The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has charged the government to prudently use monies they borrow.
Speaking at the Policy dialogue on the economy held in Accra on Monday, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson said the ruling NPP is in a business of burdening the next generation with debt because they’re not investing wisely.
“Everyone borrows but please when you borrow, borrow smartly. Borrow not for chop chop but pay for things that can repay for itself. Even advanced countries borrow. When they borrow, they build infrastructure. They do things that can repay itself. They don’t borrow for chop chop and it is important we make that point.”
“What the NPP is seeking to do now is to actually give all of us, our kids, our generations a burden of carrying a public debt. A debt that when we are not careful, we cannot pay,” he added.
