Mahama was good at managing Ghana’s economy – Seth Terkper to Akufo-Addo

Former Finance Minister, Seth Tekper has refute claims of President Akufo-Addo indicating that former President John Mahama superintended over the worst statistics in the country’s economic history.

President Akufo-Addo speaking on Wontumi TV in Kumasi days back said John Mahama presided over the worst statistics in the economic history of our country.

President Akufo Addo added that,Mahama picked an economy and oil company and then sunk it into a 3.4 percent rate of growth.”

Speaking on Neat FM monitored by Talksafrica.com, the former Finance Minister in the erstwhile Mahama administration said someone who presided over the worst economy would not have set up ESLA (Energy Sector Levy Act)

“ESLA has brought in nearly 20bn . . . if we have this much revenue why do we still have bailouts not being paid? Why are we issuing bond without interest for five years? This is revenue which was described as a nuisance tax .  the fact that they (NPP) said they will cancel it . . . so when my President (Akufo-Addo) describes his predecessor as worst . “
