Executive Director of the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA), Sulemana Braimah responded to the government’s delight after reaching an IMF staff-level agreement (IMF).

He added the same NPP administration jubilated after departing the previous program, which Mahama’s NDC claimed to be superior economic managers.

To him, there’s no reason for the same administration to return to a location they never liked and yet celebrate.

“Sometime ago, they asked us to clap for them for exiting an IMF programme. Now they are asking us to clap for them for being able to have an IMF programme,” Mr. Braimah said in a tweet on Tuesday, December 13.
