Attention all Ghanaians! The latest report from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) reveals that the current government’s decision to take out four collateralized loans from China has put our country’s future at risk. The loans have left us vulnerable to losing valuable mineral resource revenue and electricity sales, which could be used to pay off our mounting debt to China.
For the past two decades, the government has relied heavily on Chinese loans to fund major projects, accumulating close to $5 billion in debt. However, our country has now become debt-trapped and is facing the worst economic crisis in decades, with an external debt portfolio exceeding $30 billion.
It is time for all Ghanaians to be vigilant and alert about the current government’s actions, which are endangering the future of our beloved country. If we do not speak up and take action now, we risk losing control of our natural resources and endangering the economic stability of our country.
We must hold our leaders accountable and demand transparency and accountability concerning these loans from China. If we do not speak up now, we may regret it in the future. Let us all unite and stand up for our future and the future of generations to come!
