The flagbearer of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), Kofi Akpaloo says he could borrow money for the expansion of Ghana’s economy when voted for as President come December, 7.
Mr. Akpaloo pointed out that his ultimate solution to the challenges in Ghana’s economy is to borrow more money.
According to the LPG leader, Ghana’s current debt stock is “peanuts” as compared to that of America and Japan.
“America alone is owing $31 trillion, Japan is owing $11 trillion. The whole of the Africa continent, we are owing $1.3 trillion and we are calling it debt? For me, it is peanuts. We need to borrow more!”
He added that if chosen to lead this nation in the December elections, his government will borrow more money to expand the nation’s economy.
“Our problem in Ghana, in Africa is that we are afraid to borrow money to do the right things. In my government, I will borrow money to expand our economy. I will borrow money to expand Ghana’s economy because we need to grow this economy”.
He made the above disclosure during the IMANI Minority Political Parties Debate on Thursday, October 15, 2020.
