Mahama tells gov’t to present comprehensive home-grown programme to IMF for support

Forner President John Dramani Mahama has said the government’s decision to commence talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for a bailout should mark an important step in addressing the country’s economic crisis.

He says beyond the engagements, “a comprehensive home-grown programme should be fashioned out and presented to the Fund for support.”

In a Facebook post today, Saturday, July 2, Mr Mahama said a team of skilled and competent negotiators must be put together to obtain the best set of measures with the Fund.
