Mr Isaac Adongo, the Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga Central, Tuesday suggested to the government to call on experts to lead the negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

He, therefore, cited economist Mr Kwame Pianim and businessman Sam Jonah as some capable experts who could lead the team.

“They should look for Kwame Pianim immediately. He is the one who can save them and lead this team, they should go and get Ishmael Yamson and Sam Jonah the best brains in our country. Because this job is equivalent to the 1983 challenge, it’s not child play,” he said.

Addressing a Press Conference in Parliament, Mr Adongo claimed the current team leading the negotiations, including the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Mr Ken Ofori-Atta, the Finance Minister could not get the country any favourable programme to address the country’s problems.

The IMF team is expected to arrive in the country Tuesday to commence the official negotiations with the government for a budget support programme.

According to the Bolaganta Legislator, President Akufo-Addo trusted his economic advisor “but he failed him.”
