Several Ghanaians on social media have thrown their weight behind the Member of Parliament for Bolagatanga central, Isaac Adongo to assume the office of the Finance Minister should his party wins the 2020 elections.

During his interview on Good Evening Ghana, Thursday, November 14, some viewers showered the MP with praises as he lectured the host of the show, Paul Adom Otchere on economics.

Without mincing words, Adom Otchere confirmed Ghanaians' amazement of Adongo’s striking presentation with the statement, “Wow, that’s a tough interview to have, isn’t it?"

Among other comments, the MP who doubles as the Ranking Member of Parliament was hailed as the ‘Messi of Economics’.

“Adongo is Messi of economy oo, wow. Herh”, “Essentially this man will be NDC’s finance minister…”, “Adongo is a great asset for NDC and Ghana…”

According to some viewers, Mr Adongo was being ‘bullied’ at the initial stages of the interview, but later turned tables and exposed the display of partisanship as well as lack information by the host, Paul Adom Otchere.

Discussions on the show highlighted issues related to the collapse of some financial institutions, road projects under both the erstwhile Mahama administration and the Akufo-Addo-led government.

He described the budget as not only inconsistent with the reality but also “empty and full of lies.”
