Majority, Minority in heated debate over ‘bloated’ debt stock

There was a fiery debate on the floor of Parliament today [Tuesday] over Ghana’s current debt stock.

Whereas the Minority alleged that government has piled on additional debt of GHc28 billion within the last 12 months, the Majority argued otherwise.

The two sides in Parliament engaged in the heated exchanges during discussions on the Annual Public Debt Management report brought before the House.

According to Minority Spokesperson on Finance, Cassiel Ato Forson, figures from the IMF vindicate their position on the debt position of the country, but Chairman of the Finance Committee, Dr Mark Assibey Yeboah said the Minority is being mischievous with the figures.
