The National Chairman of the NPP, Stephen Ntim, has accused the NDC of misleading Ghanaians about Ivory Coast’s economic situation. Mr. Ntim made this known at a press conference in response to the NDC’s claim that Ghana should aspire to be like Ivory Coast economically.

According to Mr. Ntim, the Ivory Coast that the NDC portrayed was negotiating with the IMF to obtain a blended Extended Credit Facility of $2.6 billion. He quoted from the IMF’s release after its staff concluded a mission to Ivory Coast on 15th March 2023, stating that “The Ivorian authorities and IMF staff have reached a broad agreement on the authorities’ economic reform program that an IMF financial arrangement could support.”

The NPP chairman also highlighted that the Ivory Coast had been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, global financial tightening, and adverse spillovers from Russia’s War in Ukraine. He emphasized that the NDC was not only incompetent in managing Ghana’s economy but also in researching and providing accurate information.

Mr. Ntim urged Ghanaians to be wary of the NDC’s claims and to focus on the government’s efforts to stabilize the economy and improve the lives of citizens. He assured the public that the NPP government would continue to prioritize economic development and provide the necessary resources for the country’s growth.
