The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has predicted that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) will burden Ghanaians with about GHc 640 billion debt burden.

National chairman of the party Kofi Porturphy berated the Nana Addo/ Bawumia led administration for borrowing 40 billion GHc in only six months after taking over office.

He described the current administration as dishonest with trademarks of arrogance, and lies.

‘’It has become as clear as daylight that the NPP was only lying to the public when they kept berating the NDC government for seeking external funds for developmental projects.

The lies of the NPP have been badly exposed because in only six months, they have borrowed over 40 billion GHc in direct contravention of their sworn pledge never to borrow if given the opportunity to govern.’’ He quizzed, ‘’who cannot remember the shrill voice of Dr. Bawumia all over the place, berating the NDC government for borrowing to develop the nation.’’

‘’Today, the same Bawumia is Vice President and Head of the Economic Management Team, and we are witnessing, unprecedented levels of borrowing.

Indeed, if Akufo-Addo and Bawumia have borrowed a 40 billion GHc in only six months, then by the time they run through their four years, Ghanaians will be saddled with about a 640 million GHc debt burden,’’ he said.
