to advice from any other person? …he asked the communicator.

The former Minister of Trade and Industry and New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer aspirant, Alan Kyerematen, has asserted that Ghana could have avoided seeking assistance from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) if his ideas had been heeded and implemented.

During his Greater Accra delegates’ tour, Alan Kyerematen highlighted the President’s Special Initiatives (PSI) introduced during the erstwhile John Agyekum Kuffour’s administration as a game-changing concept that could have transformed Ghana’s economic trajectory if embraced by the nation.

Reflecting on his contributions to the country, he expressed a sense of regret, stating, “the amount of work I have done for this country, sometimes I even feel ashamed talking about it.

”In President Kufuor’s era, I was one of the senior ministers in Kufuor’s administration. I brought PSI (The President’s Special Initiatives), and if Ghanaians had listened to me, today Ghana wouldn’t have gone to the IMF,” he added.

He emphasized his role in introducing the President’s Special Initiatives during President John Agyekum Kufuor’s administration and suggested that had Ghanaians embraced his ideas, the country would not have resorted to seeking assistance from the IMF, he is quoted to have said.
