Former President John Dramani Mahama fears further delay on the part of government to secure a deal with the International Monetary Fund will further worsen the country’s economic situation.
Ghana returned to the IMF for support after months of struggle with the economy and a cost of living crisis.
The former President in a tweet said the economic situation is distressing.
“Every passing day makes our economic situation worse”.
He urged government to “work with greater alacrity to lock in a programme with the Fund in order to create a more predictable economic outlook.”
The formal negotiations for a Fund-supported programme have begun, with the IMF team currently meeting government officials for a period of ten days.
