Politics Was The Last Thing I Ever Dreamed Of – Muntaka confesses

Published

on

Minority Chief Whip Alhaji Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka politics never crossed his mind while growing up and even as a student leader at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

“No, No! I was just a fan of politics. I have been a Class Prefect and that is the political thing. Even in KNUST, you occupy one thing. I have been a member of the SRC but politics as it is now I never envisaged it”, he responded on Citi TV’s Upside Down on how a business-minded person like him ended up in politics.

On how he was involved in politics though not on the frontline he said “I always support the political party that I believe in. I have been a polling agent, I have been a branch executive before so anytime they are doing something I support. A friend in 1996 became the candidate for NDC in a very bizarre way. They went for primaries, they elected Dr Golo and our people ganged up that as for that community they wanted a Muslim”, he revealed on the show monitored by GhanaCNN.com.

In view of his support for the party’s candidate in 1996 and in 2,000 he became known in the constituency that at any point there was a need for support the party fell on him until the demise of Dr Gibril Adamu Mohammed in 2005 paving way for a by-election.

“Now NDC has lost the 2014 elections, our MP had come to parliament and did only 39 days and died. Now they needed a candidate that the party would not spend so much on and everybody is pointing at me and I kept running away. I had finished my Masters and remember I told you I was doing very well in the cocoa licensing buying company, Adwumapa buying limited. I was the head of research monitoring and evaluation. I said no, no just get anybody I would support” he recounted

Firstly, Nana Addo promised to eliminate corruption. After getting the power to lead the country he is even fuelling the corruption in the country. He failed to allow the law to deal with his appointees who are involved in corruption scandals.

He said in his campaign we are sitting on money and we don’t have to feel hungry. Promised to stabilize the economy but now things are beyond the country. He vowed not to visit IMF but now he is running to seek financial help.

All this shows that NPP has nothing better to offer the country and Ghanaians need someone else.

JUST IN: Bloomberg Exposes Akufo Addo’s Government On IMF Bailout; Changes Loan Target From 2 Billion

The government will be looking at receiving an amount of $3 billion over three years from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) once an agreement on a programme is reached.

This is according to international news agency, Bloomberg.

The portal reported on its website that the new amount requested as a loan was double the government’s initial target of $1.5 billion.

“Ghana’s government is in talks over a loan of about $3 billion from the International Monetary Fund, according to two people familiar with the matter.

“The amount is double what the West African nation was considering a month ago as it tries to shore up its finances and win back access to global markets. The funding would be provided over three years, the people said, asking not to be identified because the talks are still in progress and public announcements have not been made. Calls to a finance ministry spokeswoman didn’t connect,” Bloomberg added.

An IMF emailed response to the news outlet also indicated that it was to early to comment on the subject, maintaining that the Executive Board of the Bretton Woods institution ultimately wielded power in determining the programme for Ghana.

“Since negotiations for the program are starting now, it’s too early to comment on the final form the program will take.

“The Extended Credit Facility for low-income countries is the Fund’s main tool for medium-term support for countries facing protracted balance of payments problems, similar to Ghana’s. The duration of such an arrangement is between three to four years, and extendable to five years. The final program is ultimately decided by the IMF’s Executive Board,” an IMF spokeswoman told Bloomberg.

It will be recalled that the government on July 1 made a U-turn on its strong position of not seeking support from IMF amid an economic downturn.

A team from the IMF arrived in the country on July 6 and engaged Ghanaian authorities for a programme aimed at restoring macroeconomic stability and safeguarding debt sustainability among many others.

Government has continuously maintained that it will negotiate a good deal with IMF.

On Friday, August 5, American credit rating agency, Standard and Poor’s (S&P) Global Ratings pushed Ghana’s debt further into speculative territory, lowering its foreign and local currency sovereign ratings to CCC+/C from B-/B.

According to a report by marketwatch.com, S&P said its outlook for the country remains negative, “reflecting Ghana’s limited commercial financing options, and constrained external and fiscal buffers.”

S&P which is one of the ‘Big Three’ credit-rating agencies, including Moody’s Investors Service and Fitch Ratings, in their report stated that the “Covid-19 pandemic and the conflict in Russia have magnified Ghana’s fiscal and external imbalances.”

“There is also demand for foreign currency that has been driven higher by several factors, including nonresident outflows from domestic government bond markets, dividend payments to foreign investors and higher costs for refined petroleum products,” the report added.
